Album Review

Briefly available on CD upon its 1996 release but not widely distributed until Anti Records reissued all of Eddie Izzard's early albums in 2004, Definite Article is the second of Izzard's mid-'90s run of stand-up showcases. A huge creative leap forward from 1994's much more conventional Unrepeatable, Definite Article was recorded in December 1995 on the last night of a ten-week stand at London's Shaftesbury Theater.

Born in 1962 to an accountant father and a mother who was a nurse, Izzard spent his early childhood in Yemen. Both of his parents worked at the British Petroleum...
