BEDTIME STORIES

RUSSELL BRAND (Mickey) made his US acting debut in Judd Apatow's comedy "Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” His performance as a rocker with a bad boy's sexual magnetism and his own quirky charm had critics and audiences abuzz.

Brand made his theatrical debut in London at age 15 in "Bugsy Malone” as Fat Sam. An education at Italia Conti Stage School led to a three-year scholarship at the drama centre in Camden where Brand began performing stand-up in pubs around London in his spare time. He reached the final of the prestigious Hackney Empire new act of the year competition and his political rantings caught the eye of Time Out's Malcolm Hay who dubbed him "Essex's Bill Hicks.”

A successful run at the Edinburgh Festival followed, as did an appearance in the final of "So You Think You're Funny?” MTV caught Russell's show at the festival and gave him his own series, "Dance Floor Chart,” and also tapped him to host their flagship teatime show "Select.” When "Jackass” arrived in Blighty, the comedian was afforded the dubious privilege of promoting it for MTV UK.

"RE: BRAND” followed for UK Play. Brand has also been seen in Channel Four's "White Teeth” and the Steve Coogan vehicle "Cruise of the Gods.” He wrote and hosted "The Russell Brand Show” for Channel Four's Comedy Lab series.
