Live from Wembley is a pinnacle performance by the British "Executive Transvestite" comedian Eddie Izzard from his Sexie tour. Unlike the eponymous release, Live from Wembley features Eddie on form and the audience in the palm of his hand.
Eddie's performance is wonderfully energetic and imaginative. Unlike the performance of Circle - which had brilliant material but Eddie was a bit too self-conscious that night - Live from Wembley features Eddie with a great stage presence and swagger. The material is wonderfully diverse, and Eddie's pantomime and train of thought is hilarious and a riot to follow. Eddie covers everything from Neanderthals to Medusa's hairdresser, from sharks to disco flies, and back again.
This is Eddie at his best. Stripped is a more average show with lesser delivery (although Live from Madison Square Garden is to that tour what Live from Wembley is to Sexie). While not on par with Definite Article, Glorious or Dress to Kill, Live from Wembley is a riot of a time that had me in fits of (almost quite literally) non-stop laughter. The hour-and-a-half you invest in it flies by, and you better try your best to keep up with Eddie.
