Calgary Herald - - YOU -

Bri­tish co­me­dian Ed­die Iz­zard wore makeup and heels as he col­lected his hon­orary doc­tor­ate from York St John Univer­sity in Eng­land on Tues­day. Iz­zard was pre­sented with a Doc­tor of Let­ters de­gree for his work with lan­guages, hav­ing per­formed in French, Ger­man and Span­ish. “Which I, as a dyslexic per­son, like to call a Doc­tor of Let­tuce,” he told re­porters af­ter­wards. “... It’s fun to do those things and then for some­one to give you an hon­orary de­gree, as well.”
