“The show was developed to support the book, but now it seems the other way around,” remarked Eddie Izzard to a full house at Weinberg Center for the Art in Frederick, Maryland on Thursday.
Eddie was on tour to chat about his life in promotion of his autobiography, Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death, and Jazz Chickens, published in 2017 by Penguin Random House. But the tale of his life remains compelling with or without or book, as Eddie recounted highlights with the aid of slides and Google Earth on a spare stage.

Last month, I reviewed a terrific live show by The Wombats at 9:30 Club. The show sold out in a heartbeat, the band were enthused, the audience went nuts—it was a good time.
But I wouldn’t even know who The Wombats were if I hadn’t first heard them at Liberation Dance Party at DC9.
