Eddie Izzard: Dress to Kill is a 1999 concert film of the witty British comedian and "executive transvestite." In this San Francisco performance, Izzard takes the audience on a tour of world history from Stonehenge to the Reformation through President Kennedy's trip to Berlin. He gently contrasts the differences between Europeans and Americans about historical landmarks. He also enjoys making sharp observations on a variety of cultural icons from Scooby Doo and his sidekick Shaggy to mass murderers and even Las Vegas performer Engelbert Humperdinck's name. He also takes special pleasure in skewering the Church, from the Pope to reformist Martin Luther to fundamentalism. Though well-known for his supporting roles in the "Ocean's Twelve" and "Ocean's Thirteen" films, as well as the lead in the TV series, "The Riches," Izzard first came to international fame as a stand-up performer. This quintessential performance captures his fast-paced and intellectual take on the world, religion and cultural icons.
