Stripped !

Finally, I’ve done it. I’ve been waiting for this moment for quite some tome now, and yesterday was the D-Day: I went to see Eddie Izzard live ! For his current “Stripped” tour, 3 dates were scheduled in NYC, so there was no way I was going to miss that. For those who don’t know Eddie Izzard, check Wikipedia. He happens to be one of my favorite stand-up comedians, just before George Carlin, let’s say.

The tickets were not cheap at all, but what the heck, we only live once, don’t we. And money is there to be spent after all. So of course I wanted a good seat … well I got one :) The show took place in the Radio city music hall, a very nice location. The show was hilarious, even though Eddie did not dress up as a woman this time and some jokes were “old” jokes he recycled from his former shows (Dress to Kill, Circle, Glorious, Sexie…). I’ve always loved his intelligent humor and his smart puns. As usual, he jokes about culture, history, religion, and of course the USA. I will definitely watch this show again as soon as it’s available in DVD, in the meantime you should take a look at some of his sketches. I only picked a few, but all of his shows are really good.

I could go on for hours, but that’s it for now. If you want to have a good time, watch his former shows. I think that he is brilliant and hilarious :)
