Time Piece

Other comedians may react to the times by humorously observing the ways in which men and women differ. Eddie Izzard, however, creates time itself. Witness firsthand when the actor/comic brings his Stripped tour to the Orpheum Theater.

During the show, Izzard may chat with dinosaurs, rewrite the Scriptures, or give voice to futuristic appliances, and he’ll most certainly comment on his thoughts even as he’s having them. Free associations will be made; fourth and even fifth walls will be broken. In another life, he’d be a professional time traveler, but in this century, Izzard’s something almost equally unimaginable: wholly original.
