Because who doesn’t like Eddie Izzard?

That’s a rhetorical question by the way, so quiet, you. Zip it!

The following makes a good drinking game: one swallow from a goblet of consecrated wine whenever you hear (or think you hear) about the Pope, a shot of bad gin for each time one of the Henry VIII’s wives is mentioned (you’ll have to pour all of these beforehand), and chug an irish coffee with a cigarette butt in it when he says “Mormon” (or virgin jello shots laced with shredded carrots, if you prefer).


  1. Eddie Izzard makes me deeply happy. πŸ™‚

    You should also see his segment (in “Circle,” I think) where Jesus comes down to witness to the dinosaurs.

  2. Eddie Izzard is fluent in at least three languages and my favorite part (besides the Pope’s “Ciao”) is the grammatically correct Martin Luther in French, Italian, and German:

    Ein Minuten, bitte! Ich habe einen kleinen problemo avec diese religione.

    I also like the singing: “joyfully we lark about”, ahahaha! (And the list of religions…oh, who am I kidding, I just love all of Eddie Izzard πŸ™‚

    On one of the DVDs, he does his routine in French in France (and includes a clip of it). It’s quite funny, but the French don’t seem to be laughing, which makes it a little funnier.

  3. John

    Cobwebs, thanks for the reference, though it did lead to probably an hour or two lost to watching various performances!

    xJane, I thought of you as I was writing up this post. πŸ™‚

  4. I have such a “thing” for transvestites. Perhaps because Rocky Horror was a major part of my sexual awakening. I think it’s sexy, even when it’s really, reeeeally bad (as it usually is). Thanks for sharing.
