Eddie Izzard at his worst - self indulgent, lazy, lacking material ....
A dreadful show by a great comedian. The audience laughter is often out of relief that there's finally a joke or out of habit. He's on auto pilot, instead of witty ad lib we have ramblings, instead of bizarre clever observations we have inane diversions. When a comedian notes to himself that a joke hasn't worked well, it can be quite funny, when he's had to do it five or so times in the opening 15 minutes, it's embarrassing; if an unknown comedian performed this, he'd be booed off within minutes.
In short don't bother watching this, watch everything else he's done and let's pretend this never happened.
