Events this week: Bark in the Park, Got to Be NC Festival

May 13, 2019

Here are our picks to help get you through the workweek!

Eddie Izzard (DPAC, 123 Vivian St., Durham) - It’s been five years since Izzard’s last comedy tour. He will be going back to his roots with an all-new show “which expands on his own very unique, totally surreal view of life, love, history and his ‘theory of the universe.’” We have no idea what that means, but it sounds good!
