Did you dry these in a rainforest?

Eddie Izzard may be the funniest man on the planet. I can sit and listen to him mumble all evening long with nary a break. And I rarely use words like "nary", but there it is...taunting me.

Here is his take on what it would be like for Darth Vader to order food at the Death Star's cafeteria. And someone with a lot of time on their hands made a lego video for the rant. Very clever. {shakes his head "no"...then nods his head "yes"...then shakes his head "no"...rinse and repeat}



Found this on Gorilla Mask, by the way. If you've never been there it is a wonderful source of everything funny and nasty on the Internets. Plus boobs!

Izzard's hilarious. Last season his show "The Riches" was really good. This year it's gone off the rails and is almost completely unwatchable.

There's no point to this is there?

Diva - ah...the ole' LOL. It's been a while. ;)

Limpy - To me there is. I loved the first few episodes of "The Riches", but I thought it fell off quickly.

Oh, shit! That's hilarious. I'm going to have to put some Eddie Izzard on my Netflix queue. They have suggested it before but I don't remember which ones I've seen and which ones I haven't.

B.E. Earl said...

ajooja - If you haven't seen it yet, start with "Dressed to Kill". Fucking hysterical!!!

I am sad to say I have seen ever Eddie (stand-up) DVD there is so I have no more to watch, but I really and truly loved this video.

So many good lines to take away from it...

"For I will hack at your neck with the thin bit..."

Brilliant.

B.E. Earl said...

Poppy - Sad to have seen every DVD? Aww...but you had a laugh, eh? ;)

Jon - I loved that line too!

Poppy Cede said...

Yes, just sad I have no new content to watch because he's so effing funny.

Em said...

Ah, I'd almost forgotten how good Eddie Izzard was! I've been watching/listening to so much David Cross and Lewis Black stand up.

bobgirrl said...

OMG, I FUCKING FUCKING FUCKING FUCKING FUCKING love Eddie Izzard! Alas, I have never heard that bit but I just peed my pants (damn you! I shall hack at your neck with this thin bit!)

Now, why hasn't someone done that with the "cake or death" routine???

bobgirrl said...

OH FUCK! There is "Cake or Death?"

i like boobs and I like legos. I don't like darth vader though. that guy's a total douche. he's very literal and assumes everyone is picking a fight with him.

Slyde said...

man, i fucking love eddy izzard...

i hadnt heard this one, either...

i STILL laugh at his explanation of how WW2 should have been run like a game of Risk...

B.E. Earl said...

Em - Lewis Black is a maniac. In a good way.

bobgirrl - Yeah, there is a bunch of them, but "Cake or Death" and this one are the funniest.

Darth - And he wears black all the time. How gauche.

Slyde - That's how you wold run a war.

I stayed up past my bedtime watching all of them!
