This is a BBC documentary that charts the life of one of the hardest working men in show business and a fascinating watch it is.
Eddie tells his own story which includes the death of his mother and his upbringing in boarding school to his relentless and manic obsession with becoming a stand up comedian and actor.
What i like about this , is that this is that the story is told in his own words. It is intermingled with very old footage of his early work ( and it wasn't very good) to some of his iconic sketches , including my personal favorite , the Fashion full circle gag. Dick head , normal , trendy , Dick head!
He comes across as being a very intelligent man yet somehow venerable and i don't think there is anyone around at the moment who can hold a light to him.
