The much maligned comedian Russell Brand appears for one night only at the Soho Theatre, trying out new material in the intimate theatre downstairs. Forget he insulted one of British comedy's national institutions in Andrew Sachs; forget he writes a really dire football column for The Guardian; forget he wears ridiculously skinny, low-cut jeans, styles his hair like Worzel Gummage (on a good day) and sleeps with most of the female population he comes into contact with (including Manuel's grand-daughter...). Brand is actually quite a funny man. Having made slight ripples in Hollywood with a string of films, Brand returns to his natural habitat - stand-up comedy - and it is clearly what he does best. Insightful, irreverent, topical, erudite and at times plain stupid - Brand's brand of rambling, associated thought and chatter takes a bit of time to get used to, but pays strong dividends. His array of comedic voices, exaggerated gestures and archaic vocabulary never fails to entertain, while he is not afraid to hold any punches.

 

About Soho Theatre

The Soho Theatre Company was formed in 1969 by Verity Bargate and Fred Proud, but it didn't have a permanent home until 2000, when its current Dean Street location opened. This modern space was the first theatre to be built with National Lottery money. More about Soho Theatre
