The rock star of comedy, Brit wit Russell Brand, has announced a national tour for November and December.
If you don’t know Russell Brand as the louche and leggy rock star-type who was married to Katy Perry, then you know him as the same character from the hit movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall or the slightly smaller hit movies Get Him To The Greek and Hop and the total flop Arthur.
But if you know him better, Brand has been one of the shining lights of a new generation of UK comedians, with an award-winning, chart-topping memoir My Booky Wook: A Memoir of Sex, Drugs and Stand-Up, a sequel My Booky Wook 2: This Time It’s Personal, and a legion of fans worldwide.
Now Brand is doing his first full national tour of Australia, hitting stadiums in all corners. Tickets go on sale 9am Tuesday 25 September from Ticketek for Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, and Melbourne, and Ticketmaster for Sydney.
