SAN FRANCISCO, CA (January 15, 2019)—SHN is excited to announce the return of Eddie Izzard to San Francisco as part of his Eddie Izzard: Wunderbar international tour. Izzard will play theSHN Golden Gate Theatre for three performances only, July 8 – July 10, 2019. Tickets to this special engagement go on sale Friday, January 18 at 10am at shnsf.com.

“It is getting close to the time when I have to go off for a while to have a political life. But before I do that, I want to keep giving audiences around the world the best stand-up comedy shows that I can – especially at a time of Brexit-hate and Trump-hate. My new show is about everything from humans over the last 100,000 years to talking dogs and animal superheroes. I am looking forward to coming to see everyone again,” stated Eddie.

Five years after his last comedy tour, Force Majeuremade comedy history having played 45 countries including all 50 of the United States AND in four languages, making it the most extensive comedy show ever, Eddie is back to his roots with an all-new show which expands on his own very unique, totally surreal view of life, love, history and his ‘theory of the universe.’

Wunderbar is a delicious insight into the surreal and fantastical world of Eddie Izzard. This is intelligent Bunkum of the highest order.

Wunderbar began life at La Nouvelle Seine, a floating theatre in Paris on the Seine where Eddie began to improvise his new show in French. He then flipped countries and continued developing the show improvising in Berlin in German. Now after more development in English, Eddie is ready to share Wunderbar with the world…But will make sure the language fits the country!

Eddie Izzard is one of the World’s most respected comedians. He has performed sell out shows across the world from Shanghai to Mumbai including nights at Madison Square Garden and The Hollywood Bowl.

Released on June 13, 2017, Izzard’s first book, Believe Me, is a New York Times Best Seller and was chosen by Bill Gates as one of the “5 Amazing Books I Read This Year” (https://goo.gl/kXKzNM.)  Writing with the same candor and insight evident in his comedy, he reflects on a childhood marked by the loss of his mother, boarding school, and alternative sexuality, as well as a life in comedy, film, politics, running, and philanthropy. Honest and generous, Izzard’s Believe Me is an inspired account of a very singular life thus far.

Izzard was seen co-starring opposite Judi Dench as her son Bertie, the King in waiting in the critically acclaimed film, Victoria and Abdul.  The film premiered at The Venice Film Festival on September 3, 2017 and opened to the public on September 22, 2017.

Over the course of a thirty-year career, Eddie Izzard has proved himself to be a creative chameleon, inhabiting the stage and film and television screen with an unbelievable fervor. Born in Yemen and raised in Northern Ireland, Wales, and England, he lost his mother at the age of six and that has affected the rest of his life. In his teens, he dropped out of university and took to the streets of London as part of a comedy double act.  When his partner went on vacation, Izzard kept busy by inventing a one-man escape act, and thus a solo career was ignited. As a stand-up comedian, Izzard has captivated audiences with his surreal, stream-of-consciousness comedy—lines such as “Cake or Death?” “Death Star Canteen,” and “Do You Have a Flag?” have the status of great rock lyrics. As a self-proclaimed “action transvestite,” Izzard broke a mold performing in makeup and heels, and has become as famous for his “total clothing” rights as he has for his art. In Believe Me, he recounts the dizzying rise he made from the streets of London to West End theaters, to Wembley Arena, Madison Square Garden, and the Hollywood Bowl.

Izzard is arguably one of today’s top comedians. With his brand of keenly intelligent humor that ranges from world history to historical politics, sexual politics, mad ancient kings, and chickens with guns, he has built an extraordinary fan base that transcends age, gender, and race.
