    05:10 Izzard: [thinks] Shit! Can there really be people who don’t know Great Expectations?

    Eddie Izzard is a genius of the highest order. Or the second highest order. Whatever comes just behind the highest highest order.

    You’ve gotta love Eddie. Has there ever been a better standup comic, or improv master (mistress)?

    What an amazing human!

    I love her. She was one of my first queer exposures, and her humor has always been intelligent, relying on the absurdiy of human beings rather than insulting people. She needs to be everywhere

    HE doesn’t know if HE’s a HE or a SHE, I know HE’s an idiot. What’s wrong with people nowadays, why is everyone pretending to be something they’re not? Grow up and face the truth, all of us have had to deal with where we were born, in what environment we were born and what possibilities we had to make the best of it. That’s part of being HUMAN. I’m not waking up tomorrow and wish I was a flower and go sit in a bucket of fertilizer either.
