Russell Brand Poster

Russell Brand

May 29, 2020

With his Pre-Raphaelite halo of raven curls, Puck-like sense of mischief and charismatic command of the English language, comedian Russell Brand is one of the most recognizable and well-loved stand-up performers in the world. Born and raised in the English county of Essex, Brand's rebellious teendom parlayed into drug addiction in his early adulthood, a subject that informed many of his first candid, confessional-style comedy shows. No stranger to controversy, his party antics, Hollywood rock-star life-style, and lothario reputation were underpinned by a keen sense of self-deprecation and the ability to skewer his own flamboyance, making for erudite routines that never shied away from the taboo.
