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.

Pleasantly surprised that this wasn't just an overblown promo video. Nice to see the shape of Eddie Izzard's career summed up, with some good performances clips now and again.

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.
