Customer Reviews

He's one of the absolute best physical comics I have ever seen.
M. Hind
It's futile to try to point out all the different funny bits from GLORIOUS because I pretty much laugh nonstop all the way through every time I watch it.
Jon E.
His style is such a refreshing contrast from his contemporaries.

I first saw Eddie Izzard while watching HBO one Saturday night. The concert was entitled "Dressed to Kill". I had never heard of Eddie before, and by the time it was over, I was wondering what rock I had been dwelling under to have never seen this brilliant comic.
"Glorious", while not quite as even as "Dressed", still left me in tears. The show begins with a Eddie's take on the book of Genesis, then travels on towards the Trojan horse ("Bye! Well done! Here's a horse for you..per usual..Bye!"), takes a hard left into the British Monarchy, shower water temperature and baboons in mime, before ending up in the book of Revelations. And, as a previous reviewer noted, the encore is probably the funniest 8 minutes of comedy I have seen in a long while.
I ordered this video last weekend, received it Friday and have watched it twice so far. It is well worth the money for the newer fan (like myself), and I'm sure that seasoned Izzard fans will love it even more.

What can I possibly say about Eddie Izzard that someone already hasn't said here? In my opinion, he is simply the funniest, cleverest, and the most amazing comedian that I know. It's a big shame that whoever distributes his videos here in the States does not see just how popular he has become and release other titles.
It's futile to try to point out all the different funny bits from GLORIOUS because I pretty much laugh nonstop all the way through every time I watch it. The Trojan Horse, the Lawn Mower, Small Airplane and Digestive Cookies, the Encore on computers (simply genius! )... Watching GLORIOUS is the best stress-buster that I've got going these days. If you're not a believer at first, try Eddie Izzard out, and you'll become a fanatic like I and so many others.
I can't wait for him to come back to the U.S. on a tour.

And, as a previous reviewer noted, the encore is probably the funniest 8 minutes of comedy I have seen in a long while.

I ordered this DVD last year, actually, way before they had an expected release date and was thrilled to receive it yesterday. I have the video, but the extras on the DVD make it well worth the purchase. Eddie's audio commentary on the show that he himself hasn't seen for seven years is priceless, "now, um...what AM I doing there? Oh yes... this is when I started saying Jam a heck of a lot". The "Lust For Glorious" intro is also featured, poking fun at the big summer blockbuster movie previews, and featuring Eddie in some very funny and very sexy situations. Another interesting feature is the english 'bleeped' audio track, which works very well when trying to share Eddie with one's Grandmother. (I know this from personal experience). Finally, there is a written triva commentary you can choose that displays below the subtitles. You can't say the man isn't giving his all! :)

Overall, I'd say Dress to Kill is the best and Glorious places a very close second in Eddie's stand-up comedy concert series. Both are must haves.

There is a reason Eddie Izzard won an Emmy or two for his HBO special "Dress to Kill": he's a bloody genius. He's one of the absolute best physical comics I have ever seen. His style jumps all over the place, throwing in wild references when you are least expecting them. And his James Mason impression is right on!
"Glorious" is an earlier effort preceding the gem referred to by reviewers as D2K. Some reviewers are saying it's not as good as D2K. I think this is an unfair evaluation. This special was geared toward his audience back home, and it is ripe with references from his early shows. American viewers might say, "Who is Mrs. Badcrumble?" for instance. There is also a language barrier with American and UK audiences, something he brilliantly points out, if you'll remember, in D2K. You might feel tempted to find a British person and ask them to open their verbal dictionary for you. But I promise you, once you figure out what things mean, you will find so much more humor in his stories.
Some people also find it strange that he is a transvestite. I will just say that in today's world, nothing should shock you anymore. In the future, I hope that Eddie is known for his unique performance style and not for his skirts. I wish Entertainment Tonight would not refer to him as, "cross-dressing comedian Eddie Izzard." It should be "sensational talent Eddie Izzard" instead.
My suggestion to you is to check out some of Eddie's earlier works if you get the chance. It's difficult to get videos of his early shows unless you live in England, but if you're serious about getting to know this fantastic comic, Amazon sells an import CD set of his shows "Unrepeatable" and "Definite Article" in their Popular Music section. I've had a listen to these and they are wonderful.
