Eddie Izzard Reviews
Kate from Cincinnati, Ohio
Quite surprised there's no reviews posted about this show. I've been an Eddie Izzard fan since 98 or 99 when I first saw Dress to Kill. It was and still is the best stand up act I've ever seen. I saw him a few years back at the Taft and loved it, but my seats were crap. This time I made certain I was right up front. Great show. My cheeks and belly hurt from laughter . The bit about Welsh and Indian accents really had me going. I had tears!!!!!! I always said that if I became terminally ill ( I'm a morbid cow), I would want to meet this man and I thought maybe it would happen during the Q & A session afterward , but no such luck . The man is my idol! Great show Eddie!!! Thanks for passing through . Hope to see ya again .

BEST SHOW EVER
I have been an Eddie fan for years but never had the privilege of seeing him perform in person. Last night in Denver at the Paramount theater my dream came true of seeing him live and in person. We Had front row seats And the show was amazing. My stomach still hurts from laughing so much. Eddie's humor and insight into The human condition is hilarious. The man is wicked smart and amazingly talented. If you ever get the chance to see him perform in person, GO. I hope he doesn't wait so long to come back to Denver again. Thank you Nick for sharing the experience with me.

EDDIE WAS GREAT, BUT HEARING HIM WAS A CHALLENGE
Eddie was fan-f%cking-tastic. Loved the material, been wanting to see him for years and grateful that we were finally able to do it. Bit of a disappointment he's no longer doing the bit in drag, but I suppose that's the price he has to pay to run for office :( Absolutely loved the bit with the talking chicken/Marc Antony. Brilliant! About the only downside to the show (thus making my rating 4, not 5) was that it was often difficult to hear/understand what he was saying - especially during the first half of the show. Having watched many of this shows in the past, I was aware that his delivery can often be under his breath and sometimes harder to make out, but this was just bad. I feel that if there were speakers behind us or if the reverb were turned down a bit it would have helped. It appeared that something was done during intermission to reduce the echo in the speakers and made it much more enjoyable during the 2nd half. Others around us agreed.

I found the first half funny but the second half was kind of drawn out and I was bored by his constant political comments, I did not pay good money to attend a rally...best of luck to him in his quest to be mayor of London but keep politics out of the show - kinda ruined it for me.

NOT "DRESSED TO KILL"
I love Eddie Izzard and I found last night's performance to be a mix of watching someone share their vacation photos with you (that you didn't ask to see) mixed with a Book Tour promotion. I honestly thought this would be more about his comedy than his autobiography -- so I am disappointed. I did enjoy the Q&A part and wished that was a bit longer (and possibly filled with better questions) because that was Eddie Izzard being his funny self. I was thrilled he was coming to town - but I ended up leaving before the very end because it got a little preachy. I just needed a night of laughter and the zainy humor that Eddie Izzard is best known for providing - but I guess I'll have to get that on HBO or something. Not a great evening.
