Eddie Izzard: Force Majeure
May 22 , 2014 • BELK THEATER at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center
Pricing:$43.50 - $59.50
"The greatest British standup comedian of his generation" The London Sunday Times
Eddie Izzard The World Tour – America 2014
He’s sold out Madison Square Garden and became the first stand-up comedian to play a solo show at the Hollywood Bowl. He takes ideas and situations and extrapolates them into bizarre tangential, absurd, and surreal comic narratives - topics that skip from Darth Vader and Greek mythology to human sacrifice and chaos theory.
Eddie Izzard Force Majeure is a comic force to be reckoned with.
“Sheer Comic Genius. His humor reflects the scattershot lunacy of Monty Python, but with flashes of Robin Williams’ manic energy and a sophisticated silliness that is entirely his own. He is the most brilliant stand-up comedian of his generation.” - The New York Times
“Izzard has the acid snap of a white Richard Pryor, merged with all the Monty Pythons at once.” Toronto Star
"He walks onstage to the roaring tumult usually reserved for rock stars and soon has the audience busting a gut about the Spanish Inquisition and chaos theory. Such is the phenomenon of Eddie Izzard, funniest man, in, well, pretty much all of the known universe." The LA Times
“Inspired! Against a set that is part-Avengers, part-Austin Powers, Izzard proves that he’s still frivolous and fleet of foot - even in Cuban heels.” The Independent
