I had the treat of seeing Mr. Izzard on June 6th, the 71st anniversary of D-Day at the Hollywood Bowl. And it struck me again how his tour de force wit is uniquely tied to history, like if your favorite professor was an action transvestite with killer comedic skills.

In the year previous he had preformed his comedy routine in three languages; French, English, German, and donated the proceeds to charity in tribute to those who fought, and continue to fight for democracy.

So a Sunday shout-out to Eddie Izzard, who continues to dazzle and instruct and do a soul good.
