"Life, the universe, and...everything. Here's what the critics are saying about Eddie's tour: Eddie makes us believe we can surf World 2.0 instead of just being swallowed up by it. As search engines go, he makes us feel lucky. - Los Angeles Times Izzard is a force with which to be reckoned. His rise is fundamentally cheering, not least because his material is rich, savvy and, at its best, ...

Some very funny new material among some old material
Verified purchase
Izzard is one of my all-time favorite comedians. I can count on laughing out loud many times at any show I watch. Madison Square Garden is no different. With no distractions--the stage is simple and there's no flamboyant dressing or heavy makeup--this is Eddie Izzard straight up.

If you're not familiar with his comedy, it's free of racial profiling, angry rants, and teenage boy humor, and is (with the exception of a liberal sprinkling of the f word) pretty much G-rated. He riffs on a lot of historical information that he gleans "from Wikipedia." And he's added a few more religious/scientific pieces that debunk a few bible stories. His humor is witty, ironic, insightful, and, well, often just brilliant.

If you are familiar with his comedy (I've seen every show) you'll be familiar with several bits that have been retooled, including Noah and the Ark, and silent giraffes, but there's plenty of new material to keep you surprised and laughing.

And when you're done with Madison Square Garden, make sure to move on to "Glorious," "The Definite Article," or "Dress to Kill" if you haven't already seen them. You'll feel happy, uplifted, and tired out from laughing so hard!

I haven't enjoyed a comedian's brain this much since Robin Williams! Looking forward to his next show, whenever that may be.

Eddie is the thinking person's comic. Funniest man in the world!

Eddie Izzard is the world's funniest stand-up comic because he's super intelligent and just a naturally funny man. He has that Brit wit, always. It's who he is. It's a way of seeing the world that you either have or you don't have. it can't be acquired. He's the thinking person's comic. I always laugh from beginning to end and that's rare with other comics. I think most American humor is satire not comedy, and when I'm watching I think "oh yes that's funny" but it doesn't make me laugh.

Not nearly as engrossingly hilarious as his earlier shows. I read a review of his very recent show at the Hollywood Bowl, and it included some brilliant observations that were not included in the New York show. He should have waited and had a show late in the tour recorded, instead of one of the first performances of the tour. also, the video had some truly weird camera angles, including a frequent shot focusing on a giant video screen with a giant image of Eddie, behind Eddie, with a tiny "live" Eddie seen standing in front of it.

<3 Eddie Izzard!
Verified purchase
I saw this tour live, and I wasn't disappointed with the Madison Square Garden recording of it. It's not quite as laugh-out-loud funny as some of his older, sillier routines, but it gets funnier with every watching.

The subtitles on this are very well done, which is important for someone who's hearing impaired. I sometimes miss parts of his jokes as he does mumble, and so well-done subtitles are important.

If you are a fan of Eddie Izzard, you need to add this one to your collection. He is so funny and smart - very witty. All of his shows are very good and they keep getting better and better as the years go by. This show is entertaining.

I laugh so hard at all Eddie Izzards' comedy and watch anything he's in. Wish he was out more, he's hard to find.

Eddie is our family's favorite and has been for years. We love his stand up and watch him over and over again. His irreverent point of view may offend some but some of his lines have become our family's memes.
