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.

Eddie Izzard is fantastic
21 September 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Once again Eddie Izzard tackles subjects that the average comedian would not be able to handle. However, Izzard, who could never be called normal, manages to keep the audience in fits of laughter. This is one video which you will be able to watch over and over again.
