In Believe Me, the critically acclaimed, award-winning British comedian, actor and creative chameleon recounts the dizzying rise he made from the streets of London to West End theatres, to Wembley Arena, Madison Square Garden and The Hollywood Bowl.

Writing with the same candor and razor-sharp insight evident in his comedy, he reflects on a childhood marked by the loss of his mother, boarding school and alternative sexuality, as well as a life in comedy, film, politics, running and philanthropy.

Honest and generous, Izzard's Believe Me is an inspired account of a very singular life thus far.
