This week in our print edition, Gustavo Turner interviews Eddie Izzard, the Brit comedian selected to be the first standup comic ever to perform at the 17,000-seat Hollywood Bowl alone.

How will that work in this huge venue? From the article:

“I think the backseats are gonna have the best view,” Izzard, on the phone from the noisy streets of Paris, says enthusiastically about the Bowl's notorious cheap seats. “I actually went out to the back and I sat and watched from there. There's no stand-up comedian that played a solo show at the Bowl, so I think the backseats are gonna be the best ones 'cause you're gonna see the gig, and also see everyone else there.”
