NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Ticket Down announces that one of the most entertaining comedians in the world will be traveling to the United States in 2014 with the "Force Majeure" tour. This comedian is none other than Eddie Izzard, who has been touring around the world for more than 20 years. The 51-year-old will be hitting venues across the continent beginning in May with a date at the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C., and is currently set to conclude the tour at the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio, Texas in early July.
For many, Izzard is one of the most entertaining acts in comedy, not only because of his routine, but because of the way he performs on stage. He admits to have dyslexia, which doesn't allow him to write his script before his tours. This makes for a unique experience as there is often "dead air" between jokes, which are filled with verbal tics like "so, yeah." His routine often leads to an entertaining dialogue that bounces from joke to joke, making fans in attendance have to pay close attention to each word.
Izzard broke into the comedy business in the early 1980s and his career was influenced by Monty Python and his typical stream of consciousness delivery of jokes. This is where Izzard developed the inspiration for how he wanted his shows to be delivered and as time has gone on, he has continued to improve on that ability. During his performances, he typically moves around the stage eccentrically and excitedly, adding more suspense to the fans in attendance.
The comedian has also had a stellar acting career, appearing in countless television shows and movies over the course of his career. To the American public, his voice might be known as Sir Miles Axelrod in Cars 2. Over the course of his career, he won two Emmy Awards ("Individual Performance in a Variety Or Music Program" and "Writing in a Variety, Music Or Comedy Program"), both in 2000 for his Dress to Kill film. The film was recorded during a comedy performance in San Francisco. The "Dress to Kill" tour took him around the world and is still one of his popular tours. He has also won two British Comedy Awards, first in 1993 for "Top Stand-up" with Live at the Ambassadors, and then in 1996 for "Best Stand-up" with Definite Article.
The "Force Majeure" tour is Izzard's first full-blown tour since 2010 when he performed on the "Stripped" tour. That tour was critically acclaimed by the fans and the media and was considered one of the top comedy tours being held during this time. The tour began in 2008 and spanned 162 total dates with 84 in North America. Many of the venues he performed at during his last tour will be visited again in 2014 including the Palace Theatre in Columbus, OH; Chicago Theatre in Chicago, IL and the Opera House in Detroit, MI. He will also travel to many of the most intimate comedy venues in the States including the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA and the Murat Theatre in Indianapolis, IN.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud.

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...
