Who Is Russell Brand
Beneath unruly hair that might be home to one or more woodland creatures, fringed scarves, black heeled boots, bushy eyebrows and residual five o’clock shadow there lies a man—Russell Brand. And depending on your taste, Russell is either hilarious or crude and tactless. But either way, he nabbed Katy Perry.
English comedian Russell Brand has a net worth of $20 million dollars, as of 2020.
Born in Essex, England, Russell got his first taste of the stage lights when he starred in a high school musical. Realizing performing was something he had to do, Russell went on to attend drama schools where, instead of focusing on the stage, he developed an addiction to heroin before he was expelled.
Get Him To America
With a secure following in the U.K., Russell headed to the U.S. to test the American sense of humor up against his crude English acts. But more than just test American audiences, Russell stole them in his 2008 role in the romantic comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The European import made such a mark in the film that he was asked to host the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.
The following year, Russell landed his first U.S. Comedy Central special, Russell Brand in New York, as well as releasing his autobiography, My Booky Wook. On the heels of a successful comedy special and book, Russell went on to reprise his Forgetting Sarah Marshall role of Aldous Snow in the 2010 comedy Get Him to the Greek alongside Jonah Hill.
Russell And Katy Sitting In A Tree
But not only was Russell wooing American audiences, he was also wooing a certain American songstress: Katy Perry. After penning a love poem for the ‘I Kissed a Girl’ singer, Katy ditched the ladies and was all about Russell. The two dated for about year before they tied the knot in an intimate Indian ceremony in October of 2010. The couple separated and divorced two years later in 2012, yet the marriage made Russell most welcome in America.
The admitted former heroin and sex addict, bulimic and alcoholic, seems to have made quite the turn around from his substance induced sloppy comedy to raw and funny Romeo.
Defining Quote “Me and Katy’s children, when they’re born in the distant future, will probably develop gills.”
