OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Oh, you can do stand-up? That’s cool. But can you do stand-up in several different languages like Eddie Izzard? Izzard is one funny, cultured, cross-dressing dude, which is why he has starred in numerous films and won countless awards for his uniquely intelligent brand of humor. See him perform as part of his Force Majeure tour 8 p.m. Sunday at Brady Theater, 105 W. Brady St. in Tulsa. Tickets are $38.50-$56.50. Call 918-582-7239 or visit eddieizzard.com/gigs.

See the film 5:30 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch Drive. Tickets are $7-$9. Call 236-3100 or visit okcmoa.com.
