Storyline

Eddie Izzard's routine has a loose trajectory from the beginning of the Old Testament and the creation of the world in seven days to Revelations; God, in the voice of James Mason, makes several appearances. Along the way, Izzard dramatizes or comments on the search for a career, bad giraffes, Prince Philip's gaffes, toilets in French campsites, the mysteries of hopscotch, becoming one's Dad, getting a computer to print, and his court victory after being the victim of tranny bashing. Izzard calls his bits "mimes," in part because his physical comedy is sans props. Filmed at Labatt's Apollo Theatre, Izzard is in a shimmering red pants suit and low heels.

Quotes

Eddie: The same people who make toasters make showers. For they have a turney button too that lies. For we all know turn turn turn turn for hot. Turn turn turn turn for cold. But the only position we're interested in is the position between there... and there. One nanomillimeter between fantastically hot, and fucking freezing.

Terribly quick wit!
4 September 1999 | by (McKinney, Texas) – See all my reviews

Eddie Izzard is the smartest stand up I have seen since the early George Carlin material. He leaves no sacred topic untouched (particularly religion). I saw his HBO special, Dress to Kill, and ordered Glorious as soon as I knew about it. It is well worth it.
