WUNDERBAR WAS A DELIGHT!
I've seen Eddie twice now, and each time has been a complete delight. He's incredibly smart and quick while also dropping beautiful sentiments about life. I would never miss a chance to see him in any city!

STILL "ONE OF A KIND"!
Saw "Wunderbar" at the Dolby Theatre Thursday night, June 27th, 2019. Third time seeing him "live". A couple of VERY important tips: Get tickets EARLY so that you can be up front. It's imperative to be able to SEE his facial expressions and be able to CLEARLY HEAR what he is saying. We skipped his last L.A. show at the Hollywood Bowl for just these reasons. Take my word for this...it's IMPORTANT. As for the new show? Eddie tears it up as usual...there is NO ONE working with his level of intelligence and sheer Comic Genius. I may have to wear "Depends" next time...I just about pissed myself laughing more than once! And my facial muscles are still sore from laughter. Thank YOU, Eddie! P.S. ~ I can't believe that the LA Times didn't do a "Calendar" piece, an interview, or even a REVIEW of the show...I may have to cancel my subscription!

EDDIE IZZARD IS COMEDY AND HUMANITY AT ITS FINEST
He is a comedic genius and all that is good about humans. I laughed until I cried. Have seen him several times and was disappointed with his book tour show, so was hoping he was back to form for this go round. He did not disappoint! I would go see Wunderbar again if I had the opportunity. He’s saying this is his last tour before heading into politics, so if your a fan...go!

have been following Eddie, since I saw his Dressed to Kill act via DVD rental. Just love him. Went to the 3rd show at the Paramount - He was dressed to the nines in a blue plaid skirt, black leather jacket and stiletto boots for the 1st set and then in black short short outfit for the last bit. Some parts dragged (ha ha) a bit - but all in all I was laughing through the whole show. Highly recommend seeing Eddie in person!

EDDIE WAS GREAT, BUT HEARING HIM WAS A CHALLENGE
Eddie was fan-f%cking-tastic. Loved the material, been wanting to see him for years and grateful that we were finally able to do it. Bit of a disappointment he's no longer doing the bit in drag, but I suppose that's the price he has to pay to run for office :( Absolutely loved the bit with the talking chicken/Marc Antony. Brilliant! About the only downside to the show (thus making my rating 4, not 5) was that it was often difficult to hear/understand what he was saying - especially during the first half of the show. Having watched many of this shows in the past, I was aware that his delivery can often be under his breath and sometimes harder to make out, but this was just bad. I feel that if there were speakers behind us or if the reverb were turned down a bit it would have helped. It appeared that something was done during intermission to reduce the echo in the speakers and made it much more enjoyable during the 2nd half. Others around us agreed.

EDDIE IN CLEVELAND - MAY 2019
It pains me to say it as I've been a fan since the time Eddie's show videos were only available on VHS, but I wasn't blown away by his performance in Cleveland. Had 3rd row seats & it was nearly impossible to hear what he was saying -- critical given his rapid-fire delivery and ever outrageous & meandering thought process which of course is what makes him so darned funny. I will say, however, whether it's the marathon-ing or the swimming he alluded to, he's never been in such great physical shape. Was hard to keep your eyes off the most gorgeous gams I've ever seen which of course were full-on display during the first half when he wore a cute little flippy blue kilt number and the second half when he strode out coy-fully in black fishnets, red ruby Dorothy-esque heels, and a pair of very cropped black "hot pants." Still appreciated the opportunity to catch him live but am hoping somewhere down the line there will be a video of the Wunderbar tour so I can see/hear what I missed. :(
Comedy_no_politics from Houston, Texas
I found the first half funny but the second half was kind of drawn out and I was bored by his constant political comments, I did not pay good money to attend a rally...best of luck to him in his quest to be mayor of London but keep politics out of the show - kinda ruined it for me.
