‘So I called myself Pip’

Two icons of British culture, born exactly 150 years apart, come together as Eddie Izzard reads and discusses Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations. The acclaimed comedian has long been a fan of Dickens’s writing and last year recorded an audiobook of the classic tale. Izzard delivers the story of the humble Pip with all his trademark charm. A superlative hour of entertainment.
