Izzard won the Top British Stand Up Comedian Award in 1993 and 1996.
"I'm used to just talking, trying to make things fantastically interesting even when they're incredibly boring. But in real life, I don't blather on, because someone might tell me to shut the fuck up." --Eddie Izzard to Time Out New York, September 4-11, 1997.
"I'm a male transvestite, and I fancy women. I don't know why. I'm open for fancying men, but I can't get my head around that. Which makes me think it's a genetic thing. No particular choice there. So, male tomboy ... That's really where I am. Running. Jumping. Climbing trees. Then putting on makeup when I was up there." --Eddie Izzard, from the opening minutes of "Dress to Kill", quoted in The New Yorker, April 6, 1998.
About the spontaneity of his act: "I know the rough order of things, but I change it around, because once you lock into certain arrangements, it becomes boring. When I'm starting and stopping and making stuff up on the spot, that's when I like it, that's when it sparkles. It's like a heightened version of a conversation." --Izzard quoted in Los Angeles Times, September 6, 1998.
