Editorial Reviews

Eddie Izzard, the transvestite king of comedy, comes roaring back with all of his wry wit and absurd observations in one of his biggest shows ever. Performed in front of a sell-out crowd of over 44,000 over 4 nights at Wembley Stadium in London, Eddie never lets up the funny as he deals with the important issues ranging from Medusa's hair care, fighting sharks, dentistry, and the universal hatred of houseflies. Eddie's unique delivery keeps the audience in stitches even during his pauses, demonstrating again why he is one of the top comedians in the world. EDDIE IZZARD: LIVE FROM WEMBLEY features the master of comedy at the top of his game.

5.0 out of 5 stars EDDIE IZZARD IS AMAZING November 3, 2009
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD and I because I am an Eddie Izzard fan, I also have Sexie and this is a completely different set and a different venue. Any body who is a fan of Eddie will enjoy this immensely...as I did and it is incredible to see him perform on stage at a venue as iconic as WEMBLEY ARENA! I would recommend this to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another version of Sexie August 30, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm writing this two months before the release of the DVD and I'm posting this so people will have an idea as to what this is since its not clear.

This appears to be a version of Eddie Izzard's show Sexie from 2003 which was never released on DVD here in the US (This was taken at different performances of the show). This is probably a good thing since the region 2 DVD of Sexie seems to be Eddie on an off night

I saw the Sexie show a couple of times when it played live in the US and it really was a mixed bag. the first night I saw it I found it absolutely hysterically funny. The second night was less as good. The import DVD wasn't all that good. Much of the material performed has to do with Eddie's film career and when it works its very funny. I'm guessing that this is going to be worth picking up for any one who is a fan of Eddie's stand up because many of the bits are choice even if the show over all isn't great. Besides even allowing that this was recorded at a different series of shows than the original DVD, Eddie's shows are never the same, he's always changing bits, indeed even his recorded shows are never the same with the audio tape, CDs and video recordings of his early shows all being different.

(Thank you to Auntie Momo at Cake or Death for seconding my suspicions)

2.0 out of 5 stars No subtitles or CC December 5, 2009
Format:DVD
I love Eddie Izzard and I own all of his other DVD's. But, my husband is slightly hard of hearing and the sound of this production is not the best. Unlike all the other DVD's there are no subtitles or closed captions. It looks like they put a lot of money and effort into this production, why couldn't the spend the extra couple of $ to put subtitles on it? It makes very me angry at the production company and sad to not be able to enjoy the show.

Format:DVD
When Sexie came around in the U.S. I saw it live, and it was AMAZING. I laughed so hard for hours, and could have continued for more. When "Sexie" was released as a DVD in the UK, I purchased a copy. Yes, this DVD was funny, yet not as good as live, nor as good as this "Live from Wembley" copy. However, I'm extremely disappointed that they changed the name. I had no idea this was exactly what I already owned, and now since I've opened the package I cannot return it. I will say the quality is better, and his delivery is too in this edition. Eddie is a favorite of my household, and I love his work dearly. It is the marketing here that is wrong!

2.0 out of 5 stars Been there, seen that..... October 15, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought this just because my entire Eddie collection is still being shipped over to our new home and it was about the only one I hadn't already got.

Was somewhat disappointed to find that it is basically just another performance from the Sexie tour. One or two different bits as you always find watching Eddie on different nights but not really enough to justify this being released.

If you own Sexie on DVD, don't buy this. If you don't own Sexie, buy it as it's a better performance.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not a fav January 15, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are a die-hard Izzard fan, you'll probably want to see this and may even really like it. Of all the Izzard DVD performances, however (I've been a fan since long before Dressed to Kill), this is by far my least favorite. There are some funny bits, but the material just isn't fresh and the show is uneven, compared to previous shows. I have the Region 2 version of Sexie and this DVD. Not thrilled with either. I saw Stripped last year live. It was hilarious--brilliant. I'm looking forward to a Stripped DVD and the Stripped II live show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious--much better than some reviews suggest January 7, 2010
Format:DVD
I'm a longtime and big Izzard fan, but I was a bit worried I'd find the Wembley show disappointing after reading a fair number of mixed reviews here. I'm happy to report that Wembley's among the best DVDs he's released. I'd say a couple notches below "Dress to Kill" (what isn't?) and on par with "Glorious." To be more specific, I disagree with both of the main concerns people mentioned:

1) "Eddie seemed nervous at the start": didn't get that in the slightest... his opening few minutes (about his breasts) are among the funniest, and are certainly no more manic or free-associative than he normally is.

2) "The audience wasn't as into it": I think people are responding to the fact that, since it's a stadium show, the sound of the audience is bigger, but more diffuse and removed than a hemmed-in theater crowd. Once you get used to that sound difference, it's clear that they're every bit as on board as usual.

Buy the Wembley show without fear--it's hilarious.

1.0 out of 5 stars Eddie, how could you??!!! No captioning! December 20, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Man, Your previous DVDs, ESPECIALLY "Dressed To Kill" were among the most enjoyable DVDs ever watched, but this one, DID NOT COME WITH CAPTIONING!!!! (Closed captioning or otherwise!)

Being hearing-impaired, I have to give this a BIG FAT ZERO! I bought it, but now can't watch it. :(
