“…Like A Hundred Million Hotdogs, Sir.”

13 Jun

I love Eddie Izzard. In all his transvestite-sparkly-dressed-tight-leather-trousered-lipsticked-and-eyelinered glory.  He’s just pretty awesome.

Eddie Izzard

Mr Izzard himself.

“Transvestite is male tomboy, not, repeat,  NOT drag queen. Gay men have pretty much got that covered.”

Eddie Izzard


Yes. I adore the man. This is why.

  • He’s a transvestite comedian/enne. And God knows we need more of those. Jeesh, it must have taken guts to stand up in front of his first audience and say, “I like to dress up in women’s clothing”. It would have been very funny, but yes, it would have taken guts.
  • He’s very funny. See above. I think you kind of have to be.
  • He’s very clever. His wit is rapier sharp, spur-of-the-moment and always tongue in cheek.
  • He’s not afraid to adlib. I would be.
  • He’s not afraid to make fun of people. In ‘Dressed to Kill’, one of his comedy shows filmed in San Fransisco, he slags off Americans, journalists and the British practically every second sentence. Every third sentence he manages to offend every other person on this entire planet. And gets away with it.  
  • He’s very British, sir. And is proud to show it off, with typical English sarcasm and a vair plummy accent, old bean.
  • He’s totally outrageous. And that’s what makes him more awesome than a hundred million hotdogs. (If you get this quote, you get extra points.)

So yes. I fan-obsess about His Sparkly Personage of Izzardness. So remember, kids,  never put a sock in a toaster, and COMPLAIN if your three-toast is five-toast.

P.S.: ‘One more thing! (a la Jackie Chan) I will leave you with a typically wise quote.

“Puberty is the sickest joke God plays on us. So you’re just noticing members of the opposite sex: “Girls, girls, ooo”. Naturally you want to look your best, and God says “No! You will look the worst you’ve ever looked in your life!”

And that is why I’m an agnostic! Goodnight!

      Ah, yes. And later, female hair loss too.
      Honestly, watching him in action is the most painful experience of my life. Meaning that I did hack hack up a lung or three laughing.

    Eddie is hilarious – I think I laugh at him more than any other comedian. Must get to see him!
