The revival of the play "Lenny" starring Eddie Izzard played a limited run in London's West End in 1999. This is a news profile of the show and features interview and performance clips of Eddie
Here's Eddie back on Letterman six months after his first appearance. This was mid-March, 1998 and Eddie went straight for the audience's funny bone and had them from joke one.
Eddie stops by Letterman's show for the third time and finally gets to chat. Here he's promoting his role in the film "Velvet Goldmine"
If memory serves, this was the show during which the horrible Kathy Lee Gifford was the first guest and dug in her heels and refused to leave because she had so many "important" things to say. As a result, Eddie came flying on near the end of the show and talked double-speed to make the most of his five minutes. Either that or Dave's green room serves a powerful espresso.
Grace under pressure, Eddie performs at the 1998 Comic Relief benefit. Just a short bit from the "highlights" version of the show.
Poor Roseanne! This show was cancelled almost before it began. Eddie was a guest during her first week. This clip is very short because it's from the bizarre UK airing of the show...it was aired in the UK a few months after the US but was edited down to a 30 minute show so the guests seemed to be on for about three seconds. Oh well, it's still a rare Eddie clip and that's what this channel is about.
Eddie's first visit to Craiggers. This was at the height of Survivor mania so poor Eddie was voted off the talk show at the conclusion of the interview
Here's Eddie in the woods, digging away with a group of kids as part of Time Team's Big Dig. Just short 'n' sweet. Also known as "Celebbie come and dig a ditchie type thing".
Here's a clip of the program "Stand Up with Alan Davies" from 1999 in which Alan Davies talked to all kinds of comedians. The program jumped around a bit so I've just edited a few parts together. Eddie prepares for a huge stand up benefit at Wembley stadium, he talks to Alan about some of his comedy theories and a clip of him from 1989 is shown. This is all contrasted with a bunch of aspiring comedians taking a stand up workshop.
Frank and his ol' pal Eddie have a chat.
I'm guessing about 1996 for this one? Clive had a different comedian on his show evey week to go over the headlines and I think Eddie did particularly well
Eddie Izzard on the Des and Mel show.
