Eddie Izzard quizzed on King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard

Eddie Izzard is a comedian who has toured the world countless times, performing fluently in four languages in over forty countries. Self-professed as ‘action transvestite’ who plans to run for English parliament one day, it seems like he’s an unstoppable force.

Except when it comes to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard knowledge, apparently. Despite them rhymes.

King Gizzard and Eddie Izzard may rhyme with one another, but when you put the former’s knowledge to the test, he unfortunately comes up short.

When Izzard appeared on NPR’s celebrity quiz segment Not My Job over the weekend, he probably didn’t expect to be grilled on the history and discography of an Australian psychedelic rock band.

If you’re reading this you’re probably quite well-versed on Gizz trivia. After listening to the segment it’s safe to say… Izzard is  not.

Skip to six minutes to get down to quizness.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard released their 10th studio album Murder of the Universe last Friday, the second of their proposed five album sequence for 2017.
