Eddie Izzard: Live at Madison Square Garden is a 90-minute special that was released on January 15, 2011 after being taped the previous year. As one of the few comedians in the world that can fill Madison Square Garden, Izzard took the opportunity to showcase his trademark quirk-paced irreverent style of humor. Jokes concerning the difference between Brits and Americans and belief in God push the envelope far enough to keep Izzard fans on the edge of their seat. Directed by Sarah Townsend, the special highlights the epic scale of a comedian performing on the stage at Madison Square Garden, but keeps the camera intimate on Izzard, so as not to miss his talents as an actor. Izzard's ability to intertwine multiple stories at once proves him to be at the forefront of comedy today.
