Movie Reviews

Comic genius

"I stumbled over this strange transvestite comedian several years ago, I believe during a Comic Relief program. I didn't really remember him, but slowly he started popping up everywhere on cable, including a (staged) crashing of Monty Python's induction at the Apsen Comdey Festival.Then one night, I caught his HBO special, "Dressed to Kill," and laughed so hard it hurt. Eddie has an amazing skill of blending history, religion and his own personal experiences into a hillarious two-hour stream-of-consciousness. I have watched the special several times (I got smart enough to tape it) and each time I catch a new joke or bit that I missed last time. He is one of the funniest stand up comics I've ever seen and his observations are always dead on. I especially liked his observations on Hitler, and how we'll tolerate dictators who kill their own people; it's only after they start killing people in other countries that we object.If you haven't seen the phenomenon that is Eddie Izzard, then get either a copy of this special or "Glorious," the only other Eddie Izzard special on video. And be prepared to laugh. A lot."

"Jeezee Chreezee...I initially passed on the HBO special, as the thought of a "Transvestite Comedian" didn't interest me. However, now that I know he's an "Executive Transvestite" who fancies girls, everything is better.Eddie's humor is NOT for the hard of thinking, nor for those who flunked world history..."Hitler wound up in a ditch, covered in petrol, on fire...and it was his wedding night as well! Double trouble!" His brilliant style of mixing humor with incredible body language makes him a treat to watch. His manipulation of the audience is brilliant, and the fact that he even laughs at the crowds reactions to things makes him even funnier!I have loaned my copy of DTK out to so many people, that the tape is almost worn out. However, I have converted everyone who's seen it into immediate fans. We as a group went to the "Circle" show in Seattle, and were incredibly entertained by his blend of history and humor. Dress to Kill is a must, and will certainly convert even the most apprehensive viewer. He sets up the last 20 minutes of his show, which is performed mostly in French, so you have to pay attention...and make sure you have something to wipe your eyes with, because it's hysterical! "Le Sange et sur la branche"Please make sure you let Amazon know you'd like this available in the States. I want all his work available on DVD sometime this millenium!"

"It's hard to describe Eddie Izzard to people who've never seen him before. I was flipping channels once and came across an English transvestite (excuse me, "executive transvestite") doing a comedy routine in Alcatraz prison. I stopped flipping channels, and, for the next two hours, almost died laughing. Izzard's humor is unique and it works on many levels. A lot of comedians target a particular demographic. Their humor can be too trite or too low-brow or too high-brow for some. Not Eddie. On the one hand, he's clearly intelligent and educated and his comedy contains much that will tickle even the most intellectual of viewers. But he combines this with good old-fashioned silliness and dead-on impressions that he will have the most slack-jawed luddite in stitches.Even as I type this, I'm laughing to myself thinking about several of his routines ("Cake or death?") and will probably go home and watch it again. And that's the reason why I recommend the DVD. A lot of standup humor is funny the first time, but loses its edge. Eddie's improves. I laughed *more* the second time I saw it.Buy it. You'll love it. I can't wait until his next performance."

"Watch Dress to Kill and you'll know what the title for my review meansThere are actually 5 Eddie Izzard stand up concerts out on the old video cassettes (in UK). Dress To Kill, his San Francisco gig, is the only one available on DVD so far. This openly transvestite man is arguably the best British stand up comic today. His material is very Monty Python-ish. If you like the Pythons, you'll like Eddie. If you don't like the Pythons, try Eddie anyway. You'll end up with stomach cramps from all the laughing. I did.By the way, the 5 videos of his concerts are: Live at the Ambassador's, Unrepeatable, Definite Article, Glorious and Dress to Kill. They're all great. I hope they all come out in DVD soon."
