Gonna Google him now

Quite a character LOL:
Boy bands should be exploded from a great height. They're just pretty people singing music written by others.

Guns don't kill people, people kill people, and monkeys do too (if they have a gun).


I like my coffee like I like my women. In a plastic cup.

I saw something in a program on something in Miami, and they were saying, "We've redecorated this building to how it looked over 50 years ago!" And people were going, "No, surely not, no. No one was alive then!"

If you've never seen an elephant ski, you've never been on acid.

MAC gave me 55 lipsticks to test. These are the same lipsticks I got caught stealing by the police when I was 15. How ironic.

Never put a sock in a toaster.

They tend to come out a colour called 'Pants left in wash'

don't you mean cake or death?

He has brought out some of his comedy on the Riches. It actually is a pretty good show, I was surprised to be honest.

He's an executive transvestite! Thankfully, my first exposure to this comedy MASTER was a dvd of Dress To Kill several years ago - which I got to enjoy even more because he also speaks French and as a bonus there is a recording of a performance that was recorded in France that he does in French. Spectacular. I have subsequently purchased just about every other disc he has released and can't wait for more to surface.

If you haven't been exposed to Eddie yet, I suggest watching Dress To Kill first - it really explains where he's coming from and what he's about. And incidentally, you probably already saw him and just didn't know who he was - he was in The Avengers, Ocean's 12 and now in Ocean's 13, among others.

Coming from a similar mindset (although I wasn't born in Yemen as he was) I can identify with so much of his act. I hope he comes to LA again (I missed him the last time he was here) so I can catch him backstage and plant a big smacker on that perfectly powdered cheek!

He does standup humor in French, as well, which fascinates me.
