Update: If you were unable to catch Russell Brand on tour, check out his new YouTube series, The Trews.

Actor, comedian, and author, Russell Brand has announced his very first world-wide stand-up comedy tour. Katy Perry’s ex will be keeping things in line with his outrageous and quirky comedy style and has named the tour the Messiah Complex. The stand-up act will be a discussion of various “social and religious figures and the reality of their lives through comparison of each other. Messiah Complex is a mental disorder where you think you might be the messiah,” as reported by The Independent.

The show will obviously be controversial and explicit. Brand says he’ll be taking his “tour to Israel, Lebanon and Palestine, performing wherever he is allowed to deliver his show free from censorship.”

Jesus, Che Guevara, Gandhi, Malcolm X and Hitler all shaped our lives and influences the way the world thinks. Did one or all of these men have the Messiah Complex? That’s what Russell Brand is hoping to find out. “I am going to tour the world with Messiah Complex, causing bother and excitement and offering opinions that have not been either solicited or thought through.”
