Truth be told, most comedians are. Of the names I mentioned, especially Eddie (misspelled his first name last time) and Jimmy are acquired tastes. They're really not that funny when you hear them for the first time. They kinda grow on you. I went to Stripped, an Izzard show, one that he held in Amsterdam, just a year and what... ago? Really, if I didn't know him, I would have thought he was a raving madman. But that's what makes him so enjoyable, if you know what his type of humour is about.
