EDDIE IZZARD (Angus Scattergood) is already one of the most celebrated comics of his generation and has also developed an equally stellar reputation as a film, television, and stage actor.

Izzard is currently on his standup comedy tour, Force Majeure. Force Majeure is the most extensive comedy tour ever (we think). Launched in March of 2013, the tour has taken Izzard to 29 countries on five continents including all 50 of the United States.

Izzard was also recently cast in Stephen Frears' film, Victoria and Abdul, for Universal. Izzard will play the role of Bertie, Prince of Wales, who disapproves of the relationship between his mother, Queen Victoria (Judi Dench) and a young Indian servant (Ali Fazal) and tries to force the servant out of the Royal Household.

On television, Izzard was last seen in the Sony PlayStation Network superhero fantasy and crime noir series, "Powers." He also recently captivated audiences with his masterful performance as 'Dr. Abel Gideon' in Bryan Fuller's series, "Hannibal." Izzard also starred in and served as a producer on the critically acclaimed FX Networks series, "The Riches." His other notable television credits include Castles in the Sky, Treasure Island, and Lost Christmas.

Highlights from Izzard's film career include Boychoir, Valkyrie, Ocean's Thirteen and Ocean's Twelve, Across the Universe, Mystery Men, Shadow of the Vampire, and The Cat's Meow.

His dramatic stage appearances include David Mamet's Race and The Cryptogram, the title role in Marlowe's Edward II, 900 Oneonta, and A Day in the Death of Joe Egg in London and on Broadway, which garnered him a Tony nomination for Best Actor.

Izzard has also achieved great success with his one man shows including Stripped and Force Majeure. He now tours his show in four languages (English, French, German and Spanish) and on the 70th anniversary of D-Day, in Caen Normandy, he performed his show Force Majeure 3 times, in 3 hours, in 3 languages - German, English, and French (the 3 languages that the Battle of Normandy were fought in.) All proceeds went to charity. His performance in Dress to Kill earned him a New York Drama Desk Award and two Emmy Awards. In 2010, Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story received an Emmy Award nomination.

Izzard made his West End stage debut in 1993 in his one-man show Live at the Ambassadors, in which he received an Olivier Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement. Live at the Ambassadors was followed by a succession of critically-acclaimed shows including Unrepeatable, Definite Article, Glorious, Dress to Kill, Circle, Sexie and Stripped.

On March 20, 2016, Izzard completed running 27 marathons in 27 days in South Africa as a tribute to Nelson Mandela and raised over $2.6 million ($3.3 million) for Sport Relief, a charity that helps improve the lives of people in impoverished countries. In 2009, Izzard ran 43 marathons in 51 days through England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland for charity and helped raise $1.8 million ($2.7 million) for Sport Relief.
