One of the most acclaimed comedians of her generation, Izzard’s unique, tangential, absurd, and surreal comic narratives are lauded for their creativity and wit, earning her a New York Drama Desk Award and two Emmys for Dress to Kill, two British Comedy Awards for Top Stand-Up Comedian, and an Olivier Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement.

In the U.S., Izzard is the first solo stand-up comedian to perform at the Hollywood Bowl; has sold-out three consecutive nights at Radio City Music Hall and toured arenas throughout the U.S. including a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden.

On TV, Izzard most recently guest starred in the series, Hannibal, on NBC.  She starred in and served as a producer on the critically acclaimed FX Network Show, The Riches, opposite Minnie Driver, guest starred in the final season of Showtime’s United States of Tara, and her 2010 documentary, Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story, received an Emmy nomination.  Izzard can next be seen in Playstation's Powers.

Her long list of film and stage credits includes Valkyrie opposite Tom Cruise, Steven Soderbergh's Ocean’s Thirteen and Ocean’s Twelve opposite George Clooney and Brad Pitt, David Mamet's Race and The Cryptogram, the title role in Marlowe's Edward II, and A Day in the Death of Joe Egg in London and on Broadway which won her a handful of awards, including a Tony nomination for Best Actor.
