Eddie Izzard I saw him tonight at the Comedy Store So, so good. His improv is hilarious, especially his singing

^That's so cool! I was listening to a podcast last night of Simon Amstell (another of my favorites) interview Eddie Izzard. I laughed so hard thru the entire thing, even the audience members asking Eddie questions were hysterical! It was brilliant!

I wonder if or when his show The Riches is going to be back on TV?

I'd like a chirpy breakfast companion! That was funny, DMP. And Peter Cook! So so classic and insanely funny!

Crap! That's too bad about The Riches being cancelled. I thought they were renewed and filming another season, right around the time when Minnie Driver had her baby.

Oh well....in other British Comedy news (sorry if I am repetitive, I am a huge Boosh fan and am excited about their making a big splash in the US!)

For MIGHTY BOOSH fans!! Stay tuned for some big announcements coming from the Promoter hired by Boosh mgmt for the US media blitz when the Boosh hits US soil next week!! They'll be doing Meet & Greet/Signings in LA and NY, Comic Con 7/24 & 7/25 and an after party at 4th & B on 7/24, and making appearances onJimmy Fallon 7/22 and Chelsea Lately on 7/27. Several more appearances are currently being inked out.

Follow mightybooshDVD on Twitter for some fun contests, giveaways and Boosh fun!!
Tell all your Mighty Boosh friends!

In the Loop was a hilarious political satire. Highly recommended for anyone that likes laughing or British people.
