Eddie is a comic genius. In this dvd he takes you through from the beginning of time, through the Book of Revelations, right back to present day. Highlights have to include the Evil Giraffe, The Grim Reaper trying to get more up-to-date, James Mason as God, Sean Connery as Noah, and my personal favourite with the beekeeper, “And he said, Aaaagh I’m covered in bees!”

This dvd can be watched many times over, and really it just gets better with each viewing. It is Eddie’s over the top observational routine that set him apart from the rest…well, that and watching him tottering around in high heels and a shiny Jean Paul Gaultier suit! Simple stuff, yet highly effective and universally accessible.

However, there is an extra bonus with the dvd. ‘Lust For Glorious’, a spoof promotional piece supposed to be helping him ‘break’ the American market. This is where Eddie is told he has been born in France, or that is what his audience in America must believe. Following this announcement, the viewer gets taken on a tour of a small French village with Eddie making up stories of his childhood, which seem to include an awful lot of getting his head stuck in things! And then there is the sex, and rock and roll behaviour to follow….

Overall, this dvd is extremely watchable, on your own, or with friends. It will make you laugh a lot, so prepare for a good belly workout from this one.

Conclusion Rating
The first thing you have to say about Eddie Izzard is he is the one of the funniest stand-ups around.
5 stars
Eddie looks great and everything clicks on this one. He has you hooked from his opening faux stentorian greeting
