Following a series of sold-out preview shows in November and December 2016, Russell Brand announces a new stand-up tour of UK and Ireland.
What is real? Who are we? Where did this baby come from?
In RE:BIRTH, Russell Brand wrestles with these questions while unravelling the matrix of modern media, politics, sex, fatherhood and death. Join one of comedy’s fiercest talents as he tries to make sense of life having just made a new one.
Russell, re the show:
“How do we make sense of the madness of our lives once we become parents? What am I going to tell my daughter about conformity and responsibility? What happens if she grows up to be like me or, worse, date someone like me?”
“Arena-level stand-up that asks us to think as well as laugh” – The Guardian
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.
“One of the most impressive sights of the comedy year” – The Telegraph
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.
RE:BIRTH will begin in April 2017 and visit every corner of the UK and Ireland, finishing in November 2018.
Tickets for RE:BIRTH go on sale 10am, Friday 3rd February 2017. For a full list of tour dates, more information and to book tickets visit russellbrand.com
