Famous comedian, marathon-runner and Labour Party member Eddie Izzard is running for one of three new places on Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC) as an independent candidate and is considered by many to be the main threat to a clean sweep of three new positions by the ‘grassroots left slate’ supported by Momentum and the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy.

While he is standing as an independent, his candidacy is supported by right-wing Labour factions Progress and Labour First, but he recently asked for his name to be removed from a website they had set up to support their preferred candidates.

Izzard is currently in France, where he’s performing stand-up ‘improv’ comedy in French – he speaks it fluently – which he says ‘terrifies’ him, but in spite of that he’s also learning German with a view to performing in that language too.
