Eddie Izzard Bares It All

Oh, Eddie Izzard, you lovable scamp. Long before he took over the small screen as a gypsy gone darkly mainstream on The Riches, he was cracking us up with his hilarious stand-up. Perhaps best known for wearing a dress on-stage (and off), Izzard's stream-of-consciousness comedy has kept us in stitches through specials like Glorious and Dress To Kill. Now he's bringing his new show, Stripped, to the Chicago Theatre for a three night run. And if you want to go, you'd better get a move on. Last time we checked, Friday and Saturday's show were sold out, but there were still tickets available for Thursday's show.

Eddie Izzard: Stripped, May 15 - May 17, 8 p.m., $50 - $72, The Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State St., Tickets available via Ticketmaster
