Eddie Izzard is one of the best stand-up comics of all time. His use of language, impressions, visual comedy and his ability to bring every joke full circle is an incredible talent.
I had the pleasure to catch Edie Izzard’s latest show at the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena on the 29th May and it was great. But how does it compare with his other shows?
Well, there is something that happens to musicians, television shows, film franchises and even stand up comics… sometimes they hit such heights that follow up shows fail to hit the high notes of earlier successes. Eddie Izzard, as brilliant as he is, has fallen into this too…and while Circle, Sexie and Stripped (the last I also watched live in 2009) were funny, they were never as good as definite Article, Glorious or Dressed To Kill. I never felt his last three shows had the classic moments of ‘cake or death? »
