Eddie Izzard's routine has a loose trajectory from the beginning of the Old Testament and the creation of the world in seven days to Revelations; God, in the voice of James Mason, makes several appearances. Along the way, Izzard dramatizes or comments on the search for a career, bad giraffes, Prince Philip's gaffes, toilets in French campsites, the mysteries of hopscotch, becoming one's Dad, getting a computer to print, and his court victory after being the victim of tranny bashing. Izzard calls his bits "mimes," in part because his physical comedy is sans props. Filmed at Labatt's Apollo Theatre, Izzard is in a shimmering red pants suit and low heels.
Did You Know?
Toasters! Toasters are good too. Like them, like toast. Hm. You've got a toaster there... But it's got a turney dial knob thing on the side - and it lies to us. It does not tell the truth! For it has numbers from one to six, and they lie!
"EDDIE IZZARD went to prison for nine years. He was released after five for behaviour. He had since changed his name to Jeff and now lives on a duck farm in Kent." See more
