Eddie Izzard Wunderbar Canada Tour 2021

Eddie Izzard will bring her critically-acclaimed Wunderbar World Tour to Canada this Fall.

Wunderbar is a delicious insight into the surreal and fantastical world of Eddie Izzard touching on life, love, history and even her theory of the universe.

Wunderbar began life at La Nouvelle Seine, a floating theatre in Paris on the Seine where Izzard began to improvise her new show in French. She then flipped countries and continued developing the show improvising in Berlin in German. After more development in English, Izzard shared Wunderbar with the world, touring in 45 countries and performing the show in four languages… But made sure the language fit the country!

This is Izzard’s first tour of Canada since her 2013 Force Majeure tour. Force Majeure made comedy history having played in 45 countries including all 50 US States AND in four languages, making it the most extensive comedy show ever.

Izzard is arguably one of today's top comedians. With her brand of keenly intelligent humor that ranges from world history to historical politics, sexual politics, mad ancient kings, and chickens with guns, she has built an extraordinary fan base that transcends age, gender, and race.


The shows will be performed at the Princess of Wales Theatre in a socially distanced seating configuration of only 1316 seats per performance (the theatre’s full capacity is 2000 seats). Seats will be available in groupings of twos and fours. There are a limited number of single seats available. Audiences and staff will all be masked for their entire time in the venue.

Masks should fit snugly against the face without gaps; cloth masks should have at least two layers of fabric. Neck gaiters and bandanas are not permitted.

Performances in our theatres are at full-capacity seating.

The requirement of our patrons to be fully vaccinated also means that all of our staff, artists and crew must be fully vaccinated to enter and work at the Mirvish theatres.

Proof of Vaccination - All patrons, 12 years of age or older, upon entry to the theatre, must provide the following documentation:

  • Enhanced vaccine certificate (QR code) of full COVID-19 vaccination issued by the public health authority that administered the vaccine, meaning the full series of a World Health Organization (WHO) approved COVID-19 vaccine or combination of accepted vaccines, received at least 14 days prior to the performance date. Documentation can be displayed on a mobile device or printed. For patrons who received their vaccinations in Ontario, documents can be accessed at

Children under the age of 12 are not required to provide receipt of vaccination.

Nine First Nations communities are excluded from providing an enhanced vaccination receipt. Members of these communities are still required to show a vaccine receipt and a form of ID. 

Visitors from outside of Canada who do not have access to a QR code from their home jurisdiction or country that can be successfully scanned by the Verify Ontario app may show their own country’s or jurisdiction’s vaccine receipt(s) to prove they are fully vaccinated and must show their valid non-Canadian passport or NEXUS card as ID.

  • Government issued ID (i.e. driver’s license, health card or passport) that matches the proof of full vaccination documentation.
