Izzard’s 2015 U.S. tour follows his 2014 run of U.S. tour dates where he performed 50 shows in 32 cities in 64 days. Force Majeure is the most extensive comedy tour ever; launched in March of 2013, the tour will take Izzard to 25 countries on five continents. From Cardiff to Kathmandu and Moscow to Mumbai, Force Majeure will play throughout Europe, Africa, Russia, the U.K., Canada, the U.S., India, Nepal, The Far East and Australia. Izzard has performed the show in France performing entirely in French, Berlin performing entirely in German and plans to learn and perform the show in Spanish, Russian and Arabic.
One of the most acclaimed comedians of his generation, Izzard’s unique, tangential, absurd and surreal comic narratives are lauded for their creativity and wit, earning him a New York Drama Desk Award and two Emmys for “Dress to Kill,” two British Comedy Awards for Top Stand-Up Comedian, and an Olivier Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement.
In the U.S., Izzard is the first solo stand-up comedian to perform at the Hollywood Bowl; has sold-out three consecutive nights at Radio City Music Hall and toured arenas throughout the U.S. including a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden.
On television, Izzard will star in the Playstation original series, “Powers,” premiering on March 10. He guest starred in the series, “Hannibal,” on NBC, starred in and served as a producer on the critically acclaimed FX Network Show, “The Riches,” opposite Minnie Driver, guest starred in the final season of Showtime’s “United States of Tara,” and his 2010 documentary, “Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story,” received an Emmy nomination.
His long list of film and stage credits includes “Valkyrie” opposite Tom Cruise, Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s Thirteen” and “Ocean’s Twelve” opposite George Clooney and Brad Pitt, David Mamet’s “Race” and “The Cryptogram,” the title role in Marlowe’s “Edward II,” and “A Day in the Death of Joe Egg” in London and on Broadway which won him a handful of awards, including a Tony nomination for Best Actor.
