Get a copy of his HBO comedy special "Dressed to Kill". I've seen it at least 10 times and I laugh my ass off every time. Hilarious guy.

You are correct, LaZy and docbungle. Eddie is hilarious.

The dvd is entitled "Eddie Izzard: Dress to Kill", btw.

I love Dress to Kill, actually I just love any sort of comedy from Eddie Izzard. Two of my friends went to see him. I can't wait until they get back so they can tell me all about it.

I just stumbled across "Dress to Kill" one night on HBO and laughed til I cried. He is an extremely funny man. Anyone who can segue from the Holy Trinity to Scooby-doo flawlessly like he does deserves much more credit than he gets.

He is the first comedian I have seen in years that has that "Monty Python" type sense of humor. Hard to explain, but you could definitely see him on that show had he been born 20 years earlier.

He was actually on a reunion that MP had. It was hysterical watching him trying to pretend he was a part of the cast, then watching the rest of the guys run him off stage. And "Dressed to Kill" was extremely funny.

When I was living in Europe I used to watch Eddie Izzard for years. He is a great comedian with an amazingly quick wit.

Any brits remember seeing him on 'Have I got News for You'?

He was brilliant

Absolutely love him! I've been trying to find Glorius for a while, with no luck. I'm hoping they re-release it soon. Doesn't he have a new DVD coming out this month?

He's so great because he's just like a kid playing with words and ideas. You can always tell when he's trying to think of his next bit because he says "so, yea...." and in his France act he says "sooo.... wi." (or however you spell the french version of yes)

I thought it was brillant that he did an encore
with a whole routine again in French.

And even if you didn't know French, you knew what he was saying,
just by him going through the same motions and inflections.

I love his facial expressions while he talks. Seeing him rather than just hearing him brings up the comedy at least 20%

I just saw Eddie Izzard's show Sexie! It was hilarious! He was at the Wiltern in Hollywood. It was mine and my wifes anniversary gifts to eachother. He or..should I say...She.....nah...He....is a comedic genius. Dressed to Kill is amazing. I totally recommend anyone to get it. Can't wait for Sexie to come out on DVD so I can get it and see it again!

ps..... he has tits now! WooHoo!

Gotta' love that Eddie!

He's in the top 3 of my favorite comedians to watch (#1: George Carlin - sorry, but there's a reason why he's had more HBO comedy specials - not to mention hosted the first episode of Saturday Night Live and the first HBO Special Presentation - than anyone else ever....#2: Robin Williams. His Live on Broadway is one of the funniest things I've watched in years!....and then #3: Eddie Izzard. Can't say enough great things about that one, so I won't. Wouldn't do the bloke justice, if you ask me).

I'll have to keep an eye open for him to play within 500 miles of me (that's 800km for you metrically-inclined TFP'ers) and I'll be there. Yep, Eddie anywhere near me, and Carlin in Vegas....those two are what's left on my current Comedy To-Do List.

My favorite parts were probably when he was telling everyone about their history and he was like "You have no idea what I'm talking about do you?" then the other part about Englebert Humperdink or however you spell it where he kept saying he wasn't dead but then saying he was.

No...Mature ejaculation...Veteran ejaculation....Wise olded man ejaculation!

Too many funny parts to list em all. The thing was hilarious from begining to end.
