Success around the world, both on stage and on screen, Eddie Izzard is never one to rest on his laurels. He keeps audiences on the edge of their seats with his bizarre tangential, absurd, and surreal comic narratives that find him espousing his views on Darth Vader, Greek Mythology, human sacrifice and chaos theory, and that's just the start!
