Classic Stand-up
2 February 2002 | by (Dixie, USA) – See all my reviews

If you are fortunate enough to get a copy of this Out of Print Video (until they re-release it... I hope), you will see Eddie in a way you really haven't before. It is definitely classic material. Though he's still honing the rough edges in his style, it is still far better than most so-called stand-ups who all seem to think anymore that the only way to get a laugh is to curse. Yes, there is occasional profanity, but it's more part of the dialog and is natural in his speech, not overbearing and forced. Also, Eddie is dressed in a very different manner. It seems like a suit a man would wear, and no obvious makeup other than some nail polish. But again, that's rarely the point of his routine. I found that his more conservative look actually was a bit less distracting (the first time you watch him, his look distracts you for a bit normally, but you soon forget).

I really won't go into the routines, but just say it's his usual observation of life, with his regular impressions of James Mason as God, Sean Connery, and the like.

Being in the US, this video is doubly hard to get (it was never released in the US). I am glad I made the effort.
