"It is getting close to the time when I have to go off for a while to have a political life. 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," stated Eddie.
Five years after his last comedy tour, Force Majeure, made comedy history having played 45 countries including all 50 of the United States AND in four languages, making it the most extensive comedy show ever, Eddie is back to his roots with an all-new show which expands on his own very unique, totally surreal view of life, love, history and his 'theory of the universe.'
Wunderbar is a delicious insight into the surreal and fantastical world of Eddie Izzard. This is intelligent Bunkum of the highest order.
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... But will make sure the language fits the country!
Izzard is arguably one of today's top comedians. With his brand of keenly intelligent humor that ranges from world history to historical politics, sexual politics, mad ancient kings, and chickens with guns, he has built an extraordinary fan base that transcends age, gender, and race.
