I have a ‘thing’ for Eddie Izzard.
Yeah. A “thing”.
A big “Thing”.
A huge drooling, pawing “THING”.
Last night was the pilot episode of a new show on FX called “The Riches”, which starred Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver. An interesting little tidbit there. Eddie in a serious role, so unlike his standup, which sucks me in every time. The serious stuff he does is fine, I mean, yeah, but the standup is tres manifique. And yes, I probably misspelled that. Oui.
I dreamt about him last night.
If you get the chance, watch one of his shows, from beginning to end…you must watch the whole thing, because his comedy has a circular pattern…he’ll riff on something at the beginning that he winds around like a yarn ball throughout the show, ending with a spectacular bit of “ta-da!” and a fashionable sweater. He throws in French and religion and the President of Burundi. It’s quite something.
He’s a beautiful man.
And no, he didn’t pay me to say that.
I'm attaching a few YouTube links, but really, all you need to do is search that site and you'll find a billion jillion links to his standup. Most of it is NSFW, but the thinking person's NSFW. Plus I've learned how to say "the monkey is on the branch" in French. So, yeah.
