Dyslexia: Eddie Izzard talks to the BBC about Creativity

In a frank interview with the BBC, successful comedian, Eddie Izzard discusses his dyslexia and the creativity and inspiration for his comedy, his serious acting roles on stage and film, and the continuing importance of his mother, who died from cancer when he was only 6 years old.

I have great admiration for the man and his tremendous energy, running 43 marathons across the UK in 51 days. Never had I seen a man suffer so much through sheer courage and determination.

Listen here on BBC Radio 4 broadcast
