EDDIE IZZARD has been hailed as one of the foremost Stand-Ups of his generation. Often referred to as The Lost Python (a title bestowed by Monty Python), EDDIE'S early career began in 1983 as a street performer in London's Covent Garden. In 1993 he took to the West End stage with his stand-up debut show, LIVE AT THE AMBASSADORS. Since then there have been a succession of sell-out and critically-acclaimed international tours including DEFINITE ARTICLE, DRESS TO KILL, GLORIOUS and STRIPPED and numerous awards including two Emmy’s. EDDIE regularly performs gigs at Madison Square Garden Arena in New York, making him only the fourth comedian ever to play that venue and in 2011 he became the first ever stand up to perform at the legendary Hollywood Bowl, he has since returned. More recently there have been residencies and tours in Paris, Germany and Spain where EDDIE performs his shows in French, German and Spanish. He has plans to perform in Russian and Arabic.
