Never miss another 'Russell Brand' show
Messiah Complex World Tour: Russell Brand
Outrageous and flamboyant comedian turned actor, writer and radio presenter, Russell Brand heads out with his new comedy show, Messiah Complex.
Messiah Complex is a mental disorder where the sufferer thinks they 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.
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 unrecognised bods doing all the admin and heavy lifting.
Always pushing the boundaries beyond what is both politically and culturally acceptable, catch Russell Brand as he looks at the importance of heroes in this age of atheistic disposability. Plus there's sex. Obviously.
Since rising to fame in 2003, Russell Brand has established himself as one of one of the world’s most celebrated stand-up comedians. His acclaimed tours include 2006’s Shame, 2007’s Only Joking, 2009’s Scandalous (which marked his US live debut) and 2013’s critically acclaimed and hugely successful Messiah Complex, which was also a best-selling DVD.
Aside from stand-up, Russell is also a phenomenally successful broadcaster, actor, author, podcaster, columnist, political commentator as well as a mental health and drug rehabilitation activist.
