Eddie Izzard explains the EU

For the last two weeks, our European Politics course has been covering the European Union.  In honor of this theme (and to break up the some of our more serious posts), here’s an old clip of British comedian Eddie Izzard explaining the politics of the European Union.  This clip is from his 1999 show in San Francisco, Dressed to Kill, and it may be a bit dated (the EU had 15 members then, and Tony Blair was still Prime Minister).  Even so, he pokes fun at a lot of things about EU politics which are still true to this day.


For those who have not heard of Eddie Izzard, yes, that’s a bloke in make-up.  He wears heels too!
