Definite Article is the title of British comedian Eddie Izzard's 1996 performance released on video and CD. The video/DVD and CD performances were both recorded on different nights at the Shaftesbury Theatre in London, England. Both recordings cover topics such as The Italian Job, Pavlov's dogs and European languages. Izzard released Glorious the next year in 1997. -- Wikipedia

Trivia: Eddie's stage prop is a very large open book with selections of text from various examples of classical fiction projected onto the pages. Selections include "The Proposal" by Anton Chekhov, Shakespeare's "Macbeth" Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky" and "The Mayor of Casterbridge" by Thomas Hardy. In all selections of text every word "the" is replaced by "definite article." Hence the title of the video production. For instance: "'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:" is replaced by, "'Twas brillig, and definite article slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in definite article wabe:" -- imdb.com
