Win FREE Tickets to Eddie Izzard @ the Palace Theatre on Monday!

British comedian Eddie Izzard – once dubbed “the lost Python” by no less an authority than John Cleese – is bringing his latest excursion into surreal stand-up comedy, “Force Majeure,” to the Palace Theatre in Albany on Monday night. He will be performing in English, but he has also performed the show in French and German. His current stand-up tour will cover 25 countries, as well as 32 U.S. cities.

He’s earned Emmy Awards for both performing and writing. He’s a Tony nominee, and a serious actor on the Broadway stage. He’s also appeared in numerous films (from the caper flick “Ocean’s Twelve” to the Julie Taymor-helmed Beatles musical “Across the Universe” to the animated “Cars 2”), as well as on television (recently as a recurring character on NBC-TV’s “Hannibal”).

Eddie Izzard’s Nippertown debut takes place at the Palace Theatre at 7:30pm on Monday (May 12). Tickets are $42, $49, $57 & $67.
