The man the London Sunday Times Calls “The Greatest British Stand-Up Comedian of his Generation” returns to Memphis with his World Tour “force majeure”
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.
“Sheer Comic Genius. His humor reflects the scattershot lunacy of Monty Python, but with flashes of Robin Williams’s 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
“Hilarious! He has the acid snap of a white Richard Prior, merged with all the Monty Pythons at once.” Toronto Star
“Surreal awesomeness.” GQ - UK
"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
“John Cleese calls him the funniest man in England and the "Lost Python." No surprise: Izzard's whimsical, sophisticated and often bizarre monologues do delve deeply into Monty-Python-like absurdity.” Toronto Star
