All the Queen's Men (2001)
The 47-year-old Izzard — who has enjoyed international success since the mid-90s — is famous for his absurdist, interactive style of standup, which often sees him change his performances based on audience reactions. His commentary runs the gamut from Roman history to squirrels in makeup, from the Catholic church to vacuum noises, from the Heimlich maneuver to French instructional tapes. He even regularly works foreign languages into his English-speaking shows; he once recited a two-minute version of Speed in French.
Until recently, he performed in drag as a self-proclained "executive transvestite," but he has since transitioned into a more "traditional" appearance.
They are Stephanie Bell ("The Devil of Apalachia"), Carlo Besasie ("All the Queen's Men"), Mouncey Ferguson ("Forger"), Barry Kneller ("The Mechanics") and David Minnihan ("Father John").
