British comic Russell Brand plays MontBleu

British life, pop culture and just about anything under the sun will be up for a roast when comedic actor Russell Brand takes the stage at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa this weekend.

“The evening promises plenty of potty-mouth pranking, self-deprecating barbs and wicked rantings to match Brand’s signature big hair in this one-night-only, laughter-fueled romp on the MontBleu Theater stage,” according to a statement from promoters.

Brand broke out as the debaucherous rock god Aldous Snow in the 2008 comedy “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and his eccentric sense of humor have swept North America in movies, TV shows, as guest host of Saturday Night Live and stand-up acts, according to the statement. Brand also performed in the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games, singing “Pure Imagination” from “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” and The Beatles song, “I Am the Walrus.”

“Once a hard-living actor known for his problems and high-profile relationships, Brand will take the stage, make fun of himself and the world around him while providing wry observations with twists, turns and flights into the absurd,” promoters said.
