French Immersion - Eddie Izzard - Comédie En Francais
Hello fellow trainee Frenchies, I thought some of you would like this.
Comedian Eddie Izzard is fairly well known in the UK, but a lesser known fact about him, is that he has been touring his shows overseas, in foreign languages for years. He is a native English speaker like many of us and this is a video from his DVD "Stripped" on Youtube, where he performs in Paris, in FRENCH.
He speaks quickly at times, but even when you miss a few words you still get the joke.
It's very sweary, so strong language and adult humour warning.
Thanks. I'd seen a short sketch on youtube that was partly in French, but not this one.
He'd been using French in his English routines for ages, but he's started performing in French. He was in Montreal a couple of years ago and performed in both languages, which was great.
Here is where I prove the argument that despite the fact that I am on level 25 but only on exercise 23, infinitives, that I need soooo much more practice in understanding French! I understood maybe 2 out of every 50 words he said! But I'm sure it will be funny to me in maybe another year! Oy!
This guy is my favorite comedian. I'm glad more people are getting into him.
Merci beaucoup! Je peux comprendre presque tout!!
I think when someone speaks one language as a second language it's easier to understand because the learning process is similar to everyone. Thank you again, I will share it with my friends from french class!
Eddie Izzard is amazing through and through. I was just wondering what other celebrities we can "out" as being French speakers? Bradley "American Sniper" Cooper is one.
