So I noticed that people here seem to like his work.

If you don't know who he is then go get one of his DVD's

I have a bunch of his work on video

including:

Circle
Definite Article
Dress To Kill
Unrepeatable
Glorious.

So what jokes does everyone think are the funniest?!? Which is your favourite show?!? Which shows do you own?!? Why do you like Eddie Izzard?!?

Good times :-)

The squirrel bit is my favorite.  I have Circle and DTK.  I want to get the others.  My aunt and uncle met him once (I think they were introduced by a mutual friend), and then felt obligated to get one of his shows, and they also found him really funny in person.  I don't know if they've watched it yet.  I need to get on them about that.

The bit he does about monkeys and the National Riffle Association on Circle is probably my favorite.  "Guns don't kill people, people kill people, and monkeys do too, if they have guns!"

Dressed to kill gets my vote.  He's just a funny guy regaurdless of the evening gown he has on at the moment.

Britain took over the world through the cunning use of flags.


"We claim this land, India, in the name of Great Britain!"  *plants flag*

"Hey, you can't do that.  We live here, it's our country."

"Well... do you have a flag?"

"I... I guess we don't."

"NO FLAG, NO COUNTRY!  Those are the rules that.. I just made up."

Eddie Izzard is awesome. I actually caught one of his HBO specials one night, and have since seen Dressed to Kill, and a bit of Glorious. Once i get the chance, I'm buying all of his dvds.

got a four dvd boxset with all the shows above except circle.

Have seen him live too on the sexie tour, and seriously if the intermission hadn't have came when it did I would have had to leave the theatre or I would have died laughing.

As for fave bit... at the moment it's the "covered in bees" shetch, although I'll probably think of something else in a minute, start laughing to myself then get thrown out of this library before I get a chance to post about it!

You're scared of mice and spiders, but oh-so-much greater is your fear that one day the two species will cross-breed to form an all-powerful race of mice-spiders who will immobilize human beings in giant webs in order to steal cheese.

Live At The Ambassadors is my favourite closely followed by Circle. In circle when he is talking about the best laid plans of mice and men,it's hysterical.

Favorite bit would have to be the whole trojan war bit on Glorious.  It's just SO FUNNY!

**Eddie commenting on the large number of British actors on the Death Star**

"What is it, Lieutenant Sebastian?"

"It's just... the Rebels sir... they're here."

"My God, man!  Do they want tea?"

"I think they're after something more than that, sir.  I don't know what it is, but they've brought a flag."

"Damn!  That's dash cunning of them!"

I would say Dressed to Kill is my favorite of those I've seen. (I've only seen Definite Article, Unrepeatable, Glorious, and Live At the Ambassdor's)

Since he starts off with the San Francisco bit in Dressed to Kill I usually introduce people to him with Glorious because it picks up the pace a bit faster.

Seeing how people enjoy Eddie Izzard here, I assume there's also a bit Mitch Hedburg fanbase too.

i would definatley have to say if you have never seen him before the best one of his stand ups to watch first is dressed to kill....it's just got something in there for everyone....but some of my favorites are the bit about thimbles and needle death, of course the "ello sue, i've got legs" part, the part where he always says "Hanging gardens of babylon", the splashy splashy/sharky sharky bit...and those are just the ones off the top of my head.. and i'm in class...if i were at home and had more time i'd put all my favorites....which i just might later....but yes he is my FAVORITE stand up comedian!!!

Dressed to Kill was just randomly on basic cable.  No matter how many times I watch it, I always get sucked back into it.  Something about Eddie is hypnotic.  I wish he was still doing awesome HBO specials instead of terrible movies.

My favorite Eddie Izzard joke should be obvious.
