Russell Brand, king of controversy, is on his way to the Olympia Theatre and will have you bursting with laughter at his loquacious comedy stylings.
Russell first became notorious as a TV presenter, appearing in madcap documentaries and on unravelling MTV shows. Temporarily, his career was driven off course by drug addiction, but once in recovery, he proved unstoppable.
He brought filthy double entendres to Big Brother’s Big Mouth, a Big Brother spin-off which saw his popularity explode. Major film roles and sell-out stand-up shows ensued.
Alongside the funnyman persona is a determined political and social mind; over the years, Russell has increasingly imbued his debauched comedy with socially conscious and progressive ideas.
Russell recently became a father, inspiring this show, Re:Birth. Expect to hear Russell’s entirely new worldview through his elaborate wordplay and verbose wit.
There’s no comedian quite as conflicted yet hilarious as Russell Brand. At once urgent but frivolous, his comedy is fast-paced, witty, and searing. It will stay with you long after the curtain has fallen.
