Storyline

Executive transvestite Eddie Izzard takes his show to San Francisco to give a brief history of pagan and Christian religions, the building of Stonehenge, the birth of the Church of England and of Western empires, and the need for a European dream. Along the way, he dramatizes Dr. Heimlich's search for a maneuver, the naming of Engelbert Humperdinck, Scooby and Shaggy as archetypes, Neil Armstrong on the moon, society's tolerance of mass murderers, how we sing anthems and carols, Hollywood adapting British films, JFK's trip to Berlin, thoughts on puberty, and how to work schoolbook-French phrases into Parisian conversation. Closeups catch the glint in his eye and his carefully-applied make-up. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Ciao!
7 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

Eddie Izzard is the most refreshing, talented, hilarious, sexy, amazing, quick-witted, sharp, stylish, beautiful man to come down the path in quite some time! His magnificent vocabulary and flowing verbal style show off a greatly inventive mind and when his love of history, religion, and larger-than-life characters combine with his razor-sharp instincts Dress to Kill becomes one of the most unique stand-up shows ever.

He doesn't wallow in self-laceration, put-down comments, or gross insults -three of the most repulsive and overused cliches that drown most young standups- and he actually seems like he's having fun while entertaining a theater packed full of strangers. He's a great mimic and a good actor and is undeniably the leader when it comes to stand-up comedians right now. Please don't miss this highly entertaining performance by a truly gifted artist.
