Fans of the movie 'Marathon Man' will recall Laurence Olivier's Nazi dentist hissing: "Is it safe?" Now Eddie Izzard is no Lord Larry – although he does a mean James Mason impression – but in Eddie Izzard – Marathon Man, the answer to the question is a resounding "No".

It's six years since Eddie Izzard's last full national tour. At his peak, his tours were never more than three years apart so it is a testimony to his following that this prolonged hiatus has not prevented him from stepping out as a stadium comic. In fact, in line with the burgeoning popularity of comedy, quite the reverse has happened and next month, Izzard is to become only the fourth comedian to play the monolithic Madison Square Garden in New York, the other three being Americans, Chris Rock, Andrew "Dice" Clay and Dane Cook.

As a transvestite comic who claimed never to have run farther than five miles before, Eddie Izzard was always an unlikely candidate to run 1,100 miles around Britain in aid of charity. But yesterday the 47-year-old stand-up comic arrived in Trafalgar Square having completed 43 marathons across the country in just 52 days.

Two years ago Ricky Gervais shrugged off criticism for a poor performance at the Concert for Diana by making a bold as brass entrance to his Edinburgh Castle show, wearing a crown and sharing the stage with a pair of giant Golden Globe replicas. This year the comedian entered the festival city buoyed by a burgeoning Hollywood career, something that he was happy to wave in our faces with some introductory trailers, one of which featured his new film The Invention of Lying. The message, as ever, was 'look at me I am a big star and see how I ironically bask in that status'.
