Russell Brand Calgary Show: British Comedian To Hit The Jubilee Auditorium


Russell Brand is coming to Calgary.

Just for Laughs has announced the British funny man, and former Mr. Katy Perry, will be in the city on Aug. 23 to perform a stand-up routine at the Jubilee Auditorium.

Brand has become a house-hold name following such films as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him To The Greek and Despicable Me but he cut his comedic teeth as a stand-up comic in the U.K. and later in the U.S.

His Canadian tour also includes dates in Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver.

Tickets for the shows range in price from $55.50 to $65.50.
