Time Out says

Explore self-destruction, spirituality and getting well with this complex comedian, author and activist

When you think of Russell Brand, you may still conjure an image of an off-the-rails larrikin, spurting confused political prose, getting high and breaking Katy Perry’s heart. And sure, that may be the persona he often portrays in films like Get Him to the Greek, Arthur and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but Britain’s wild child has had an evolution of sorts in recent years.

Brand has travelled the long road of addiction and it appears he has come out the other side with plenty to share about wellness, spirituality and change. This will be the focus of Recovery Live, rather than the hot social topics and punchlines of his earlier stand-up comedy career. There isn’t a lot of information available about the 90-minute show, other than that it details Brand’s recovery process. Perhaps there will be some funnies, and perhaps a few references to his memoirs (from the 2007 My Booky Wook to his 2017 bestseller, Recovery: Freedom From Our Addictions), but there’ll definitely be some big discussions about drug use and mental health.

Tickets are available from 9am on December 16.
