Day 36: Eddie Izzard: Circle (2000)


I have to admit, I am kind of a sucker for stand-up comedy. Whether it be a live show, watching the latest season of The Last Comic Standing, or setting up a little stage at home where I tell jokes to the cats; I like it all (FYI, the cats don’t tip well. They may be European). A few years ago, when my husband and I took a road trip across country, we listened to a few stand-up routines. I learned a few things from doing this on a trip: (1)- Eddie Izzard’s Dressed to Kill routine was really funny; and (2)- the “random” setting on my mp3 player doesn’t seem so random as it kept playing clips from Dane Cook’s routine that (3) I didn’t find so funny (especially the hundredth time the joke was played). Naturally, the second I returned from the trip and had access to a computer, I added a few of Eddie Izzard’s stand-up shows to my queue. Today I finally decided to watch Circle (maybe it was all of The IT Crowd episodes that put me in the mood for British comedy).
