Expensive laughs

I'm a huge Eddie Izzard fan. I have almost all his DVDs and force all guests to watch "Dress to kill" at one point or another during their stay in our house. When flipping through Newsweek today I happened to see a notice on him going on tour and immediately went to his website. And sure enough - he will be touring the US! Yihaa!

Only to find out that all his performances in California (San Francisco and San Diego) are sold out. The only "second hand" tickets I found was two through TicketExchange for $289 - or on eBay for $174 or more...

Sigh.

And even though I love Eddie Izzard and love to laugh, he better give me a great joke every minute of his stint - or the price per laugh is just.... "laughably"... if that is a word...

Eddie Izzard is the BEST...I'm a member of Eddie's Fan Club and got tickets the first day they sold and still did not get first row. This was BEFORE public release. New Yorkers are now asking $500 for the ones they have and want to sell back. Those people can't be real fans because then they would know how much Eddie hates re-sale.
Try the box-office the nite of the show and good luck. I saw the pre-show in New York and it was fabulous.

Britgirl - yes - isn't it... it would have been GREAT to see him live... Oh, well, got to wait for the DVD - we can watch it together!

Maus - so that's what I should have done... bummer... good to know he hates re-sales... Oh, I'm so jealous you got to see the pre-show! ;-)
