Eddie Izzard: Star Trek

by Brandy McDonnell Modified: May 17, 2013 at 4:07 pm •  Published: June 3, 2008

One of my favorite facets of Eddie Izzard’s comedy is his unabashed nerdiness. He waxes at length about “Star Wars,” James Bond, Greek mythology, horror movies and other geek staples.

In this YouTube clip from the DVD ”Unrepeatable” (which I recommend you rent if not buy), the Brit comic talks about some of the truisms of the original “Star Trek” series and shares some hilariously inventive ideas for phaser settings beyond “stun” and “kill.”

Again, I’ll be reporting here on BAM’s Blog about Izzard’s live performance this Saturday in Austin, Texas.

And to reiterate: I don’t recommend these clips for kids because of Izzard’s casual use of profanity, along with his affinity for donning lipstick and leggings. (That last one can be hard to explain to kids if Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd aren’t involved.) But I hope adults really enjoy them.
