Stand-up comedy veteran Eddie Izzard has announced the release of his first book, “Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death and Jazz Chickens,” which will be released on June 13. In the memoir, Izzard will recount “the dizzying rise he made from the streets of London to West End theaters, to Wembley Arena, Madison Square Garden and the Hollywood Bowl.”

Izzard will be embarking on a small tour to support the book, during which he’ll perform stand-up, share personal photos, read passages from the memoir and answer questions from the audience. Tickets are on sale now.
