Netflix Movies Starring Eddie Izzard

Best-known for his cross-dressing stand-up comedy routines, British actor/comedian Eddie Izzard was born on February 7, 1962 in Aden, Yemen, while his English parents were there on business. He is the son of Dorothy Ella, a nurse and midwife, and Harold John Izzard, an accountant for British Petroleum. After working as a street performer and in smaller comedy venues throughout the 1980s, Izzard received his big break with his his first stage appearance in London's West End in 1993, with his one-man comedy show Eddie Izzard: Live at the Ambassadors (1993). The show earned Izzard a Laurence Olivier Award nomination for outstanding achievement and garnered Izzard his first British Comedy Award for top stand-up comedian. He returned to the West End the next year with his second one-man show, Eddie Izzard: Unrepeatable (1994), followed by his dramatic West End debut as the lead in the world premiere of David Mamet's "The Cryptogram" with Lindsay Duncan, which landed Izzard his second starring role in "900 Oneonta".
