Trivia

Eddie's stage prop is a very large open book with selections of text from various examples of classical fiction projected onto the pages. Selections include "The Proposal" by Anton Chekhov, William Shakespeare's "Macbeth", Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky" and "The Mayor of Casterbridge" by Thomas Hardy. In all selections of text every word "the" is replaced by "definite article." Hence the title of the video production. For instance: "'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:" is replaced by, "'Twas brillig, and definite article slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in definite article wabe:" See more »

Quotes

Eddie: Helloooo. Are you the people of Gaul? Wonderful, well we are the Romans... yes we are... I'm a centurion, and this is our leader, Mr. Dog.

Amusing, but it never gave me anything extra
1 April 2003 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I caught myself giggling from time to time, but I never laughed out loud. However, it is impressive how stand up comedians really hits the bullseye, when it comes to everyday issues. An example would be when he talks about "rolling the batteries in the remote, you get an extra 2 days", or "Que-strategy at the mall"...
