    Eddie Izzard: Wunderbar

    This show is "a delicious insight into the surreal and fantastical world of Eddie Izzard." And of course you're aware that, "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's built an extraordinary fan base that transcends age, gender, and race." All that, and sometimes his nail polish matches his footwear, too. Austin is the man's huckleberry, to be sure: Reckon he can feel the love all the way from A to Izzard.
    Mon.-Tue., June 10-11, 8pm. $51.50 and up.

    Underground Comedy

    This newly revitalized basement venue is dedicated to "bringing the best in alternative comedy with shows seven nights a week." Mondays start things off with that sprightly revue of optimism called Fuck This Week, there's the unpredictable Playpen on Tuesdays, the all-female comedy showcase called Garage on Wednesdays, and Thursday's Call Your Lawyer is chock full of criminal laughs. We recommend the musical improv of Girls Girls Girls on Friday, and you don't want to miss the inarguable power of Sure Thing with Duncan Carson and Brendan K. O’Grady later that same night. And then Saturday brings what won't be the last First Annual Hollywood Awards Show onstage, and then you're invited to heckle the comics at Off Script, and – see website for more!
