My friend Noreen works as a occasional journalist for a local expat radio station called Radio X. The money isn't great but she gets to interview interesting people and sometimes get free tickets to events.

I got a call from her at 6 last night. She had managed to get her hands on two tickets to see Russell Brand, last night. Dang! I couldn't make it. Himself was working and I had to fetch Cat from swimming and go home and feed the kids etc you know be a good mom.

So after both Noreen & I called around, I managed to get someone who was willing to drive out to pick Cat up,  drop her off at home and make sure that the kids had dinner.  Which means that I flaked out on mommy duty and went to go see Russel Brand.

He was hilarious! Really really funny.

I know he might not be everyones cup of tea but I had tears running down my face from laughing at some points.

I said sorry to the kids this morning for not being home early last night. Oh we don't care they said. What did you do. I told them that I went and saw Russell Band (aka. Katy Perry's ex-husband). What does he do, asked Tiger. Well, he is a stand-up comedian so he tells jokes.

'Awh you have all the luck', he said, 'I love jokes'. 'Yeah, but these were jokes for grown-ups'. 'But I really love grown-up jokes' he said.

I have a couple of photos but the man doesn't stand still for very long so please excuse the quality.

He was asking this lady why she was wearing a dress with a huge cut-out and padlocks on it
When she told him that that padlocks were for safety he told her he things she miss understood the whole thing and if she wanted to keep her chest safe she might not want to wear a dress with a huge hole in it.


  1. I am so JEALOUS! I love Russell Brand! He has me in tears anytime I see him on TV or movies! I'm so glad you were able to work it out to go!

  2. SUPER jealous I would love to go see him!!!

  3. That is so awesome! What a good opportunity.

  4. How fun! You're a great mom so you deserve a little fun now and again - good for you :)

  5. He cracks me up! I would love to see him perform.

  6. I'm so glad you got to see my boyfriend. ;) I'm also so glad you messaged me! I love that when people think of him they think of me. Haha! We weren't able to take pictures in the theater we were in, but I was able to sneak one. It was similar to yours where he was standing with the crowd. I was on an aisle seat, but when he walked by, I totally froze. I should have said something or at least reached out to touch him. I was so starstruck and I kicked myself right after! Haha! He is so funny and thoughtful. I could listen to him speak all day.
