Already one of the most acclaimed comics of his generation, Eddie Izzard is developing an equally stellar reputation as a film, television and stage actor. In 2011 Izzard became the first solo stand-up comedian to appear at the Hollywood Bowl in his hugely successful show EDDIE IZZARD: STRIPPED TO THE BOWL. In April 2008, he embarked on the largest comedy tour of his career, his show titled, STRIPPED. In five months, he performed in 34 cities across the United States including three nights at New York’s legendary Radio City Music Hall. Upon his return to the UK, he broke box office records by selling out a five week tour in the London’s West End in less than forty-eight hours. The STRIPPED tour returned to the US for a run of arenas including a sellout show at Madison Square Garden. On television, Izzard starred in and served as a producer on the critically acclaimed FX Network Show THE RICHES opposite Minnie Driver. Mature Audiences
