Izzard and Martin headline Mondavi Center performances

DAVIS — The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, University of California, Davis, announces two performances: Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers on Saturday, Aug. 25 at 8 p.m. and Eddie Izzard on Friday, Oct. 26 at 8 p.m.

In the roughly three years since Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers have been touring together they have delighted audiences at Bonnaroo, New Orleans’ Jazzfest and The Newport Folk Festival to name a few.

They have embarked on four widely acclaimed tours with critics such as The Orange County Register noting “what’s so heartening and wonderful to see is Martin back on stage, doing both things he does best — playing banjo and being funny.”

Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers’ latest album, “Rare Bird Alert,” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Chart and at No. 43 on the Billboard Top 200.

The album was also nominated for a Grammy for “Best Bluegrass Album” and features special guest vocals from Paul McCartney and the Dixie Chicks.

Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers were named “Entertainer of the Year” at the 2011 International Bluegrass Association Awards.

Izzard has been hailed as one of the foremost stand-ups of his generation and is developing an equally stellar reputation as a film, television and stage actor.

His bizarre, tangential, absurd and surreal comic narratives are lauded for their creativity and wit.

Most recently, Izzard lent his voice to Disney’s animated feature “Cars 2″ opposite Owen Wilson.

The original documentary “Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story,” which documents his rise to fame from his early influences to now, received an Emmy Award nomination.

Izzard has also been on Broadway in David Mamet’s “Race” and in the independent film, “Every Day,” opposite Liev Schreiber, Helen Hunt and Carla Gugino.

Other recent film roles include “Valkyrie” opposite Tom Cruise, MGM’s animated film, “Igor,” Steven Soderbergh’s caper, “Ocean’s Thirteen” and “Ocean’s Twelve,” Julie Taymor’s “Across the Universe” as well as lending his voice to Jerry Seinfeld’s “Bee Movie.”

Tickets and information are available at the Mondavi Center ticket office by calling 530-754-2787 or 1-866-754-2787 or visit MondaviArts.org.
