If you prefer your comics telling you the generalized differences between men and women, then Eddie Izzard probably isn’t your bag. The actor/comedian/marathon-runner and otherwise Renaissance man prefers to mine less traditional material for his jokes. Try the formation of the Church of England or beekeepers or Charles Darwin instead.

In this first clip of Force Majeure, Izzard ruminates on the physical fitness of the entire animal kingdom. Watch out for some NSFW language and get the full show on Nov. 18.
