There are no actual jazz chickens in Eddie Izzard’s new Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death and Jazz Chickens. But there’s plenty of insight into what makes the beloved comedian tick – he credits coming out as transgender in 1985 for giving him the confidence to build his career.

Check out his conversation with NPR’s Kelly McEvers here.

OKAY ALSO WE HAVE TO INCLUDE THIS BECAUSE REALLY HOW COULD WE NOT. 

Ah! Ah!  You said death! I heard you!

Fav British and Irish comedians

John Cleese, for his angry acting.

Stephen Fry, for his mild-mannered, intelligent wit, great voice and fantastic novels.

Eddie Izzard, for his energy, sarcasm and style.

Jo Brand because she is a hell of a strong character. Read her autobiography.

Dylan Moran, because he does not give a fuck. And he is great live.

Bill Bailey, because he is a clever musical genius. I had the luck to see him live.

Miranda Hart, with whom I relate to on almost spiritual level. Her book is also great and helped me a lot.

Richard Ayoade, who not only mastered his nerdy character stück but is also a brilliant writer.

David Mitchell, who caught my eye on panel shows and then in Peep Show. His autobiography is also worth reading. 

Noel Fielding & Julian Barratt, separate or together, these two gentleman showed a totally different world of comedy I instantly fell in love with.
