The star of the 1994 documentary Unzipped, Mizrahi is in constant, fluttery motion -- kvetching, quipping, slobbering over his dog -- and The Isaac Mizrahi Show has the same delightfully hyperactive quality as its host.
Mizrahi is always himself: proudly out, fretfully Jewish (while inventing the "Isaac Mizrahi" sandwich at a New York deli, he tries out a peanut butter and pastrami sandwich, lamenting guiltily, "It's very goyishe," before sinking his choppers into it), slightly neurotic and very funny.
Mizrahi, of course, crows that he did have the "nasty" fantasy himself.
