Comedian and actor Eddie Izzard to run for Mayor of London

British comedian and actor Eddie Izzard has revealed to The Sun that he wants to be the next London Mayor

The Sun has the exclusive:

EDDIE IZZARD has revealed his plans to run for London Mayor, claiming only a comic can turn the country around.
The funnyman reckons he can inspire people to work harder and said he would pack in the stand-up to fulfil his ambition.

He told TV Biz: ?I?m going to chuck in comedy in six years to go into politics. I?ve proved I can be determined and do things in a different way. And you need comedy in politics. There are lots of decisions to be made and people get bored talking about things that are only slightly different.

?It?s very dry so you need comedy to make it palatable.?

He also said he would rather grab people?s attention with his tours than with hellraising behaviour.

He said: ?You can get people?s attention by doing huge tours and I?d rather do that than throw a TV out of a window.
