"Force majeure" is a French term that can mean "superior force," "chance occurrence" or "unavoidable accident." Funny, but all three of those phrases could apply to Eddie Izzard.

The Star, Toronto

The British comedian is often lauded as one of the most influential comics of the two decades so any chance to see him in his original guise, doing stand-up, live, should be grasped with both hands.

In 2011 Izzard turned talking "bollocks" (a not-so-polite British word for nonsense!) into an art form performed and sold out Madison Square Garden in New York. Three years later, he embarks on a round-the-USA tour to bring his Force Majeure to a venue near you, hot on the heels on his 2013 comedy album of the same name.
