Then, a further 4 UK dates were added – from the 20th to 23rd of December 2008. All of them at the Lyric Theatre in London's West End. Details of further tours and tickets from the Eddie Izzard Website.


Eddie Izzard started his performing career in the UK as a stand-up comedian. His unique style brought him two British Comedy Awards and much acclaim.

He later crossed the pond and gained success in the United States with a national tour and went on to win two Emmy Awards in 2000.

Since then, Izzard has continued to gain success, both as a comic performer and writer, but also as a stage actor (including Broadway), television and in movies. Many of Eddie's stand-up comedy shows are available on video and DVD, including Glorious and Definite Article.

More recently Izzard's latest TV appearances have been in The Riches, a drama series with Minnie Driver.
