Eddie Izzard
Eddie Izzard fans have spoken as Mick Perrin productions, Real Concerts and 94.7 Highveld Stereo announced an additional leg to his “FORCE MAJEURE” World Tour coming to South Africa in June.

The additional show is set to take place in Johannesburg on Sunday, 23 June at the Sandton Convention Centre. Doors will open at 17h00.

Izzard is already set to perform in Cape Town at the GrandWest Casino on June 18, while he has a standing engagement with Jo’burg comedy lovers on the 21, 22 and now the 23rd of June at the Sandton Convention Centre.

“Comedy has constantly remained one of the core and unique elements to the sound of 94.7 Highveld Stereo. Whether it is local or international, the station prides itself in promoting great comedy showcases for our listeners. Eddie Izzard is an international comedy sensation and the station is proud to bring him to SA’s shores,” said 94.7 Highveld Stereo Station Manager, Ravi Naidoo.

In 2011 EDDIE IZZARD performed to a sold–out Madison Square Garden in New York. He spent a three-month residency at the Théâtre de Dix Heures in Paris performing STRIPPED: ‘Tout en Francais’ (in French!) and thereafter became the first stand-up comedian to host a solo show at the Los Angeles’ legendary Hollywood Bowl. It was an extraordinary year from an extraordinary man. Never one to rest on his laurels, IZZARD now plans to take on the world with a brand-new comedy tour, “FORCE MAJEURE.”

“FORCE MAJEURE” is set to be the most extensive comedy tour ever. From Cardiff to Kathmandu, Moscow to Mumbai, EDDIE will visit 25 countries throughout Europe, USA, Africa, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, India, Nepal and The Far East.
