Eddie Izzard Force Majeure
I truly believe there was a time in Eddie Izzard's life when someone told him to stop talking nonsense and he decided to do the complete opposite. If you've ever watched a clip on YouTube, seen one of his performances on DVD, or been lucky enough to see him live then you will know that this action transvestite has literally become famous by talking nonsense. I mean this in the best of ways; it's funny nonsense don't get me wrong (I think my sides may still be recovering), but when chickens of the 17th century have robotic legs and God is using an ipad, well then you know you're in a world that only Eddie can create.
Eddie took his most well-known skits and elaborated upon them, as though he were telling us the rest of the story we hadn't yet heard. For those of us in the audience who are die-hard Eddie Izzard fans and who have watched the Death Star Canteen more times than we care to mention, it was like being taken on a journey with Eddie himself, as though we got to see the next chapter.
Even those who may have been dragged along, or weren't huge fans, would have enjoyed his quick wit, chaotic logic, and retelling of history. Spoiler alert, but at one point God was battling Darth Vader.
I applaud GrandWest on another excellent night in their beautiful venue, where they never seem to disappoint.... Read the full, comprehensive news article and discuss at BizCommunity
