Eddie Izzard at the Bardavon February 16

Feb 8th, 2013 | By | Category: Entertainment

The Bardavon is pleased to present the man the New York Times calls “The most brilliant comedian of his generation”: EDDIE IZZARD on Saturday February 16th at 6pm and 9pm at the Bardavon.

Hailed as one of the foremost stand-up comics of this generation, British comedian Eddie Izzard takes ideas and situations and extrapolates them into bizarre tangential, absurd, and surreal comic narratives. He sold out Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, and now he’s selling out the Bardavon too! So we added an early show!

Izzard is also an actor and had a starring role in the television series The Riches as Wayne Malloy and has appeared in many films such as Ocean’s Twelve, Ocean’s Thirteen, Mystery Men, Shadow of the Vampire, The Cat’s Meow, Across the Universe, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and Valkyrie. He is also the voice of Nigel in the 2006 animated film The Wild, Dr. Schadenfreude in the 2008 MGM animated film Igor, and Miles Axlerod in the 2011 Disney/Pixar animated film Cars 2.

Izzard has cited his main comedy role model as Monty Python and John Cleese once referred to him as the “Lost Python”. He has won numerous awards including a Primetime Emmy Award for Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program for his comedy special Dress to Kill, in 2000. Izzard’s website won the Yahoo People’s Choice Award and earned the Webby Award.
