    Default Eddie Izzard is a cool guy

    I know he has some fans here on GR,and it's a great story


    Sure, Eddie Izzard is one hilarious comedian. Sure, you might be disappointed at his performance in Valkyrie, but I doubt he will be blamed for any of it. He looked like he was having a good time and sometimes you do things for the paycheck. The thing that makes Eddie so great though is not only his humor and wit, but the fact he has a really big heart. A fan;s father wrote a note to Eddie saying that the fan was not going to be able to attend Eddie's show in London because he had been hurt in the Mumbai attacks back in November.

    The dad had simply asked Eddie to send along a note to the hospital in an attempt to cheer up his son. Eddie went way better than that. Eddie showed up at the hospital and performed for the fan as well as every other patient in the hospital. Now, he didn't just say a few jokes. Nope, Eddie did his entire set. The entire 90 minutes. You just have to love that and the person that makes that kind of effort when a much simpler gesture would have been sufficient. Instead of making one person happy though, he decided to make everyone happy. Wonder if he wore a nurse's uniform.

    Love him. Not that I really needed another reason.

    That, I would find very cool, although I bet there were people in the hospital, stuck in their beds, thinking 'Who the hell is this guy??'

    I lurve me some Eddie.

    I adore him. I read this the other day and not that I needed more of a reason, but now I have one.

    I've seen him live in NY a few times. He's just amazing, and I loved him as Charlie Chaplin in The Cat's Meow

    Didn't know he was in the movie. Have to check it out on IMDB. Damn, that is great casting.

    Very nice gesture on his part.
