Trivia

Eddie's stage prop is a very large open book with selections of text from various examples of classical fiction projected onto the pages. Selections include "The Proposal" by Anton Chekhov, William Shakespeare's "Macbeth", Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky" and "The Mayor of Casterbridge" by Thomas Hardy. In all selections of text every word "the" is replaced by "definite article." Hence the title of the video production. For instance: "'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:" is replaced by, "'Twas brillig, and definite article slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in definite article wabe:" See more »

Watch out for the petrol station Murderers!
24 June 2000 | by CharltonBoySee all my reviews

Well what can you say about Eddie Izzard? well he is bloody funny to start with. This stage show which was recorded at the Shaftesbury theatre ,London is without doubt one of his best. His topic of discusion range from Noah to fashion(cool,cool,normal,looking like a dick head, cool!) and from James Bond to why dogs got the first say in how to have sex and why all the other animals had to do it doggy style! If you get the video there is a documentary on it which follows him around the world with his act. He even plays in Paris and tries to do it in french. If you have never seen Eddie Izzard watch the Definite Article. 8 out of 10
