Item Details

Eddie Izzard spins free-flowing jokes about San Francisco, transvestitism, squirrels, American optimism, Hitler, the British royal family, mass murder and Stonehenge. Izzard romps through human history and transforms surprisingly complex ideas into biting satire--as well as knockout bits of sublime frivolity, like describing the movie Speed entirely in French. His mercurial patter is sprinkled with four-letter words, but his twinkling glances make this more mischievous than crude.

Funny, as predicted. I've seen it before, but that sort of high-level intellect and information-based humour is always good for a brain tune-up. Not his best, but one of his misses is better than 80% of anyone's greatest achievements.

This is the one with "Flags"; Darth Vader would be a different fellah if he sounded like he was from King's Cross; "Cake or Death?"; and the connotations surrounding the question "Would you like a cup of coffee?" if asked by the President of Burundi (spoken both in French and English).
