Some lighter fare: a British man was caught in the Mumbai attacks and "shattered his body" trying to escape. During his recovery (back in Britain) he missed an Eddie Izzard show he had been really looking forward to, and his father wrote Izzard asking for a letter of condolence or somesuch.
Well, Izzard decided that a much better idea would be to come to the hospital and do the routine by his bedside. All 90 minutes of it.
This isn't that, but here's the clip of Izzard they embedded in the article. Bloody hilarious as always.
