The stand-up comedian of his generation. Star of stage and screen. Tireless supporter of charity. Runner. Political campaigner. Fashion icon. Human. There is no one quite like Eddie Izzard.

'Don't get somewhere as fast as possible. Get somewhere as good as possible'

Star of stage and screen. Tireless supporter of charity. Marathon runner. Political campaigner. Fashion icon. Human. There is no one quite like Eddie Izzard. This is the story of how he broke through.

His relentless optimism has led him to always do things his own way, even if it didn't work first time, and his incredible self-belief has pushed him to keep on trying, even if it didn't work the second or third time either.

Whether he was putting on teddy bear shows in boarding schools or swordfighting on the streets of London, Eddie never stopped trying to achieve his dreams of becoming a performer.

Brimming with his distinctively surreal humour and disarming candour, Believe Metells the story of a boy who never took no for an answer.
