5.0 out of 5 stars Le singe est sur la branche! 6 April 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Well, as a pro-European, Eddie certainly hits the nail on the head with this gig. Filmed in San Fran (tee-hee!) the main bulk of the comedy comes from the differences between the US and Europe. The wide ranging subjects are all given the Izzard treatment, and what a treat it is to watch. I think his ideas and 'self-help' parts are what makes this gig worth watching, as it makes one appreciate just how intelligent Eddie is! The real gem comes with his verbiage on language (you say 'erbs, and we say Herbs...because there's a...), although it seems that the speil of French language (the funniest bit of Izzard in all his releases) loses the American audience somewhat! What a pity, they don't seem to have a clue! Let's look forward to his next video outing! The live show of 'Circle' was phenomenal!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cake or Death or This Video? This Video please! 10 Aug 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This Eddie Izzard video is truly fantastic. Although it does not even challenge Definite Article it still will have you in tears of laughter. It does make a some what slow start by Izzards standards but sketches such as Cake or Death make the show the outstanding piece of conmedy that it is. Other sketches such as the american way of filming and the way that Vader speals also help make this video and excellent choice for purchase. Izzard is god!, who just happens to be James Mason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Marvellous!! 17 Feb 2004
Format:DVD
I have seen most of Eddies work in the past. I own Circle, Sexie, Glorious and this one, and its quite easily the best!! As usual, Eddie starts out by taking the piss out of San Francisco, NOT "San Fran" or "Frisco"!! Cue the snakes!!! (You have to see the show to get that joke!) As usual, his audience quite obviously love him taking the micky out of their city!!
I think what attracts me to Eddies comedy, is his rambling style of presentation. While most comedians try to link one 'story' with another, with similar subjects and ideas, Eddie doesn't give a monkeys!! He will just go from one subject to another, quite often without warning! That in itself is hilarious, as the reaction of his audiance quite often shows.
Dress to Kill is a must purchase for any Eddie Izzard fan. If you have seen Circle or Sexie, and you thought they were good, you aint seen nuthin yet!
Eddie is quite simply THE best comedian this country has produced for a long time. He appeals to all audiances, British, American, French (coz they can be kinda French!). Brits love him, the Yanks love him, i love him! Sheer genious Eddie, keep it up!

If its not what he says, its the way he says it. The trials and tribulations of Eddie Izzard that kept me amused for hours, days, weeks, even years, along with pringles, really create, in my mind at least, the idea of heaven. You will adore his manorisms and he words himself beautifully, possibly, to the extent that you steal your wife/girlfriends/mums lipstick, put it all over your face, and in a vain attempt to be like the master of the stupid voice wear whatever feminine clothes you can find. There isn't even a possibility of prejudice against this man, hes a thinker and a bloody funny one at that, and this video has become a very good friend of mine. His ideas take away the stupid superficiality of the modern day world and allow you to recess into the womb. I know I havn't mentioned what happens, but you have to watch it, it will give you more than one reason to live. I love it, you will love it, I don't care what your beliefs, religion or sexuality is, this is a classic, bravo Ed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eddie Izzard in San Francisco 27 Jun 2003
By JOdy
Format:DVD
This is one great DVD of one great stand up show.
After viewing this DVD about 4 times in 2 months, it's one of those you can whatch and find funny every single time.
With sections you will turn into everyday jokes (we did) like "Cake or Death", a very funny section in French and alot of comparing American English and British English.
More political than I remember and the show can be resumed as a quick history lesson by Eddie Izzard, cause as he says to his american audience "I come from Europe.... you know, where history comes from"
As for the extra, it has a somewhat egocentric photographic album and a raw version of the same show played in French (In Paris), which if you understand any french it can be quite amusing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A natural funny man 20 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Eddie Izzard returns for the fifth time on video in an all new and absolutely brilliant show. His routine is packed full to the brim with historical and movie refferences. This is stand up at its best. Sometimes though you sometimes get the feeling the audience doesn't know whether to laugh or boo, especially when mentioning the National Rifle Association. An interesting video but never as good as Definite Article or even Glorious for that matter. All in all a genius lives in the body of a man wearing make up and high heels

Eddie Izzard is the king of comedy. In this video like all the others i have, i just could not stop laughing. Even the jokes that didn't make the audience laugh really loud, he makes a great comeback by pretendin to make notes saying "No one got that, Never do it again". He talks about San Francisco (Frisco), he talks about British Movies (What is it Sabastian, I'm arranging Matches). The list goes on, BUY this video if its the last thing you'll ever do. I promise you won't stop laughing

It's Izzard, its good. Get it and laugh from beginning to end [well except for the intro which I though to be unnecessary]
