Russell Brand is a comedian, journalist, TV presenter and actor. He has won numerous awards including Time Out's 'Comedian of the Year', 'Best Live Stand-up' at the British Comedy Awards, 'Best TV Performer' at the Broadcasting Press Guild Awards, 'Most Stylish Man' at GQ's Men of the Year Awards. The first instalment of his autobiography, My Booky Wook, was a No.1 Sunday Times bestseller. It also won the Tesco 'Biography of the Year' award at the Galaxy British Book Awards.
Reviews of My Booky Wook: 'Candid, funny and moving.' Sun 'How in God's name did the publishers ever get him to sit down and write the bloody thing? Because make no mistake - unlike most celebrity biogs, MY BOOKY WOOK has definitely been written by Brand.' London Lite 'The most talented stand-up comedian to emerge in Britain this decade, Brand combines Eddie Izzard's rare ability to carry a whole crowd along on an audacious flight of comic fancy with the carnal magnetism of the young George Best. Audiences leave a Brand performance not just entertained but actively debauched by his catalogue of erotic misadventure.' Daily Telegraph 'Hilarious, sometimes brilliant, and always indulgent.'
