Surreal and hilarious
29 March 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Recorded at the Albery Theatre one night in March 1994. Eddie Izzard delivers over 70 minutes of scatological material to a sold out crowd. He covers everything from films, Star Trek, cats, shopping and supermarkets.

Back in 1994 Izzard was still of the mind that comedy should not be made for TV – in fact it was rare for any of his live shows to be put on TV. To this day he hasn't been tempted to make a sitcom in the same way as other standups of his generation have (Lee Evans' `so what now' shows he was right!).

This show is a perfect example of Eddie at his best – his mind going in a million different directions but being held in place by his original script, his ideas surprising and delighting the audience. It may not hold up to repeated viewings, but it's still very funny while it's fresh.. Izzard is a transvestite but this isn't his show – in fact it barely matters after the first 30 seconds.

You can see the influence of Monty Python and The Goons in his work – his surreal thought process is straight from Milligan himself (RIP). In terms of stand up shows this video shows that Eddie Izzard deserves his place as one of the best – and for not cheaply taking his comedy into the first TV sitcom that came begging, he deserves all our respect. Hilarious.
