The first ever Southsea Comedy Festival opens with Eddie Izzard performing his most recent show ‘Force Majeure’ on 31st July and 1st August. Last week we gave you the chance to win two tickets to see Eddie Izzard on Thursday 31st July. The lucky winner is Si Bunting, he correctly answered the three following questions…
1) What is the name of the character voiced by Eddie in Cars 2?
Sir Miles Axlerod
2) In which American city did Eddie begin his 2014 tour Force Majeure?
Washington DC, America
3) For which charity did Eddie run an incredible 43 marathons in 51 days?!
If you aren’t lucky enough to be Si’s plus one, then you can still get your Southsea Comedy Festival tickets by calling 0844 847 2362 and online at www.southseacomedyfestival.co.uk. You can follow the Southsea Comedy Festival on Twitter @SouthseaComedy.
Great to have a comedy festival of this magnitude in our city but a shame that there’s no opportunity for Portsmouth’s home-grown comedy talent to feature, James Alderson aside.
We are fortunate in the Portsmouth area to have a wealth of resident professional comedy talent including Sean Collins, Joe Wells, Raymond & Mr Timpkins and Andy Askins and I feel they should be included on the bills to represent the city.
Next year, maybe?
