Chronicles comedian Eddie Izzard's rise to fame from early influences - losing his mother to cancer at a young age before being sent with his brother to boarding school - to his close relationship today with his father.
I am a massive Izzard fan, as are many others. His shows have inspired many people to see the world from a different, and particularly more random view.
His shows like, "Dress to Kill," "Live at the Ambassadors," and, "Glorious," blew me away, and continue to lighten up my life even now, after countless viewings.
Months before, "Sexie," came out, I would travel to the DVD store once a week, and ask the same question: "Is is out yet?" The reply was always, "no," and I knew then that I would have to wait another week at least before enjoying the legendary comedian's new material.
Once it came out, I was appalled. It was the worst Izzard performance I had ever seen, and it angered me so much.
It became obvious that the DVD was rushed out to make the Christmas lists of the many millions of Izzard fans, and therein lies the problem. Normally, Izzard's DVDs are recorded towards the end of a tour, meaning that many random discoveries made during a performance could be added to the next show in a snowball effect. This means that by the end of a tour, he will have amassed even more material. The recording in Eastbourne had the manner of one of his first shows on the tour. The material was not funny, and sometimes, it felt like the only person who found it funny was Izzard himself. I question whether or not the fame has gone to his head, or whether or not the guy has a drug problem.
I was bitterly disappointed, and as a fan, I felt so let down at this pitiful attempt at humour. I can't remember a single quote.
