5.0 out of 5 stars The best piece of stand up comedy... ever!, 13 Aug 2004
In this video Eddie Izzard produces the best piece of stand up comedy i have ever seen. The tape flows wonderfully from hilarious sketch to hilarious sketch. This video contains in my opinion his best sketch of all the time, the James Bond sketch. The sketch itself made me laugh so much i could hardly breathe. Izzards sketches are mostly based around the history of Europe and the way he does this, takes quite serious events from the past and turns them into pieces of comedy is quite magic. If you are looking for an Eddie Izzard video this is the one. Although most of his work is better than any other comedians none of his other videos even come close to touching this. Fantastic, Magnificent, Brilliant are a few of the words that can be used to describe Definite Article and Eddie Izzard himself. I would definetely reccomend this video to anyone with a love for real comedy at its best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cameron Diaz!!!!!!!!!!!, 13 Aug 2004
Not usually my type of film but i saw it very cheap and saw it as a good purchase as a family type of film. On watching it my opinion changed as i relised the comedy used in the film. The film itself though for myself turned out to be a good laugh and enjoyable. A bit of an unbelievable and typical chick flick type of film but entertaining for the most part. 3 stars for the film itself and an extra 1 just for Cameron Diaz who has to be one of the sexiest women in the world. A good film and worth buying at its low price.

5.0 out of 5 stars What times it over there?, 13 Aug 2004
This video is truly hilarious. Peter Kay will have you in fits from start to end. He has the tremendous ability of taking the normal things in life and turning them in to some of the funniest thing you have ever heard. It is clear to see Peter Kay is a genuinely funny guy and the way he interacts with the crowd takes away any signs of nerves he may have had and make his set all more confident. Comedy at its best.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so good, 13 Aug 2004
Lee Evans i admit is a very funny guy but this video is not so funny. Somethings will make you laugh but never in fits. You find yourself grunting more than laughing. He never really gets going its as if every gag he is doing is introductury so when the show is coming to an end you feel like it is just starting. Although most of the set is below average he ends hilariously with his Bohemian Rhapsody sketch, very funny but not award winning. Lee Evans is very funny even if not one of my favuorites but if he is one of yours i suggest you try other videos, this one is not so good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilli..... crap i've left the oven on!, 11 Aug 2004
I am a huge fan of Eddie Izzard and had seen all his work except Sexie before i had seen this one so had very high expectations and this video does not fail to dissapoint. Although the video does show he has not yet reached his form from Dress to Kill and Definite Article when this was recorded it does still make you cry with laughter. He turns the simple things of life into brilliant pieces of comedy such as cats purring and dogs fetching sticks. He also goes on to talk about events from the past and Star Trek and also turns them in to brilliant pieces of comedy. This video has the sketches, the flow and the audience to appreciate it but it also showed the potential he had and must of made you think he'll get even funnier, which inevitablly he did. Top class comedy from the genious that is Eddie Izzard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glorious sketchs yes, but lack of flow., 11 Aug 2004
This Eddie Izzard video is very much publicised as is best but in my opinion is his worst although i havent yet seen sexie. It doesnt even go close to matching Definite Article but would is still a performance any other comedian would see as there best. The sketches themself are very funny indeed as he talks about boxers with high voices, toasters & showers & plane rides he has been on. These sketchs will have you crying with laughter but the video itself does not have any real flow which is what makes Definite Article and Dress to Kill so funny. This video is still pure genious but i would reccomend Unrepeatable, Definite Article, Dress to Kill and Circle ahead of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cake or Death or This Video? This Video please!, 10 Aug 2004
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 Brilliant but not his best., 10 Aug 2004
I loved this video but cannot tell whether it was that good or if my love for eddie izzards comedy carried it. The show starts wonderfully as he questions the music played at baseball games. This had my crying with laughter. Then comes the problem with the show, the middle just seems to be about absolutely nothing, as much as Eddie claims most of his show is planned this video at most parts seems very much just off the top of his head. When the poor middle is over he does then go off with a bang! His sketch on the death star and Vadar of star wars is just brilliant. There is no real intelligence behind it which is what Eddie Izzard is normally so good at but similar to my favourite sketch of his the James Bond sketch something about his actions make you cry with laughter. Not his best, his best is Definite Article, but still hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars His best!, 10 Aug 2004
This is by far the best Eddie Izzard tape there is. The funniest comedian on the planet will make you laugh so much that it hurts. From Mr Dog, to queueing in the middle of the night for groceries and bread guns to James Bond and his amazing appliances Eddie Izzard searches deep in to history and takes true epic stories and turns them in to comedy. This man is pure genious and this by far is his best tape.
