TOP surreal comedian Eddie Izzard is coming back to Belfast.

The funnyman whose repertoire covers everything from the grim existence of plankton to cows talking like James Mason will perform at the King's Hall on Sunday, November 28.

Eddie, who draws his influence from the Goons, Monty Python and Billy Connolly, has a huge following in Northern Ireland.

On previous visits to Belfast he has sold out the Waterfront and Ulster Halls and the former Arts Theatre.

One of the most successful comedians in UK history, his video releases consistently top the charts.

He has recently broken into acting and had roles in several films.

Tickets are available from the Virgin Megastore, priced £18.50 and £17 (£5 concessions).
