Eddie Izzard makes welcome return to Odyssey

THE ‘force majeure’ of the comedy world, Eddie Izzard, will be making a very welcome return to Northern Ireland next year when he plays the Odyssey Arena on May 25, 2013.

In 2011 Eddie Izzard sold–out Madison Square Garden in New York, spent a three-month residency at the Théâtre de Dix Heures in Paris performing Stripped ‘Tout en Francais’ (in French!) and then become the first stand-up to play a solo show at Los Angeles’ legendary Hollywood Bowl.

It was an extraordinary year from an extraordinary man. Never one to rest on his laurels he now plans to take on the world with a brand-new comedy tour, Force Majeure.

Force Majeure will be the most extensive comedy tour ever. It begins its mammoth journey around the globe during spring 2013. From Cardiff to Kathmandu, Moscow to Mumbai, Eddie will visit 25 countries throughout Europe, USA, Africa, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, India, Nepal and The Far East.

Tickets for the Belfast date are on sale now from all usual outlets.
