Four dates to tie in with his memoirs

Eddie Izzard has announced four UK dates to tie in with the publication of hs memoirs.

Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death and Jazz Chickens is to be released on July 15.

And in the run-up he will be visiting The Lowry in Salford on July 2 (Tickets); Richmond Theatre in South-West London on July 4 (Tickets); Edinburgh’s EICC on July 6 (Tickets) and Brighton Dome on July 8 (Tickets).

Tickets went on sale at 10am today.

The events are being billed as intimate evenings, with Izzard reading extracts from the book and sharing personal family moments and photographs with the audience. 

Izzard’s story starts back in Aden, where he was born, and includes the devastating death of his mother when he was six, which he believes has been the driving force that has propelled him so strongly.

The events – which follow a similar short run in the States – will also feature an audience Q&A.
