Izzard has cited his main comedy role model as monty python and john cleese once referred to him as the "lost python".[2] in 2009, he completed 43 marathons in 51 days for sport relief in spite of having no prior history of long distance running.[7] he is also known for his transvestism. He has won numerous awards including a primetime emmy award for individual performance in a variety or music program for his comedy special dress to kill, in 2000. Izzard's web site won the yahoo people's choice award[8] and earned the webby award.[9]

on 6 september 2012, izzard presented the medals to the athletes who had won the 800m t54 race at the london2012 paralympic games - the gold medal went to great britain athlete dave weir.

The only British humor I understand is.
1. Benny Hill (sometimes)
2. Monty Python (sometimes)
3. Are you being served (sometimes)


I understand you Brits just looove Jerry Lewis...

Always loved "Yes Minister" , A British Sitcom about how bureaucrats really run things and do whatever they want amidst the clueless elected officials.

Personally I find British humor to be hilarious. I can't even imagine how funny it would be if I actually understood it

I tried to watch Benny Hill as a kid. Didn't get it all either.
Didn't get match much Monty. Kinda want to go and watch old episodes now.
No idea what 'Are you being served' is.

Huge Topgear fan. Interesting combination of humor and 'documentary'.
