Eddie Izzard will bring his globe-conquering stand-up show Force Majeure to London early in 2016, playing a four week season at the Palace Theatre.
The hit show, which Izzard launched nearly three years ago, will have played in 28 countries and been performed in four languages by the time the comedian takes to the West End stage from 18 January next year.
First seen in the UK in 2013, this latest run promises a ‘reloaded version’ of the show that is sure to be packed with the comedian/actor/multiple marathon runner/possible London mayor of the future’s unique surreal riffs.
Izzard’s West End return will follow hotly on the heels of Derren Brown, whose latest mind-blowing magic show Miracle will run at the Palace Theatre from 11 November.
Until the end of October, the iconic Shaftesbury Avenue venue hosts the hit musical theatre adaptation of The Commitments. The tale of a rag tag Irish soul band, which features classic songs including Mustang Sally and I Heard It Through The Grapevine, will close on 1 November after two years in the West End.
