OE news

Eddie Izzard (Pennell 1975-80) was interviewed on the NBC talk show Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday 6 February.

Eddie, whose one-person performance of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations is currently on at the Greenwich House Theater in New York, spoke about the development of the show and the demands of playing all the characters in the novel. Eddie's birthday is on 7 February which, coincidentally, is Dickens' date of birth too (150 years earlier).

Eddie also spoke about performing stand-up in multiple languages and shared theories on the meaning of life... all of which you can see by following this link to YouTube:
