Force Majeure is the most extensive comedy tour ever. It began its mammoth journey around the globe during spring 2013 with sold-out shows across Europe, it will eventually visit over 25 countries worldwide including USA, Africa, Australia, New Zealand and The Far East.
Eddie Izzard is the man who turned talking Bollocks into an art form. He has performed and sold- ut Madison Square Garden in New York and is the first stand-up to play a solo show at Los Angeles’ legendary Hollywood Bowl. In 2012 EDDIE spent a three-month residency at the Théâtre de Dix Heures in Paris performing STRIPPED: ‘Tout en Francais’ (in French!) culminating in a sold-out performance at the L’Olympia Theatre. During the first three months of 2014 EDDIE took FORCE MAJEUERE to Germany, where he performed in German during a three-month residency at Berlin’s Admiralsplast.
Force Majeure continues its journey across the globe and Eddie is currently touring the USA. EDDIE’S Southsea shows on Thursday 31 July and Friday 1 August will be one of the few opportunities to see Eddie Live here in the UK during 2014.
