Eddie Izzard's "Death Star Canteen" sketch

Last weekend, I cracked a joke about the "Death Star Canteen" — an iconic geeky bit by the British comedian Eddie Izzard — to my 17-year-old son, and he stared at me blankly. Then I asked if he'd heard any of Izzard's jokes. Again, all he did was blink at me.

Then, when I did the math, I realized he was probably five years old when the "Death Star Canteen" went viral in the early days of YouTube. And, he was even younger when Eddie Izzard did the sketch in the first place.

I looked it up and showed him the LEGO version and I have to say, it still slays. So we end this week with a blast from the past, Eddie Izzard's "Death Star Canteen" sketch.
