Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story is a fast-paced 103-minute documentary that blends side-splitting clips from Izzard’s outrageous gigs such as Dressed to Kill and Sexie with emotionally candid moments backstage as Izzard brainstorms his latest act from scratch. This unique insight into this much loved comedian’s life, will be available on DVD from 22nd November, priced £19.99 and will also be available for download via iTunes.
Director Sarah Townsend revisits his remarkable life by weaving a multi-layered tapestry around Eddie’s own confessions to the camera. Insights come from charming childhood home movies, enlightening vintage street-comedy footage, and friend/celebrity interviews including Robin Williams and George Clooney. There’s also Eddie’s father, whose career took the family from Yemen to Northern Ireland amid "the troubles," now musing on the impact of those moves (and on his son’s youthful fascination with his mother’s stockings). And ultimately, there’s the openness of Izzard himself. He frankly ponders past paths, and even confronts the comedy truth-in-advertising controversy that demoralized him into a three-year retreat from his free-associating stage comedy.
