Eddie Izzard is arguably one of today’s top comedians. Cal Poly Arts just announced that the fan-favorite entertainer is returning to the Performing Arts Center on Thursday, March 1, 2018, 7:30 p.m. with his brand-new “Believe Me” tour.

Tickets go on sale to the public at noon, Friday, January 5.

Izzard’s “Believe Me” tour is a funny, emotional show that reveals the man behind the stand-up – with all of the fascination with the ridiculous that fans expect from an Eddie Izzard performance. In this intimate evening of comedy, Izzard recounts the dizzying rise he made from the streets of London to West End theaters, Madison Square Garden, and the Hollywood Bowl.

“Eddie Izzard has done something which would be a terrifying concept for many performers. He has stripped away the barriers and given a candid account of his life so far. The result is an expectantly funny yet emotionally charged evening.” – The Reviews Hub

Cal Poly Arts presented Izzard in 2012 and 2015; both shows sold out.

Tickets for the performance range from $40 – $85 and may be purchased in advance at the Cal Poly Ticket Office, Monday – Saturday, noon to 6 p.m., located on Grand Avenue on the Cal Poly campus; by phone at 805/756-4849; online at
