Eddie Izzard ’27 Marathon’ Marathon is Underway

When super fans of Eddie Izzard heard that he’s running 27 marathons in 27 days, they likely responded “yeah, that seems about right.” This isn’t the first time Izzard has accomplished an incredible athletic feat, in 2009 he completed 43 marathons in 51 days across the UK for Sport Relief, raising over £1.8m. Izzard has a bit of a Midas touch, whether it’s acting, writing, politics, or selling out enormous arenas for standup comedy (in 4 different languages btw), there’s nothing the guy can’t do.

12 Comedians With Real Style

We focus on everything comedy - and that includes comedy style. Not just their presence or their material, but the fashion sense they rock. Some comics build huge careers while never outgrowing 12-year-old outfits of hoodie, t-shirt, and jeans, and that's fine. But other comedians manage to both be funny and develop a style of their own, and so why not celebrate their individuality and smashing sense of self. Here's a ranking of 12 comics with the best style.

5 Mistakes We Want to See Trevor Noah Avoid

Tonight Trevor Noah takes over late night's smartest talk show, The Daily Show. When Trevor was named as Jon Stewart's successor, there were plenty of questions. At the time Noah was basically the last kid in the door. He had been hired as a correspondent in December 2014, and most people had never heard of him. Now everyone's waiting to see whether Trevor will hold his own. Trevor is smart, he knows all of these things, but its easy to forget them when you're taking over a show of this magnitude and popularity.
