Eddie Izzard is the quintessential comic genius. His off-color look at history and culture is the perfect comedy odd couple. How can you possibly make creationism, the Spanish Inquisition, religion, and mad cow disease funny? Well, he does and to the point that you often have to rewind to catch what you missed while laughing. Izzard's comedy is not typical -- although you can see a little Robin Williams, Monty Python, and even Dennis Miller in him, he is unique -- nobody has ever put such a comic face on history and current events and I include newer comics like Seinfeld and Chris Rock. As a huge fan of Williams, Miller, and "oldies" like Don Rickles, Bill Cosby, Steve Martin, and Richard Pryor, I can say that Izzard is equal to their talent and next to the best I've ever heard. If you are looking for a couple of hours just about sex and drugs, look for something else, although this CD and Izzard's others include those necessary comic themes but they are integrated perfectly into his routine...a recommendation is to get the DVD version and the CD -- you gotta see his facial expressions and of course, the drag get ups and you'll remember them both while listening to the CD.
