Eddie Izzard, London, ENGLAND

Special Thanks to Eddie for signing this image for me. 
Had such a great time at his performance "Force Majeure" when he was in Victoria. He has to be one of the funniest people on the planet. 
Here's a shot from his Q & A with his fans after the peformance. He was brilliant with the responses. . .  such a pleasure to see a performer so honestly "present" for his fans. 
Be sure to check out his site: Eddie Izzard

Love the nails!
