  • King of the Universe . . . Comic genius . . . Entertainment incarnate

    Telegraph
  • Izzard is Wikipedia in heels. He's made his career out of hilarious, dizzying, surreal routines held up by their own daft logic . . . A force of nature

    Radio Times
  • Sheer Comic Genius. His humour reflects the scattershot lunacy of Monty Python, but with a sophisticated silliness that is entirely his own. He is the most brilliant stand-up comedian of his generation

    New York Times
  • A comedy gem

    Guardian
  • Izzard has a knack for reducing centuries' worth of history to just a few exquisite words (the Romans were just 'fascist plumbers', for example)

    Time Out
  • The funniest man in England

    John Cleese
  • The funniest man in, well, pretty much all of the known universe

    Los Angeles Times
  • Izzard is fleet of foot - even in Cuban heels

    Independent
  • Had the Pythons stuck it out, they'd certainly be doing Izzard-like gags

    Chicago Tribune
  • A consistent intelligence underpins Izzard's whimsy
