Stevenson Welcomes Generous Eddie Izzard to Banff Academy

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, is delighted at the news that world famous comedian Eddie Izzard will be performing at Banff Academy this Saturday and giving half of the proceeds to the local community.

Tickets for the one-off performance are selling fast for the comedian who is currently working in Portsoy on a remake of the Scottish comedy, ‘Whisky Galore’. Mr Izzard has also said that he will donate half of the money made from the gig to Banff Academy and to the Portsoy Scout Hut Fund.

Mr Stevenson said:

“This is a very generous gesture by Mr Izzard – not only will he be performing locally, but agreeing to help out the local school and the Portsoy Scout Hut Fund is fantastic. I hope that everyone enjoys the night and that Mr Izzard returns before too long!”

In 2009, Eddie Izzard completed 43 marathons in 51 days to raise more than £1.8 million for Sport Relief.
