Reviews

Brimming with surreal humour and disarming candour * Evening Star *
King of the Universe . . . Comic genius . . . Entertainment incarnate * Telegraph *
Izzard is Wikipedia in heels. He's made his career out of hilarious, dizzying, surreal routines held up by their own daft logic . . . A force of nature * Radio Times *
Sheer Comic Genius. His humour reflects the scattershot lunacy of Monty Python, but with a sophisticated silliness that is entirely his own. He is the most brilliant stand-up comedian of his generation * New York Times *
A comedy gem * Guardian *
Izzard has a knack for reducing centuries' worth of history to just a few exquisite words (the Romans were just 'fascist plumbers', for example) * Time Out *
The funniest man in England * John Cleese *
The funniest man in, well, pretty much all of the known universe * Los Angeles Times *
Izzard is fleet of foot - even in Cuban heels * Independent *
Had the Pythons stuck it out, they'd certainly be doing Izzard-like gags * Chicago Tribune *
A consistent intelligence underpins Izzard's whimsy * Chortle *
True Izzardians are every bit as committed in their fandom as Star Trek or Dr Who fans * Guardian *
Eddie Izzard is my favorite stand-up chameleon -- Eric Idle
I had never heard of Eddie Izzard before, but judging by this delightful memoir, he has a glittering career ahead of him. I particularly enjoyed his descriptions of working in a Vatican slaughterhouse, acting as Deputy Foreign Minister in Gladstone's first administration, his whacky exploits at his uncle's Taxidermy Cafe, and his tragic death at the age of only eight at the Morris Dancing Finals in Bruges -- John Cleese
