LOS ANGELES, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Comedian, actor and author RUSSELL
BRAND is embarking on his first ever world stand-up tour, MESSIAH COMPLEX.
Keeping in line with Brand's comedic style, the Live Nation produced tour will
be a dissection of various social and religious figures and the reality of
their lives through comparisons of each other. MESSIAH COMPLEX is a mental
disorder where you think you 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? All great
people are flawed, all of us flawed people are capable of greatness and for
every identifiable icon there is an anonymous mob of unrecognized bods doing
all the admin and heavy lifting. This show looks at the importance of heroes
in this age of atheistic disposability. Plus there's sex. Obviously. Brand
states, "I am going to tour The World (our one, Earth) with Messiah Complex,
causing bother and excitement and offering opinions that have not been either
solicited or thought through."

Beginning his career as a stand-up comedian, Russell Brand shot to fame in the
US when he was seen as rocker 'Aldous Snow' in the Judd Apatow produced
comedies "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Get Him to the Greek." Brand was
recently seen as the host of his own late night talk show, "Brand X," and can
soon be seen in Diablo Cody's directorial debut "Paradise." Brand's other film
credits include "Rock of Ages," "Arthur," "Bedtime Stories" and "The Tempest."
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
