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.

Make you smile when you thought you could't!
13 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Eddie Izzards talents have taken him far beyond any one else in the comedy industry. This movie will not make you stop laughing and its the kind of thing that you can watch over and over again and can make you smile when you thought you could not!His quick wit and his genius ability to ties lose ends up and to make everything fit together gives you a sense that this guy is not just up there for money or for fame, he is up there because he has a talent to make people laugh, and genually that's a rare thing to be able to come back and to continuously get such a positive response about it Thanks Eddie Chiao...
