Eccentric comedian, Russell Brand, took to the stage at the Colston Hall in Bristol on Monday evening for two nights of sold out stand-up comedy.
Comedic poet, Mr Gee, supported Russell Brand and warmed up the audience with his jokes and rhymes. He had the crowd laughing with his relatable jokes and had them reflecting on life with his deep and thoughtful poems.
Brand bought his Messiah Complex world tour to the city of Bristol and without a doubt gave the audience an entertaining show focusing on many powerful leaders throughout history, including Jesus, Malcolm X, Gandhi, Che Guevara and Hitler. Brand argued how he was similar to some of these leaders in the most comedic way possible.
As the funny-man took to the stage he spent time interacting with the audience, especially his female fans. He was giving out hugs, accepting presents and making jokes out of the crowd.
Brand took his geographical location into consideration and attempted his very own Bristolian accent, brought the local newspaper onto stage with him and even mentioned some areas of Bristol.
Russell Brand was a ball of energy on stage as he moved around the stage, carried out imaginary sexual actions (even pretending to have sex with a chair!), and constantly moving throughout the show.
The crowd went wild anytime Brand spoke of Jeremy Paxman after their heated interview on Newsnight last week. If you’ve not already seen the interview, you can watch it here.
The audience certainly got their money’s worth as Brand gave around a two hour long performance.
Russell Brand live is all you could imagine and more. If you get the opportunity to see Brand in action, you will be laughing through the entire performance.
