'A Demonstration of the Power of Self Belief'

It’s nearly 5 o’clock in the morning and I am suffering from a broken leg and boredom so I got myself snooping around for smt cunningly smart and hysterically funny. So, I started from the classics ‘Monty Python’ and such until It got to me; what better than Eddie Izzard.

For you who still have no idea of whom I am talking about; let me introduce you.

Eddie Izzard, the “Lost Python” according to John Cleese is a Brit stand-up comedian and actor who mostly performs as a travesty “Women wear what they want and so do I." According to Izzard, he is "a straight transvestite or a male lesbian" or else "a lesbian trapped in a man's body."

Mr. Izzard’s comedy finds roots in Monty Python in the way he streams out of his consciousness in his performances delivery and jumps among topics. As a dyslexic he rarely works with a script and thus interrupts himself with new jokes and ideas that may alter the character he portrays into a completely new one. He juggles topics both current and historic, regular re-imaginings of historical events which result in scenes like 'Cake or Death: Church of England runs the Inquisition,' or 'Jesus Ministers to the Dinosaurs.'

Enough of history and let’s get to are current times. Eddie Izzard released a documentary called ‘Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story’. It narrates the canonicals of the comedian’s rise to fame from the near beginning, his mother’s death from cancer when he was just 6 years old and thus later his departure to boarding school with his brother and his close tie with his father.

Believe was screened in San Francisco on March 25th and is now realeased on DVD and its is just glips of something i would dare to call colse to ammazing >>>

“If you want to be a singer, you've got to believe you can sing, if you want to be a comedian you've got to believe you can be funny.” You can DO anything if you just only BELIEVE../
