COMEDIAN MATT KIRSHEN

U.K. Comedian Matt Kirshen tells us about meeting his personal idol and Stand Up Comedy legend, Eddie Izzard. Eddie is one of the most prolific comedians of all time and resides in the UK. Matt was lucky enough to meet him on four occasions and every one of those times he made a complete dick of himself. The first time was pretty harmless but they escalated from there. One time Matt found himself backed into a corner with a decision to make. Apologize or keep a gag going… You won’t believe what he decided to go with.

The last time and only semi-decent time Matt saw Eddie was at The Comedy Store in London. Eddie was hanging out and watching a friend of his. Matt had just seen Eddie two weeks earlier in LA,  so he walked up to him to tell him how great he was, but Matt was pretty drunk that time too.
