  1. Glorious

    Glorious is the title of British comedian Eddie Izzard's 1997 performance at the Hammersmith Apollo. The performance was released on VHS and covers topics such as the siege of Troy, Noah's Ark, the Royal Family to the birth of baby Jesus. In many ways, the flow of topics follow from the Bible, starting with the beginning of time according to the Old Testament and ending with Armageddon according to the Book of Revelation, though they are covered in Izzard's usual non-serious style.
