Eddie Izzard’s new memoir Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death, and Jazz Chickens hits bookstores in June, and he’s going on a US standup tour to mark the occasion. Izzard’s tour will make stops in New York, DC, Phoenix, Seattle, San Francisco, and Boston from June 14th through the 22nd and feature Izzard performing standup, reading from the book, and doing Q&As with the audience. Here’s more info on the memoir:
With his brand of keenly intelligent humor that ranges from world history to historical politics, sexual politics, mad ancient kings, and chickens with guns, he has built an extraordinary fan base that transcends age, gender, and race. Writing with the same candor and insight evident in his comedy, he reflects on a childhood marked by the loss of his mother, boarding school, and alternative sexuality, as well as a life in comedy, film, politics, running, and philanthropy. Honest and generous, Izzard’s Believe Me is an inspired account of a very singular life thus far.
Tickets for the Believe Me tour – which include a copy of the book – are currently on sale at Izzard’s website. The memoir is also available for pre-order over at Amazon ahead of its June 13th release.
