Eddie Izzard allows you to choose your language – and we don’t mean the bad or foul variety
Comedian, actor, writer, political activist and undertaker of extreme running missions (earlier this year he completed 27 marathons – that’s 707 miles – in 27 days across South Africa for Sport Relief), Eddie Izzard is not a man to shy away from a challenge. Which might explain his latest show, Force Majeure, in which he will perform his latest stand-up routine in three separate, back-to-back one-hour blocks. No biggie? Oh yeah, he’ll be doing it in three different languages too.
The show is touring in support of the Stronger in Europe campaign, for which Eddie is a passionate spokesperson, and it comes to Cambridge on 19 May, when you can catch it in German (7pm slot), French (8pm) and English (9pm).
There’s no danger of relying on the multilingualism as a gimmick though: the comedian has drawn widespread praise for this politically charged, often surreal, romp through British and European history. Pick your language de choix and join him at Cambridge Junction, tickets are £17.
