Due to phenomenal demand we are pleased to be able to announce the stand up will be entertaining the North East for a second night on Thursday 29th October 2009.
Comedian Eddie Izzard has completed an incredible feat of endurance, finishing his 43rd marathon in 51 days.
The 47-year-old has run a marathon almost every day for the past seven weeks, to raise what he calls, in classic whimsical Izzard style, 'billions' for Sport Relief by covering an amazing 1,100 miles across the British Isles.
And if that wasn't enough the super fit, super funny Izzard is already preparing to swap his well worn trainers for the more familiar microphone and taking his rightful place back on centre stage with the hilarious tour 'Stripped' live at the Metro Radio Arena Thursday 29th and Friday 30th October 2009.
Tickets costing £30 are available now.
