This Mom Rocks.......Eddie Izzard

My oldest daughter is a big fan of Eddie Izzard, as is my youngest and myself but K, is nuts for him. She discovered he is coming to Boston and the presale was today. Armed with the password and logged on well ahead of time I was able to secure some decent tickets. We had closer ones and decided to try again, but I do think seats at a slant make it easier to see for shorties like me. The arrows point to the approximate location of our seats.

If you are unfamiliar with Eddie Izzard there are plenty of videos on youtube. He is a bit bawdy and oh yeah a cross dresser.  He is very British in his humor. It must go with my, and the kids to a lesser degree, love of British rock and roll.

He is currently running marathons around the UK for charity and is on
his 40th I think. He is fun to follow on Twitter.

Merry Christms girls....and me.

I've never heard of him before. But when you mentioned about him as a good bet, I did read about him in Wikipedia and saw a few shows of him in YouTube (James Bond, Supermarket Psychology and Scary Movie). You were right - he's hilarious.

Thanks for introducing him!!!

OH JEALOUS! I skipped over from 3 Bedroom Bungalow to find the luckiest person ever. Man, it sucks living in the country. :( A friend of mine got to see him last year. She said he was no longer doing the full on cross dresser thing. That makes me sad.

I've heard of him but I'm not familiar enough to know what he does or says or anything. I hope you have the best time!!!

I didn't know angled seats were bad for shorties. I'm a shorty too. I would have thought that would be to our advantage?

Blue that's what I said slant (angled) are better fir shorties than the floor. I'll let you know. I am sure I will blog it lol

I saw him live in the UK years and years ago and he was fabulously funny. He even signed my program. Awwww! For the signing he wore a black suit, full make up and pink stilettos. He was very nice!
