Ever Ready Eddie!!By Kristian from Devon , 13 Oct 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Let me be honest, I'm a huge fan of Eddie Izzard but will try to be as unbiased as I can. This recording from the Albery Theatre in London, March 1994 shows he had not yet reached his peak as it was in Definite Article and Glorious, even so, he does still make you cry with laughter.
Turning the most basic things in life into brilliant pieces of comedy such as purring cats, dogs fetching sticks, even the psychology of shopping, he goes on to talk about life as a transvestite and Star Trek, also turning them into superlative comedic masterpieces.
This performance displays the gifted vivid imagery and stream of consciousness that is his trademark, part scripted, part improvised, the audience can't fail to appreciate it. More than this though, it gives you a glimpse of the more potent material that lay ahead.
Much better than his recent stuff; Sexie, Circle, even Dress to Kill which in parts felt more like a history lecture than a comedy show, this is truly top class comedy from the genious that is Eddie Izzard. If you're wondering what the fuss is all about watch this one, you won't be disappointed.
Not much else on the dvd in way of extras though which is a shame.

No likeyBy JHartley (3 reviews) , 19 Jan 2013I didn't realise it was an old dvd. Much prefer his upto date stuff. Was very disappointed. He's improved heaps since then.
Not as good as normalBy Mytrme (41 reviews) , 11 Oct 2011Didn't find this show as good as I normally would rate Ed Izz. Good in many parts but overall faintly disappointing.
eddie is nearly always perfectBy rabbit1969 (42 reviews) from Cambridge, England , 04 Jan 2010but you can spoll him by watching too much. He is not as slick as usual here, not as relaxed and naturally funny. He is always witty and original, but can over do the pauses and repetition and wandering off the point
Eddie Izzard UnrepeatableBy a customer from Bury St. Edmunds , 20 Jul 2009I love Eddie Izzard as a stand up comedian. I saw Unrepeatable years ago - in fact it was my first introduction of his work. I thought it was hilarious then and I thought it was hilarious this time round. As with Lee Evans he can make the things of everyday life so funny and the viewer can always relate. Real laugh out loud stuff.
I am going to buy this on DVD because I know that I want to watch it again and will do for many years to come. Eddie Rocks!
watch this, its funnyBy bez150 (3 reviews) from Leyland , 30 Jun 2009If your after some 90's comedy nostalgia then this is the show for you. Eddie Izzard takes you into a very inventive comedy world. If your looking for some Izzard stand-up this is a great place to start.
