Quirky British comedian and film star Eddie Izzard, regarded one of the foremost stand-up comics of this generation, will perform at the Mondavi Center at 8 p.m. Friday. In his performances, Izzard takes ideas and situations and extrapolates them into bizarre, tangential, absurd and surreal comic narratives — many fans group Izzard with the style of comedy made popular by the Monty Python troupe a generation ago. In 2011, Izzard became the first solo stand-up comedian to appear at the Hollywood Bowl, and he has sold out venues from Madison Square Garden to Radio City Music Hall. Only a limited number of tickets left for his Davis appearance, $24-$45 general, $12-$22.50 students, available at www.mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787.
