We watched the “Force Majeure” show last night, with British comedian Eddie Izzard. We are great fans of his, and have seen most of his shows on dvd. This one, however, can be found in its entirety on youtube. I do wonder what he is like to someone seeing him now for the first time – he tends to recycle his jokes, build on them, expand themes and ideas. To the delight of the audience (and us, for sure!), he returns near the end to his Death Star joke, which is probably one of his very finest.
He is also a great actor with a very decent career in Hollywood; he was wonderful in a television series called “The Riches”. Add that he is politically active for the Labour party, and he is pretty much a girl´s dream date!
