Eddie Izzard at Altria Theater

Saturday, Oct. 6

British comedian Eddie Izzard refers to himself as an action transvestite. His rapid-fire humor is cerebral and creative, worldly, educated and lifted by his own theatrical performance skills honed on stage and screen. His new tour, Believe Me, tells the personal story of his rise from the streets of London to playing Wembley Stadium, billed as “comedy, painted nails, politics, my life.” If smart, surreal humor is your thing, check him out. 8 p.m. $47-$67. altriatheater.com.
