From the PR...
At last, fans are able to repeat ‘UNREPEATABLE’ (recorded at the Albery Theatre) and relive EDDIE’S ponderings on the important cultural issues of March 1994, when, important topics such as, if Bees Make honey do earwigs make chutney? ‘Aqua Zimmer Frames’ and ‘New Improved Dyslexia’ were the hot questions of the moment.
So take a breath for air and then watch ‘DEFINITE ARTICLE’, recorded at The Shaftesbury Theatre two years later in 1996. (Extra’s include the previously unreleased 50 minute documentary, ‘JE SUIS A STAND-UP’ ) This time the themes took a serious turn and topics in the spotlight extended from hairnets to dog food, Einstein to Pavlov and ‘The Big Bang Salmon’.1996 also marked the debut of EDDIE’S infamous ‘JAMES MASON impression.
JAMES MASON guest appeared again the following year in ‘GLORIOUS’. This DVD was recorded at The Hammersmith Odeon during a four-week sell-out London run. (Extras include ‘LUST FOR GLORIOUS’ a 30 minute documentary). The GLORIOUS tour that followed culminated with a one-off grand finale at The London Arena where EDDIE played to 8,000 people making it the largest comedy event ever staged in the UK at that time. (IZZARD later took ‘GLORIOUS’ to France where he performed to the French in French).
Watch and weep at the classic ramblings of this surreal madman/genius. Who could forget ‘Death by Chocolate’ ‘My name is Tracey’, ‘Mystic Hopscotch’ ‘Hell in a shower’ and ‘Noah on Speed.
All three will be available separately or packaged together with Izzard's Dress To Kill as part of a special boxset collection available for a limited period.
