Storyline

Town Hall, New York City, 26 June 2000. An evening with Eddie Izzard in which he moves back and forth in time, with religion as the loose but constant theme. He begins with Pope John Paul II, and then criss-crosses to Pius XII, the Spanish Inquisition, the Crusades and Jerusalem, the world's five major religions, the Dark Ages, Jesus, and the future. Along the way, Izzard makes observations about guns and monkeys, the World Series, the NRA and the IRA, mad cows, Socrates, the Stoned Olympics, the Roman Empire, the Renaissance, and the Mona Lisa. Izzard wears black nylons, black leather pants, a black jacket and a diamond necklace. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

User Reviews

The only problem was the audience, they were like ice!

I thought he was hilarious! As soon as he walked on stage I started laughing. But the audience was in no mood for it and that threw him off, I think. Like when he was telling the one about the god of chaos out there in the middle of nowhere just trying to light his oven, (to make a flan), and he's poking a match in there and going "I'm just trying to light the oven... can't seem to get it lit.. Just trying' to.... BANG!!!" LOL!! But nobody laughed until he told them "And that was the big bang, thats how it all started." And they all kinda nodded and clapped in a "oh...I get it" way.

And then there were a few people who were laughing at everything, just in case it was funny. Every once in a while he'll just toss some nonsense out there and see what happens. But I could tell he wasn't connecting with them. He is at his best with an audience that already knows him, like in S.F. or London.
