Sure, Eddie Izzard is one hilarious comedian. Sure, you might be disappointed at his performance in Valkyrie, but I doubt he will be blamed for any of it. He looked like he was having a good time and sometimes you do things for the paycheck. The thing that makes Eddie so great though is not only his humor and wit, but the fact he has a really big heart. A fan;s father wrote a note to Eddie saying that the fan was not going to be able to attend Eddie's show in London because he had been hurt in the Mumbai attacks back in November.
The dad had simply asked Eddie to send along a note to the hospital in an attempt to cheer up his son. Eddie went way better than that. Eddie showed up at the hospital and performed for the fan as well as every other patient in the hospital. Now, he didn't just say a few jokes. Nope, Eddie did his entire set. The entire 90 minutes. You just have to love that and the person that makes that kind of effort when a much simpler gesture would have been sufficient. Instead of making one person happy though, he decided to make everyone happy. Wonder if he wore a nurse's uniform.
