Not quite as involving as I had hoped, it still gives some insight into one of the funniest people alive today. Any new Eddie is good Eddie, even in documentary form.

Interesting documentary about the life of Eddie Izzard, flawed only by focusing largely on the his "struggling artist" early years, then breezing fairly quickly through his more successful years (and his film and tv work gets little more than a footnote). Those unfamiliar with his stand-up won't be terribly interested or impressed, but long-time Eddie fans like me will no doubt be intrigued. Some of the most interesting material is watching him workshop new material in small venues in preparation for his "Sexie" tour.

Documentary telling the story of comedian and actor Eddie Izzard, which follows him from his childhood right up to the 2003 Sexie tour.

Eddie Izzard has got to be one of the best stand up comedians out there, and this documentary is a very affectionate look at his life story. Charting his childhood, school days and rise to stardom, it follows him right up to his 'workshop' shows for the Sexie Tour. It is jam packed with interviews with family, friends and the man himself, and the chance to see some archival footage of his early days doing street performing is worth the ticket price alone. This is a very interesting, funny and (at times) emotional documentary which is perfect for the rabid fan, or anyone who has heard of him and wants to know more.

Interesting look at the origins of the unique comics success. The early material and the gutsy antics of a young man with passion for performance are illuminating and shine a light on the hard work 'over night' success takes.

The life of a truly resilient man, the simply incredible comedian Eddie Izzard, is told through personal footage, specially recorded interviews as well as his very own material where he's previously spoken about events in his life. All tailored together by passionate director Sarah Townsend, this is the story of how Eddie continued to believe through many years of failure and rejection, until he got everything just right. This will not only inspire wannabe comedians, but any person in general, to set your heart on something and then never to give up.

Truly inspiring. Thanks Eddie. Thank you very much.
