My favourite comedian Eddie Izzard is on a new world tour which started in March 2013 called Force Majeure.
Dubrovnik – 22nd March
Zagreb – 24th March
Osijek – 26th March
The dates have been arranged by the London Calling comedy team who have been organising stand-up comedy shows by English speaking comedians from around the worlds for the last couple of years in Croatia and neighbouring countries. Well done guys!
After the Zagreb show a few fans met him backstage. I asked him about his early days and he remembered the early shows in Brighton at the Zap Club in the early 1990s.
I first saw Eddie Izzard do stand-up comedy back in 1991 at the Crocodile Comedy Club which used to be held at the Concorde Bar in Brighton, my home town, and just a few miles away from Eastbourne where Eddie went to school.
Since then of course he has become a very famous known comedian, playing to packed houses all over the world.
We are looking forward to Eddie’s visit to Croatia – particularly because here we will see the show before the tour reaches the UK and Brighton later in May and July 🙂
In 2003 the Discovery Channel broadcast a 3 part documentary ‘Mongrel Nation’ about England and the English language hosted by Eddie Izzard.
