Eddie Izzard–a strong candidate for the funniest human being alive–hosts an entertaining smorgasbord of musicians and stand-up comics at this benefit event celebrating Amnesty International’s 40th anniversary. Some of the humor trades heavily on British references and the comedians are largely unknown in the U.S., but that doesn’t keep them from being very funny. Musicians include U2, Badly Drawn Boy, and Tom Jones, who all deliver stirring performances. Political references are surprisingly few, but there are some pointed bits–Jeremy Hardy sardonically notes: “Why would the police bother to arrest innocent people? Because they are easier to catch.” Not only does Izzard (Glorious, Dress to Kill) sprinkle a variety of short routines throughout the show, another comic will delight Izzard fans with his spot-on imitation of how Izzard would play the young Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars.
