RUSSELL BRAND: MESSIAH COMPLEX

BBC Worldwide secures global rights for Russell Brand’s first- ever world tour DVD release

DIGITAL DOWNLOAD RELEASE: 18TH NOVEMBER 2013

DVD RELEASE: 25TH NOVEMBER

Comedian, actor and author, Russell Brand returns to the BBC with the DVD release of his first-ever stand-up world tour – Messiah Complex – available to own on DVD and digital.

Russell Brand’s sell out global tour began in the US, including dates in the UK and all around Europe, visiting over 20 different countries with a massive 115 shows.

Bringing his unique, out spoken and above all funny observations to his latest stand up show, Russell Brand continues to ask the questions that nobody else does. As the Guardian said in their 4 star review ‘it’s great to see arena-level stand-up that asks us to think as well as laugh’.

Recorded live at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, Russell questions the value of heroes and leaders.  ‘Messiah Complex’ is a disorder where sufferers think they might be the messiah. Did Jesus have it? What about Che Guevara, Gandhi, Malcolm X and Hitler? All these men have shaped our lives and influenced the way we think. Their images are used to represent ideas that often do not relate to them at all. Would Gandhi be into Apple? Would Che Guevara endorse Madonna? Would Jesus be into Christianity?

He concludes it’s all a load of old rubbish and encourages the audience to stop voting, ignore advertising, look to the transcendent within themselves and others…. and kick over some bins on their way home.  Plus there’s sex. Obviously.

Messiah Complex will be available to own on digital download from 18th November and BBC DVD for 25th November 2013.
