The weekend

Eddie Izzard expounded on adolescence, the Church of England and how Great Britain conquered the world with “the cunning use of flags” to such success in his 1998 live stand-up show Dressed to Kill that he became America’s favorite executive transvestite overnight. In his newest live show, the British actor and comedian is about to make waves all over again. Izzard is a Force Majeure, a new show that welcomes everyone into his world of lipstick shades and James Mason impressions. Izzard entertains at Rose State College Performing Arts Center, 6000 Trosper Road, in Midwest City at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 21. Tickets, $65 each, are available at www.okcciviccenter.com. He then takes the show to the Brady Theater, 105 W. Brady St., in Tulsa at 8 p.m. Sunday, June 22. Tickets are $38.50-$56.50, available at www.bradytheater.com.

Here’s a great clip from his 1998 release Dressed to Kill. WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE.
