A Month of Comedy: Eddie Izzard

Everyday this month I will be posting one of my favorite comedians.  There will be plenty of videos and a little bit about why I like them.  The videos are most likely NSFW.

History, culture, funny voices, and humorous stories about childhood?  How couldn’t a person love Eddie Izzard?  This will seem odd, but when I tell a story and get stuck, I always go “soooo, yeah…the __________”, which I picked up from watching so much of Izzard’s stand-up.  It is not even part of his joke, but just one of his mannerisms and for some reason I adopted it.  I guess it’s better than becoming an executive transvestite (not a weirdo transvestite!)

Izzard is one of those comedians that I can probably quote the majority of these videos (which I apologize for doing over the years).  I am not kidding when I say that I have incorporated some of these jokes whenever someone asks me to explain something about history.  Or if I ever have to say something has collapsed, I always say “like a flan in a cupboard.”  And no one ever laughs…
