My sisters opinion was that he looked like he was on something or that he was just getting too complacent, whatever the reason for the standard of this DVD I'm going to wait for some good reviews of the next before I rush out and buy it.
Sorry Eddie but I was seriously dissapointed, I'm going to put on Dressed to Kill now and remember what it was that made me think Pre-Ordering was a good idea.
As people have said in other reviews, this routine revolves around a brief history of the world, taking in religion, The Romans and the Moon landings along the way. Unfortunately it seems he's taken to recycling old material - jokes about learning latin,
Izzard bumbles along, and his comedy just seems dated. Copious mentions of chickens, legs, and Izzard pretending to loose his way whilst "improvising" and then he somehow claws his way back with a "Soooo yeah", .................
Eddie's back.....but he is not that funny.
Too many ad-libs which don't work and too many times when he's not being very funny but doesn't seem to know when to stop. I found myself longing for the entertaining `St. Paul's letters to the Corinthians', or `lunchtime in the Death Star'-. its quite amusing to watch Eddie Izzard perform, and do his Python impersonations, the bottom line is that just isn't good enough.
The material isn't strong. The set isn't funny enough, the references are uninspired (the impossibility of Noah's Ark) and too often falls back on catchphrases ('action transvestite', 'moo').
Regarding this dvd - you know people who love to have coffee table books around, or Marxist dialectical imperative pamphlets lying around that they pretend to read? Or Jean Luc Godard films that they pretend to understand? Well this my friends is the Comedy equivalent. Think Antonioni but without Monica Vitti and Alain Delon. And this dvd was comedy boredom.
The gig was just the funniest night of my laugh, Eddie was on top form and his humour was just as quick, perceptive, self-deprocating and funny as it always has been. The Telewest Arena was rocking, thousands of people were just about crying with laughter.
Then I got the DVD. Oh dear. Was it the same show? Well the material was the same, if a little less well developed, but the cutting edge and the laughs were missing. And the audience!! Were they all dead? I know Eastbourne has a reputation for being a retirement town, but did they really sell tickets just to the over 80's?!
I'm not someone who thinks that this serves him right for rushing to get the DVD out in time for Christmas, but in hindsight, it would have been much better to record a show towards the end of the tour, and perhaps one with a larger more lively (should that be alive) audience. In future maybe there will be cameras at a few of the gigs, so that Eddie can release a DVD that does him justice.
Eddie, I love you and think you're fab, but the video isn't all its cracked up to be. I heard on good authority that there were many factors which may have contributed to the Eastbourne performance, and that others were far superior. In that case one must wonder at the label releasing this performance instead of one of the American shows? Is it because the previous video (Circle) was in San Fransisco and they needed a British one? Perhaps we'll never know, but in summary Eddie isn't up to his sparkling, witty, hair-brained self. But don't be down-heartened, one video doesn't detract from his overall brilliance and comedy genius - keep it coming!!! xxx

Rather unfunny and he appears to be taking the dressing up over the top, to the extent that it actually detracts from his comedy.Read more
