I love Eddie, seen him 6 times live, but this didn't do it for me. I managed to chuckle a few times. Didn't stay till it ended. Still a fan, but I might be done attending his live performances. Goes to show, he can't please everyone all the time. Upper seats in the house at Majestic.....prepare to sweat. Otherwise great venue.

1.0 star rating C.Jones from Costa Mesa, California


I had such high hopes sitting in my very expensive 5th row center seats, and being a fan for years - quoting cake or death ad naseum to whoever would listen... So I’m heartbroken to say the Believe Me show on 2/21/18 at the Segerstrom Center, Costa Mesa CA, was the worst comedy performance I have eleven seen. Eddie Izzard was late, dresses like an Irvine soccer mom, and adlibbed the whole show, mostly at an incoherent mumbled. The routine was not funny, structured without comedic thought, and peppered with various thoughts on sexuality, politics, spiritual beliefs, and philanthropy that had little detail, continuity or depth. If he thought he could winging, or endless family pics and an interactive map was funny - he is dead wrong. This was the worst performance by a professional entertainer I have ever seen, and it pains me deeply to say that.

5.0 star rating Pippa Smith from Johannesburg, South Africa


I saw Eddie Izzard in Johannesburg, South Africa- The hall was packed and within a few minutes we were howling,laughing , chortling and marveling at his clever segues from one subject to another. Roman numerals segued into ...whatever( a few years ago now) Smart, clever comedy . Don't miss it.

1.0 star rating Tom Bass from Nashville, Tennessee


I’m a huge fan but tonight I felt insulted and force fed sub-par insight on a shallow perspective pawned off as comedy. The brilliance has been left aside . No hall of fame plays tonight. Ryman Auditorium, VE DAY 2019.

5.0 star rating Kat from Manhattan South, New York


Rapid-fire patter, evocative characters (some familiar), edged with the currents of political and social life here in the US and in the chronically exiting Britain. Audience was rapt, responses hearty, and performance was a sheer delight. New York loves the Izzard.

5.0 star rating Wendy D. from Champaign, Illinois


I have been a fan of Eddie since Unrepeatable! This year for my birthday my daughter surprised me with tickets to see Eddie at the Chicago Theatre. It's this Friday and I cannot wait!!!! I'm taking my Bestie and I already know we're gonna have a ball! I already know I will not be disappointed!!! Never do you expect to laugh so much as well a learn a bit of history! Eddie is my all time favorite!! If you ever get the chance, go see him! or at the very least, get his DVD's! You will not regret it!

4.0 star rating Tara from Cleveland, Ohio


It pains me to say it as I've been a fan since the time Eddie's show videos were only available on VHS, but I wasn't blown away by his performance in Cleveland. Had 3rd row seats & it was nearly impossible to hear what he was saying -- critical given his rapid-fire delivery and ever outrageous & meandering thought process which of course is what makes him so darned funny. I will say, however, whether it's the marathon-ing or the swimming he alluded to, he's never been in such great physical shape. Was hard to keep your eyes off the most gorgeous gams I've ever seen which of course were full-on display during the first half when he wore a cute little flippy blue kilt number and the second half when he strode out coy-fully in black fishnets, red ruby Dorothy-esque heels, and a pair of very cropped black "hot pants." Still appreciated the opportunity to catch him live but am hoping somewhere down the line there will be a video of the Wunderbar tour so I can see/hear what I missed. :(
