CROSS-DRESSING comedian Eddie Izzard will headline Crystal Palace's annual comedy night at the Fairfield Halls in July. Eagles fan Izzard will be joined by fellow supporter Mark Steel as well as Mock the Week's Holly Walsh at Stand Up For The Palace on Thursday, July 17. The event will be hosted by Match of the Day 2 comedian Kevin Day and actor Jim Piddock with all proceeds going to the CPFC academy. Izzard became an associate director at Palace in 2012 and has spoken of his childhood obsession with the club. He said at the time: 'All I really want is for Crystal Palace to win every game from now until the end of time. That's all. I know that's a tough thing to ask but that really is what I want." Izzard was in Croydon a fortnight ago dressed in make-up to lend his support to Croydon Labour's election bid. Tickets, which are on sale now, are priced at £35 and £30 and are available from the Fairfield Halls box office on 020 8688 9291 or at www.fairfield.co.uk
