Eddie Izzard announced to perform at the Eden Sessions in June 2013

Aside from touring and acting, Eddie completed the mammoth task of running 43 marathons in 50 days

It's just been announced that Eddie Izzard will perform the opening night of 2013's Eden Sessions. Izzard will be performing at the Eden Project in Cornwall as part of his 2013 tour Force Majeure.

Force Majeure will be the most extensive comedy tour ever. It begins its mammoth journey around the globe during spring 2013. From Cardiff to Kathmandu, Moscow to Mumbai, Izzard will visit 25 countries throughout Europe, USA, Africa, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, India, Nepal and the Far East. Izzard is no stranger to long series of gigs - he recently completed the mammoth task of running 43 marathons in 50 days. In 2009 he ran the 1,000 miles through Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales in aid of Sport Relief.

Martin Williams, Eden’s Marketing Director, said: “We are immensely excited to be able to announce Eddie Izzard as our first Session of 2013.

“We are building a strong tradition of comedy at the Eden Sessions, with the likes of Bill Bailey and this year’s headliner Tim Minchin, and Eddie is no exception. The beautiful landscape of Eden is a wonderful setting in which to experience Eddie’s fantastical flights of comedy.”

Tickets to the Eddie Izzard Session cost £35 plus a booking fee and go on general sale at 5pm on Friday May 4th 2012
