How to make your commute totally bearable

More bellies laughs than I've had listening to comedy than I've had in a long while. Could have spent the Audible credit on something more expensive but this is kind of priceless.

Funny but missing some classic bits

Eddie Izzard’s rambling, free-form style of comedy might not be to everyone’s taste but I found it perfect for listening to while out for a run. One complaint though - if you have watched the dvd version of this show you will be disappointed to find that this recording uses material from a different night of the tour so the classic “cake or death” bit is missing as is the part where Eddie does a chunk of his act in French with hilarious results. I’ve no idea why this is the case but I was left feeling a little disappointed as familiarity with that version of the show had left me expecting them. I wouldn’t say it ruined the experience for me completely but it was a bit of let down.

Not the same as the DVD version

Got this because I love the DVD and thought it would be good to listen to at work. Unfortunately it must a recording from a different night of the tour. Main jokes are the same, but just wasn’t what I was expecting or wanted.

Dressed to kill

Eddie Izzard is a comic genius and this is an excellent show. It's fun to listen to but better to watch. Great material in a different format.
