In Dress to Kill, Izzard reflects on his birth in Yemen and his childhood in Northern Ireland, Wales and London and muses on animals, male tomboys, street theatre, sex, crime, God, The Great Escape, Bible stories starring Sean Connery and James Mason and cats who dig for oil. He also reflects on the trials and tribulations on being a cross-dressing surrealist comedian intent on making it in America. Recorded in San Francisco in 1998.
Live comedy with the master of sublime weirdness, no-one but madcap stand-up comedian Eddie Izzard can spin comic gold out of papal history, monkeys with guns, Jesus preaching to the dinosaurs and cafeteria food on the Death Star. Recorded in New York, 26 June 1000 and includes a 30 minute behind the scenes documentary about Eddies US tour.
Through Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, Ireland and the UK, this tour was performed to more people than there are in Iceland (280,000). Filmed in Eastbourne in 2003, where his grandfather and father were born and where he went to school, this show is the funniest live show that could ever be performed by a warm blooded animal.
