Russell Brand announces ‘Messiah Complex’ tour

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Russell Brand has a “Messiah Complex,” and he’s taking it on the road.

The British comedian announced Thursday that he’s launching a world comedy tour focusing on Che Guevara, Gandhi, Malcolm X and Jesus Christ. Brand says the show examines “the importance of heroes in this age of atheistic disposability.”

The 38-year-old says he plans to perform in theaters as well as “prisons, drug rehabs … nationalist organizations, Mosques, foreclosed houses, protest sites, Synagogues and in people’s private homes.”

The “Messiah Complex” tour is set to begin Aug. 15 in Abu Dhabi and wrap up Dec. 9 in Iceland.

Brand’s FX show, “Brand X,” concluded last month.
