Two days ago, I received a message via my college e-mail address about an event at the University of Nottingham today, at which comedian Eddie Izzard was to give a speech/Q&A session about his perspective on the upcoming European Union referendum here in the United Kingdom. My college had received some tickets by the university and the tickets were offered to some students on a first come, first served basis. I was the first to request one.
Overall, I very much enjoyed Izzard's speech/Q&A. He provided a decent balance of comedy and information and kept to a positive theme. Three other students travelled with me from my campus, as did a member of staff, and they also enjoyed the session; in addition, we became friends.
