Izzard Plans German Stand-up Show

16 December 2008 4:07 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

British funnyman Eddie Izzard is planning another historic stand-up gig in mainland Europe with a Berlin show completely in German.

The bilingual comic has already won acclaim for performing an all-French gig in Paris, France - he's now planning another trip to Europe and this time he will be brushing up on his German.

Izzard, who plays a German officer in Tom Cruise's new movie Valkyrie, tells WENN, "They say the Germans have no sense of humour and I'm going to prove them wrong by doing gigs in Berlin.

"I've been planning this for some time; in another two years. It'll be at the Quatsch Comedy Club in Berlin. I talked to them five years ago about doing it but I have to do Paris first in French, which I've already done, and then stand-up in German in Berlin." »
