Russell Brand

We don't even want to know what Brand did with this skull.

Beginning his career as a stand-up comedian, Russell Brand shot to fame in the US in 2008 when he was seen as rocker ‘Aldous Snow’ in the Judd Apatow produced comedies Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek. He brought his stand-up tour, Russell Brand: Scandalous, to the US in 2009. Brand was recently seen as the host of his own late night talk show, “Brand X” and can soon be seen in Diablo Cody’s directorial debut Paradise. Brand’s other film credits include Rock of Ages, Arthur, Bedtime Stories and The Tempest. Also an acclaimed author, Brand has written two books, “My Booky Wook: A Memoir of Sex, Drugs and Stand-Up” which was on The New York Times best-seller list for five weeks in a row, and the follow up, “Booky Wook 2: This Time It’s Personal.”

Keeping in line with Brand’s comedic style, the Messiah Complex tour will be a dissection of various social and religious figures and the reality of their lives through comparisons of each other. Messiah Complex is a mental disorder where you think you might be the messiah. Did Jesus have it? What about Che Guevara, Gandhi, Malcolm X and Hitler? All these men have shaped our lives and influenced the way we think. Their images are used to represent ideas that often do not relate to them at all. Would Gandhi be into Apple? Would Che Guevara endorse Madonna? Would Jesus be into Christianity? All great people are flawed, all of us flawed people are capable of greatness and for every identifiable icon there is an anonymous mob of unrecognized bods doing all the admin and heavy lifting. This show looks at the importance of heroes in this age of atheistic disposability. Plus there’s sex. Obviously.
