Review: Russell Brand 'I am a Walrus' Tour 2012
It's been two years since Russell Brand performed stand-up Down Under, and diehard fans will be pleased his new show, 'I am a Walrus', is packed full of fresh material.
Fellow Brit and Brand's longtime poet laureate Mr Gee opened the show with his silky smooth 'G' rated rhymes before the star of 'BrandX' began his 'X' rated show.
A video intro, narrated by Brand's live performance of The Beatles classic 'I am the Walrus' at the 2012 Olympic Games Closing Ceremony in London, teased the topics of the show before Brand took the stage of the Sydney Entertainment Centre on Saturday.
Quickly declaring his single status, frenzied fans screamed with delight as the dapper comic jumped off the stage and wandered amongst the front rows to "make his decisions" before the house lights went down and he returned to the spotlight.
Like catching up with an old friend, Brand told stories of the goings-on in his life over the past two years, quickly and cleverly articulating his mischievous memories.
You'll find out reasons why you shouldn’t perform in the Olympics closing ceremony, who David Icke is, what the Dalai Lama's laugh sounds like, and of course, will be reminded why he won the title 'Shagger of the Year' so many times.
Plus the charismatic comedian stuck around after the show to sign "anything" put in front of him, spurring a stampede of mostly female fangirls to the front of the stage.
Kiwis you’re in luck – you can still catch Russell Brand in the flesh on the last stop of his 2012 Australia and New Zealand 'I am a Walrus' tour this Thursday December 13 in Wellington! Tickets via Ticketek.
