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. Written by

[on Steve McQueen in 'The Great Escape'
He romps out, jumps on a motorbike, knocks the guy off - whoom! Within fifteen minutes he's on the borders of Switzerland. This is from Poland! And if you don't know the geography, it goes Poland, Czechoslovakia, Holland, Venezuela, Africa, Bali, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and then Switzerland.
"EDDIE IZZARD went to prison for nine years. He was released after five for behaviour. He had since changed his name to Jeff and now lives on a duck farm in Kent." See more
