I first saw him on Big Brother's Big Mouth, and wondered who on earth he was, and was curious about his surreal style of comedy, but as I saw him more and more on TV shows, I got to like him, and I looked forward to seeing him do live stand-up. Russell Brand here plays at the Shepherd's Bush Empire, and at his request he has a gold microphone cord. In this show he is not afraid to admit to or explain many sexual incidents and experiences, he also covers some of his life, and the tabloid press's treatment of him since becoming famous, including an untrue encounter with a certain female celebrity, and the wording of the article. The show is very rude, quite crude and very funny, Brand really knows his audience and what they want. Russell Brand was number 69 on 100 Greatest Stand-Ups. Very good!
