Eddie Izzard tours the US with new live comedy show

British comic and actor Eddie Izzard recently toured the United States with a new live comedy show.

The tour started in Boston at the end of April 2008 and continued through many US cities, ending up in Los Angeles in August 2008.

According to the official website, tickets went on sale from March 16th.


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.
