Eddie Izzard: Comedian wants Leeds voters to tick box for change


COMEDY met politics in Leeds when Eddie Izzard dropped in on students and shoppers in the city yesterday.

The cross-dressing comic was in no joking mood when he visited students at Leeds Metropolitan University’s City Campus Library, in Woodhouse.

His appearance also drew the crowds in Briggate, where he expressed his support for the Yes to Fairer Votes campaign, with the help of student musicians from Leeds College of Music.

He said: “I’m delighted to be headed to Leeds. The referendum race is too close to call and voters in Leeds and Yorkshire could make all the difference.”

The stand-up comedian and actor, 49, is a leading voice behind the campaign, which backs people to vote for the alternative vote system.

His visit to Leeds came as part of a whirlwind UK tour to back the change, in which he is travelling around the country in a purple Volkswagen camper van.
