Eddie Izzard – Stripped

















Eddie Izzard – StrippedHailed as one of the foremost stand up comedians of his generation, comic genius Eddie Izzard will bring his deliriously funny show “Stripped” to New Zealand after a gap of eight years.

Nothing can prepare you for what you will experience in his hit show Stripped.
