Russell Brand announces tour in support of new book

Monday, 13th Sep 2010

Controversial funnyman Russell Brand is set to promote his second volume of memoirs with a brief tour around the UK.

The comedian and actor has announced details of six dates around the country, starting at the Hackney Empire in London on Thursday September 30th.

According to his website, Brand's show in the capital will feature a live interview with Jonathan Ross - his partner in the 2008 prank telephone calls incident dubbed "Sachsgate".

The other dates in Edinburgh, Newcastle, Manchester, Bristol and Birmingham will include interviews with Brand's former radio co-host and regular sidekick Matt Morgan.

Fans have been promised a chance to quiz the Essex-born star, as each gig will feature an "audience question and answer" session.

Brand's new publication, My Booky Wook 2: This Time it's Personal, will be available from September 30th.

The 35-year-old has mainly been working in the US since his breakthrough Hollywood role in the 2008 comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
