Eddie Izzard is about to take on the universe again as he introduces us to his new international comedy tour ‘Wunderbar’.
BMA caught up with PR whizz Dianna O’Neill to get all the juicy info.
“Five years after his last tour Force Majeure made comedy history having played 45 countries including all 50 US States AND in four languages, making it the most extensive comedy show ever, Eddie is back to his roots with an all-new rather personal show which expands on his own very unique, totally surreal view of life, love, history and his ‘theory of the universe’.
“‘Wunderbar’ began life at La Nouvelle Seine, a floating theatre in Paris on the Seine where Eddie began to improvise his new show in French. He then flipped countries and continued developing the show, improvising in Berlin in German.
“Now after more development in English, Eddie is ready to share ‘Wunderbar’ with the world… In a language that fits the country.”
Eddie himself chimes in on the strange mix of comedy and politics that his life has taken on.
“It is getting close to the time when I have to go off for a while to have a political life,” he says. “But before I do that, I want to keep giving audiences around the world the best stand-up comedy shows that I can – especially at a time of Brexit-hate and Trump-hate.
“My new show is about everything from humans over the last 100,000 years to talking dogs and animal superheroes. I am looking forward to coming to see everyone again.”
