Izzard’s 90-minute act is as he says, “About everything that has ever happened…with some gaps.” His deconstructions of Biblical fables such as Noah’s Ark and Moses talking to the burning bush are absolutely hilarious. Let me be clear though, if you are a Christian who believes that the world began 6,000 years ago, this show will probably offend you.
I think the guy is the funniest comedian out there today though, as did the 20,000 New Yorkers who watched this show one night in 2010. The DVD extras are deleted scenes from the concert, which add up to an additional 15 minutes of material. God only knows what the future holds for Eddie Izzard, but to see a comedian at the top of his game, one would be hard pressed to top his performance on Live at Madison Square Garden.
