Summary

Eddie's 'bibilical' album, loosely set around the old and new testament, encompassing the 'death of Diana' and 'Armgeddon' sketches.

Glorious was recorded in London during Eddie's compass tour of the capital, which followed the now legendary Paris 'in French' dates. Eddie went on to perform on Broadway, a show that became Dress To Kill.

“I like my coffee like I like my women. Covered in bees!”

One of my favourite shows from my favourite comedian. Laughed from beginning to end.
I find it strange it’s slightly different from the dvd version, but still just as funny!

still funny

I find Izzard is one of the few stand ups whose performance doesn't lose much by being audio only. slightly dated with jokes about Diana and Tony Blair but still stands up if you remember the context (which I do, just). interesting to listen to in the way times have changed for the better too. A good hour or so of giggles and nice clear audio.

I enjoyed it

I found the randomness of it very entertaining as felt like missing a second and another topic I was laughing at whilst trying work out how I got there

Петросянство but funny

A lot of smart internal references and the bit about printing was very relatable. Not the funniest stand up in the world, but there are things to learn from.
