This DVD is of a very early Eddie Izzard show done in Great Britain. If you're a huge fan of Izzard it's worth seeing once, just to see the roots of all his best stuff. I mean, this show has to be at the beginning of his career. All the elements are there, including the basic rough threads of what will become polished, roll in the aisle skits and routines. Wearing a big suit jacket over a slightly plump "baby Eddie", he barely hints at his later transvestite persona with some skinny black slacks. His timing is a bit off and his great ability to pause, go into "Stream of Consciousness" mode, then come roaring back isn't yet full on.
It is worth seeing once if you go back to the classic albums about once a year or more, as I do. I bought this DVD because it has a much later picture of Eddie on the cover. If I had known it was of this early, EARLY show, I wouldn't have bothered. Putting a picture of a much more mature Eddie Izzard on the cover of this show is nothing less than "A Bait And Switch" hustle. If you're nuts about Izzard, RENT IT, by all means. If you haven't savored the classics such as: GLORIOUS, DRESSED TO KILL, or DEFINITE ARTICLE, PLEASE don't let this be your first exposure. Any of these should leave you guffawing with a sore belly. Enjoy.
12/30/12 Addendum: Alright, alright! I too, am a huge fan. I'll bump my review to 3 stars. I just really got sore with the much more mature picture of Eddie on the cover. I still think it's a hustle. I just want the newbies to get solidly hooked, so they can view this show with an affectionate eye.
