Izzard takes ideas and situations and extrapolates them into bizarre tangential, absurd, and surreal comic narratives - topics that skip from Darth Vader and Greek mythology to human sacrifice and chaos theory. Eddie Izzard Force Majeure is a comic force to be reckoned with.
“Sheer Comic Genius. His humor reflects the scattershot lunacy of Monty Python, but with flashes of Robin Williams’ manic energy and a sophisticated silliness that is entirely his own. He is the most brilliant stand-up comedian of his generation.” - The New York Times.
"He walks onstage to the roaring tumult usually reserved for rock stars and soon has the audience busting a gut about the Spanish Inquisition and chaos theory. Such is the phenomenon of Eddie Izzard, funniest man, in, well, pretty much all of the known universe." - The LA Times.
