Comedian Russell Brand is now in Iceland, and is already endearing himself to the locals.
RÚV reports that Iceland is Brand’s last stop on his Messiah Complex tour. As a part of his act at Harpa Concert Hall last evening, he told attendees that he felt Icelandic Prime Minister Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson looked a lot like British Prime Minister David Cameron. It is not known if this was meant as a compliment or not.
He also reportedly used the volatility of the Icelandic króna and the “Viking nature” of Icelanders as a part of his material. Although having only arrived yesterday, he is making use of the time well – at the end of the act, he was reportedly taken to Vatnsleysuströnd to watch the Northern Lights.
Russell Brand, apart from comedy, has also been outspoken about a number of social issues, including the UK’s drug policy. Most recently, an interview he took with Jeremy Paxman (seen below) has been hugely popular.
