EDDIE IZZARD is set to bring his STRIPPED show to New Zealand in November. Tickets go on sale on Monday 5th September.


Hailed as one of the foremost stand up comedians of his generation, audiences of all ages can’t get enough of this comedy superstar. He breaks all the rules in comedy and will have you laughing harder than you have ever laughed before. He takes ideas and situations and extrapolates them into bizarre, absurd and surreal comic narratives.

“The Funniest Stand-Up I’ve Ever Seen”
The Sun

From selling out Madison Square Garden and Wembley Arena to being the first solo stand-up comedian to sell out the Hollywood Bowl and performing his show in French for three months in Paris, Eddie Izzard has become a comedic powerhouse that cannot be stopped. Nothing can prepare you for what you will experience in his hit show STRIPPED.

“It is worth queuing up overnight to see”
Sunday Express

Earning critical acclaim for his starring role in The Riches , an Emmy for “Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program” and “Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program” and appearing alongside Tom Cruise in Valkyrie and George Clooney and Brad Pitt in Oceans 12 and 13, Eddie’s talents are seemingly endless.

STRIPPED has toured the UK, US and Europe picking up rave reviews to his sold out shows and breaking house records along the way. Ticket scalpers were selling the scarce tickets for thousands of dollars making STRIPPED the indisputably must-have ticket on both sides of The Atlantic.

“He Hits the Heights”
The Sunday Times

Since his first stage appearance on London’s West End in 1993 there has been a succession of sell-outs and critically acclaimed international tours. Eddie’s musings have earned him countless awards and a reputation for being one of the most successful comedians working today.

In 2009, EDDIE took a few weeks off …and ran 1200 miles around the UK for Sport Relief, that’s 43 marathons in 51 days.

Don’t miss your chance to see EDDIE IZZARD live in New Zealand!
