Performing in Auckland for the first time, Russell Brand has been hailed as ‘The most exciting comedian of his generation’ by Time Out Magazine.

Described by the Telegraph as "the most talented stand-up comedian to emerge in Britain so far this decade" Russell Brand shot to fame when he was seen as rocker ‘Aldous Snow’ in the Judd Apatow produced comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Since then, the British star has become an international comedic success.

Past films include Warner Bros. Rock Of Ages, Arthur, Universal’s Hop, Get Him To The Greek, Disney’s Bedtime Stories and Miramax’s The Tempest.

Brand recently wrapped production on Diablo Cody’s directorial debut in Mandate Pictures’ untitled film, previously titled Lamb Of God. The film also stars Julianne Hough and Octavia Spencer and is slated for release in 2013. Brand is currently in development to star in and produce Warner Bros. The President Stole My Girlfriend. Producing with Brand is his Branded Films partner Nik Linnen. This will be the first project by Branded Films. Russell is also in pre-production for Paramount Pictures’ The Hauntrepreneur produced by Michael Bay.

Also an acclaimed author, Brand has written two books, My Booky Wook: A Memoir of Sex, Drugs and Stand-Up, which was on The New York Times best-seller list for five weeks in a row, and the follow up, Booky Wook 2: This Time It’s Personal. For television, Brand hosted the 2012 MTV Movie Awards and the MTV Video Music Awards in 2008; he hosted the MTV VMA’s again in 2009 and garnered the biggest VMA audience since 2004, with nearly nine million viewers.


Beginning his career as a stand-up comedian, Brand rose to fame in the UK in 2003 for his “Big Brother” spin-off, “Big Brother’s Big Mouth.” He has toured internationally since 2006 and has released DVDs from those tours Russell Brand Live, Only Joking and Doin’ Life.

Russell Brand currently splits his time between New York and Los Angeles.

“He can conjure the situational absurdity of a Monty Python sketch in just a few exaggerated pantomime moves and wield the observational wit of Oscar Wilde after an amyl nitrate hit. Brand exudes a Jagger-esque rock star charisma mixed with an undercurrent of David Schwimmer’s ‘Why me?’ neurotic twitchiness”
