The man who described Tony Abbott as “an absolute raving lunatic” is headed to Australia once again. A comedian, film star, TV host, author and wannabe revolutionary, Russell Brand will no doubt deliver his signature mix of politics and profanity when he tours around the country this October.
Coming to the Sydney Opera House as part of Just for Laughs, Brand’s new stand-up show is titled Trew World Order after his YouTube series The Trews. It's described as “a rabble-rousing stab at creating, through the power of the crowd, a Trew World Order.”
The comedian turned political activist has long been a divisive figure in the British media, seeming to actively seek out controversy wherever he can. He’s also been highly critical of Australia’s immigration policy, and recently threatened to try and “gay marry” Abbott while he was prime minister. Now that would be a hell of a show.
Russell Brand also has a sold-out performance at the Sydney Opera House on October 23.
