Eddie Izzard made his first stage appearance in London's West End in 1993 with his one-man comedy show Live at the Ambassadors. The show earned Izzard an Olivier Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement and garnered Izzard his first British Comedy Award for Top Stand-Up Comedian. He returned to the West End the next year with his second one-man show Unrepeatable, followed by his dramatic West End debut as the lead in the world premiere of David Mamet's 'The Cryptogram' with Lindsay Duncan, which landed Izzard his second starring role in '900 Oneonta'. Izzard remained on stage in '95 portraying the title character in Christopher Marlowe's groundbreaking 'Edward II'. In '96 Izzard made his big screen debut alongside Bob Hoskins and Robin Williams in The Secret Agent (1996) and staged another one-man show, 'Definite Article', for which he received his second British Comedy Award. He then took 'Definite Article' to major cities outside the UK including New York City and returned to the West End with a new show, Glorious, which included a month in New York City at PS122. By '98 Izzard took on another film, Velvet Goldmine, with Ewan McGregor, as well as staging his US breakthrough one-man show, 'Dress to Kill', which aired on HBO and went on to earn Izzard two Emmy Awards in 2000. At the end of the decade Izzard took on Lenny Bruce securing the lead in Sir Peter Hall's West End production of 'Lenny'. Izzard started 2000 touring the world with his most recent one-man show 'Circle', and continued to develop his acting resume with roles in _Criminal, The (2000)_ , Shadow of the Vampire (2000) with John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe, co-starring opposite Kirsten Dunst in the Peter Bogdanovich-directed The Cat's Meow (2001) as Charlie Chaplin and taking the male lead in 'A Day in the Death of Joe Egg' on the London stage. In 2003 Izzard can be seen on the big screen in the French production Muraya- Expanded Reality and Alex Cox's _Revenger's Tragedy, A (2002)_ and on the small screen in a BBC min-series titled 40.
