Stage and screen actor, comedian and now author Eddie Izzard has emerged as one of the most transcendent and unclassifiable comedic talents of his generation. On “The Believe Me Tour: Comedy, Painted Nails, Politics, My Life!” Izzard turns the lens upon himself. The tour supports Izzard’s first book, Believe Me, which was released on June 13, 2017 and is a New York Times best-seller. Writing with the same candor and insight evident in his comedy, he reflects on a childhood marked by the loss of his mother, boarding school and alternative sexuality, as well as a life in comedy, film, politics, running and philanthropy.
Eddie Izzard performs at the Ulster Performing Arts Center (UPAC) in Kingston on Friday, February 16 at 8 p.m. Ticket prices range from $54 to $74. For tickets and additional information, visit www.bardavon.org. UPAC is located at 60 Broadway in Kingston.
