Comedian Eddie Izzard performs in Dubai as part of the first ever DXBLaughs comedy series on April 27.

One of the world’s most famous comedians, Eddie Izzard, is bringing his Force Majeure tour to the Dubai World Trade Centre on Thursday April 27 as part of the launch for DXBLaughs.

The inaugural comedy series, launched by Done Events, will bring some of the world’s leading comedians to Dubai to perform at various venues across the year. Beginning with Eddie Izzard, more artists will be announced for further comedy shows slated to take place in October and December.

Beginning in 2013, the English comedian’s Force Majeure tour has already visited 30 countries globally including cities throughout India, China, New Zealand, Australia, Africa, USA and Europe.

The Americans love him too.

He regularly performs gigs at Madison Square Garden in New York, making him only the fourth comedian ever to play that venue. In 2011, he became the first ever stand up to perform at the legendary Hollywood bowl.

He has also performed residencies globally including Paris, Germany and Spain where he performs his shows in French, German and Spanish.
