Renowned British stand-up comedian and actor Eddie Izzard will be bringing his record-breaking world tour Force Majeure to the Shlomo Group Arena in Tel Aviv on March 30.

Once referred to as the “Lost Python” by John Cleese, Izzard’s unique, tangential, absurd and surreal comic narratives are lauded for their creativity and wit, earning him a New York Drama Desk Award and two Emmys for Dress to Kill, two British Comedy Awards for Top Stand- Up Comedian, and an Olivier Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement.

His long list of film and stage credits includes Valkyrie opposite Tom Cruise, Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Thirteen and Ocean’s Twelve opposite George Clooney and Brad Pitt, David Mamet’s Race, the title role in Marlowe’s Edward II, and A Day in the Death of Joe Egg in London and on Broadway which won him a handful of awards, including a Tony nomination for best actor.

In Force Majeure, Izzard takes ideas and situations and extrapolates them into bizarre comic narratives – topics that skip from Darth Vader and Greek mythology to human sacrifice and chaos theory.
