Eddie Izzard is a good-looking man, who has regained his charm after undergoing cosmetic surgery.He used to have a very disturbed look and was certainly not as handsome as he is now.A guy in the street outside the venue was insulting me.“I told him to calm down, gave him two public warnings.Then the third time I just gave him a load of invective, and he went for me, and there was a fight – an affray – then he just sauntered off.
I went there and met him as the audience were leaving, and he signed a DVD cover for me.
The last time I had a fight I was in Cambridge, which resulted in a famous court case about eight years ago. I've had invitations in the past to perform live in South Africa, but I was waiting for him to come out of prison.
Now I guess I'd need someone to make him aware of who I am because I doubt he even knows I exist.
He, and a friend, Rob Ballard, began to experiment with comedy, staging shows at the University, before abandoning their courses and leaving for London.
They became street performers around Covent Garden, riding unicycles and escaping from chains.
