Just For Laughs is thrilled to announce that British actor and comedian Russell Brand will be hitting select Canadian cities this summer! Don’t miss Russell with his brand new live show in Toronto on Thursday, August 22 at The Sony Centre at 8pm.
Since exploding to US stardom in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, British actor and stand-up comedian Russell Brand has established himself as one of the comedy world’s true heavyweights. However, before hitting the big screen, Russell toured throughout the UK, Australia and the US, and released three stand-up specials: Shame (2006), Russell Brand: Only Joking (2007), and Russell Brand: Scandalous (2009). Russell has also hosted both the MTV Movie Awards and the MTV Video Music Awards (twice).
The star of such box office hits as Get Him To The Greek, Rock Of Ages, Arthur, Hop, Bedtime Stories, Despicable Me and The Tempest, Brand can currently be seen hosting his wildly popular unscripted late-night series, Brand X on FX Network, which was recently renewed for a second season. Brand has also written two books, the New York Times bestseller My Booky Wook: A Memoir Of Sex, Drugs, and Stand-Up, as well the follow up, My Booky Wook 2: This Time, It’s Personal.
He is currently in pre-production for Paramount Pictures’ The Hauntrepreneur produced by Michael Bay, and is slated to star in Diablo Cody’s directorial debut later this year, which though untitled, probably won’t be Juno 2. But don’t quote us on that.
