The luvvies at the Dome last night
were out in force and loud
But when the man came out on stage
were silenced by the crowd
He made us smile, he made us laugh
and tears were rolling free
the sold out house in unison
for this hilarity
A tour de force in every way
this swan song to the game
before he treads a different board
to give politics a name

The 2019 ‘Wunderbar’ tour is Eddie Izzard’s last before he goes into politics full time. He will stand for election as a labour party MP for the 2020 London mayoral candidacy. We caught the 2nd date of the Brighton leg of ‘Wunderbar’ at the Dome, a Christmas present last year from our youngest daughter.
