Editorial Reviews

"Unrepeatable" was recorded at the Albery Theatre in March of 1994 for a limited sold-out engagement of seven weeks, where he played to 34,000 fans. He won rave reviews all around. According to the UK national daily The Independent: "If all the awards and nominations have gone to his head, Izzard's performance does not show it. When he pulls up in mid-flow there is the same sense you get with Robin Williams sometimes, of the audience racing to catch up with a mind that moves too quickly for them." Subjects comprised in this one-man show include: "New Improved Dyslexia," "Bizarre Wash," "Secret Magicians," "Dopey Politicians," "Jumpy Spiders," "Men In Dresses," "God's Creatures," "Aqua Zimmer Frame," "Horror Movies," "Star Trek" and "Do Earwigs Make Chutney?" EXTRAS: Audio commentary/Trivia track/Subtitled in French, German, Spanish, Norwegian, Swedish, Dutch, Italian, Danish/Photo gallery/Bleeped audio track.

Personally, i don't think Eddie Izzard is better than he is in Dressed to Kill. However, for fans of Eddie, this is a very solid performance. It was done in 1994, but none of the material is dated as he focuses more on universal things (like Star Trek) than on topical things.

The audio sounds a bit tinny, as if they were recording from the speakers (the audio on later performances is much better).

That aside, being that its an older show, you might not have heard some of these jokes. You also get to have a look at how Mr. Izzard's shtick has developed, though it was very funny even then.

This is right up there with "Dressed to Kill". It is a great addition to any Eddie Izzard library. Yes, the sound is not that great, but well worth the purchase. I have watched this one over and over again, it is that funny. The man is so quick with his wit and so intelligent that together he would be hard to go up against in a conversation of any subject. He has an amazing mind. He is definitely one of the best!

Those familiar with Eddie Izzard's relaxed, stream-of-consciousness style will find this performance enjoyable. Newcomers will take a few moments to adjust to it though, as Izzard's English material (a line about Devon gets a big laugh) and transvestitism may throw them a bit.

This is a 1994 show, and even then, Izzard's "Star Trek" material must have been dated. But the man is so affable, by the time he's talking about different settings for phasers, you're chuckling in spite of yourself. Other bits are even more far-fetched: If bees make honey, why don't earwhigs make chutney? Good stuff.

HOT TIP: Izzard has a tendency to mumble, and some of his best lines are barely audible asides, so turn the subtitles "on."

I've tried to explain Eddie Izzard to people who haven't seen him, and there's just no way you can capture that particular mix of smarts, physical humor, and witty junctures, while mixing in his image as an out transvestite. What an original. It's no wonder he is huge with his fans.

I've seen later shows and probably laughed louder, but this West End performance from earlier in his career, 1994, does not disappoint. Made from a single performance (rather than assembled from the best parts of several), there are moments that don't quite work, but given Izzard's style of delivery, these are even comic and you wouldn't want to miss them.

Often compared to the brilliance of Robin Williams, Izzard is all himself and nobody else. This particular DVD actually has a commentary of Izzard talking about his own performance (recorded about 10 years later) and a silly "trivia commentary" with odd facts about the subject matter he is discussing, e.g., that in Holland it is illegal to shop in a grocery store without a cart? (That can't be true. . .)

I admit, the audio on this DvD is of low quality, but if all you are doing is watching it there shoulden't be a problem hearing what Izzard is saying. Before I saw this I would have said that Dressed to Kill or Glorious was the mans best show but this one takes that cake. The dog fetching the stick part had me laughing so hard my step-father came in my room to ask if I was ok, and I have never had him do that before over anything. If possible I would have given this a 10/5!

I thoroughly enjoyed this show and I give Eddie and the content five stars, but whoever was responsible for the audio recording should be drawn and quartered. It is very difficult to hear a good bit of what is being said and I found myself constantly raising the TV volume, and even "rewound" the DVD to try and catch a couple of parts on a second go-round. Lousy soundtrack aside, I will be adding this DVD to my collection. The great comedy outshines the problem.

Maybe Eddie Izzard is an acquired taste. Slo what if he's wearing mascara, lipstick and nail polish? Unless he's *talking about his wearing those, and maybe even a dress and all the "fixin's" that go with it, if you close your eyes, he's just a hilarious British comedian whose warped way of looking at the world -- which is often the world around *you as well, even if you're **not** British -- is just plain wacko funny.

This was recorded at the Albery, a high, high theater with pretty good acoustics it seems, in 1994, which was a year or so before someone exposed me to him. It's dadgummed near as fresh today, in 2012 (almost 2013) as it was then. He's got a goofy let's "make up history as it *should have been" way of looking that things that will make you feel like someone nearby must have smoked something funny and you have a contact high. His goony view will leave you staggering.

It's nice to stumble from silly for a change instead of daily horror. I'm glad Eddie Izzard is around, and I wouldn't mind having him for a neighbor. This is a good introduction.Watch Unrepeatable and see mu next door neighbor. I think he's really a cat. ::snickersnort::

This one is from his early years. Clearly, HD quality and a sound board weren't as easy to come by in the early 90's. The comedy is fantastic, as one would expect, but the audio and visual, not so much.
