"In his element and a rock-star electricity crackles through the place" - The Telegraph
Returning to New Zealand in October 2015, with his brand new show Trew World Order, superstar comedian Russell Brand has been hailed as ‘the most exciting comedian of his generation’ by Time Out Magazine.
"Yes. That's right. We are all individuals."
Crowd, Life Of Brian
We've been told freedom is the freedom to fulfill our petty desires but TREW freedom is freedom FROM our petty desires.
After a life of individualism and showing off, Hollywood, ruining broadcasting corporations and elections, Russell Brand has decided the only way to change the world is to be part of the crowd.
Collectively, as a crowd, a horde, a mob, we can change the world.
This show is a rabble-rousing stab at creating, through the power of the crowd, a Trew World Order.
"Spellbinding" - Bristol Post
The British star has become an international comedic success on stage, television and film.
Described by the Telegraph as "the most talented stand-up comedian to emerge in Britain so far this decade", Russell Brand shot to fame when he was seen in the Judd Apatow produced comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Other movies he has starred in include Arthur, Get Him To The Greek, and Rock Of Ages. Most recently he starred in the documentary film The Emperor’s New Clothes, which opened in the UK in April.
Also an acclaimed author, Brand has written many books including, 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 Personal, Russell Brand’s Trickster Tales and most recently Revolution. For television, Brand hosted the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, the MTV Video Music Awards and his own show Brand X.
Russell produces his own YouTube web series called The Trews. Started in February 2014 and uploaded every weekday, the channel has surpassed one million subscribers and in April posted its 300th episode.
"He can conjure the situational absurdity of a Monty Python sketch in just a few exaggerated pantomime moves and wield the observational wit of Oscar Wilde after an amyl nitrate hit. Brand exudes a Jagger-esque rock star charisma mixed with an undercurrent of David Schwimmer’s ‘Why me?’ neurotic twitchiness" - LA Times
Beginning his career as a stand-up comedian, Brand rose to fame in the UK in 2003 for his “Big Brother” spin-off, “Big Brother’s Big Mouth.” He has toured internationally since 2006 and has released many DVDs.
“It's quite an achievement to have created a show that manages to be crowd-pleasing and provocative at the same time” – The Guardian
This is the must see show of 2015. Don’t miss Russell Brand on his ‘Trew World Order’ tour this October. Hurry, he will sell out!
