Eddie Izzard Coming to Boch Center Wang Theatre May 16 and 17

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, JANUARY 18 AT 10:00AM

Boston, MA (January 15, 2019) – The Boch Center and WestBeth Entertainment announced today that Eddie Izzard will bring his international “Wunderbar” tour to the Boch Center Wang Theatre on Thursday, May 16 and Friday, May 17, 2019 at 8:00PM. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 18 at 10:00AM.

Eddie Izzard is one of the world’s most respected comedians. He has performed sell out shows across the world from Shanghai to Mumbai. 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.

Five years after his last comedy tour, “Force Majeure”, Eddie made 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. Now, he 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.

“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.
