Comedian Eddie Izzard

Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years.  The challenge for Eddie Izzard was to run 27 marathons in 27 days representing those 27 years of wrongful imprisonment.  He raised over 1 million British pounds so far.  He finished the challenge!  I've seen this man on stage and he looks a bit odd with the cross dressing and makeup.  His comedy is unique and requires a different type of audience than a regular comedian.  At age 54 he proved that he was much more than just a funny man, he's also an athlete and a humanitarian.  Sport Relief will be able to do a lot with the donations that Eddie raised.  Way to go Eddie
