The comedian and TV personality visited The Chris Moyles Show this week to talk about his forthcoming memoir, revealing: "We were performing just down the road in Covent Garden and we were really putting out and I said, 'Actually guys we're really going for it here, and it's quite good. It's not brilliant stuff, but you're just not there today so it's OK, just relax.'"

He added: "And they hadn't paid any money. There's no commitment there, but once they were dismissed they sort of wanted to stick around..."

Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death and Jazz Chickens by Eddie Izzard will be published by Penguin on 13 June.
