Russell Brand heads to Hamilton

Russell Brand, will perform his show 'I Am a Walrus' in Hamilton on 26th November.

In Britain, Brand's parallel careers in stand-up, radio and television made him a national star in the 2000s. He went global late in the decade as Hollywood took to his off-beat charms and cast him in movies such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him To The Greek, Arthur and, most recently, Rock of Ages.

The heroin, alcohol and sex addictions of his earlier years have all fuelled Brand's comedy and his writings - he's penned three memoirs, starting with 2007's My Booky Wook.

He's also become a tabloid staple on the both sides of the Atlantic, most recently for his short-lived marriage to pop star Katy Perry and his reported fling with Spice Girl Geri Halliwell after both performed at the London Olympics closing ceremony.

His Brand X American television show is about to start screening here on Comedy Central.

Tickets for the Hamilton show at Founders Theatre will be on sale from Ticketek on October 26.
