Russell Brand At The Beat Museum Tonight

It’s short notice as all hell, but in a couple hours, UK comic and Kerouac documentarian Russell Brand is going to be performing, er, something at the Beat Museum in North Beach at 7pm. Here’s the Beat Museum info; here’s Russell Brand’s BBC UK page with video, etc. My London pal describes to me via email why it might be fun, best in his own words:

Here’s a last minute plug for an event I can’t attend tonight since I’m currently in the UK.

Russell Brand is very popular here in blighty as a comedian, actor, self promoting sex symbol and megalomaniac oddball who will be famous soon in the US due to various movies coming out but is currently a nobody (which he hates)…. so a good time to see him live. Many sensible people loathe him but personally I’m very much amused by his antics. He’s just finishing up a coast to coast road trip making a documentary on Jack Kerouac so he’s appearing at the Beat Museum, not a venue I’m familiar with. I don’t know if there’s still tickets or whether he’s actually going to be funny in this context but if I was in town I’d definitely be going…

Brand looks like a bit of a hesher to me, but it could be fun. Or funny. Or not. Hee.
