MUMBAI: This monsoon season, Live Viacom18 will ensure that Indian audiences cackle, chortle and hoot with laughter as it brings to India the bright & funny and one of the finest names in international comedy, Russell Brand. Organized as part of the second season of the biggest international comedy festival ‘Comedy Central Chuckle Festival' Brand who is also a renowned presenter, author and actor will entertain audiences with his famous one-liners and side-splitting stories. While this will be Brand's first performance in India scheduled to be held across Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore on June 26th, 27th and 28th respectively this will be his third visit to India.

Best known for his satire, whimsy and observational humour along with his comical acts in movies such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, and the voice of Dr. Nefario in Despicable Me 1 & 2. A livewire comedian, he has brought the house down in most of his performances with his unique brand of humour. Far from being a traditional stand-up comic, Brand's audiences engage not only with the lines he delivers on stage but also with the quirky persona he has created. All in all, these three nights are expected to be filled with fun, excitement and rip roaring laughter.

Confirming the news Integrated Network Solution SVP Jaideep Singh said, "Live Viacom18 is in the business of bringing alive unique experiences in all genres of entertainment.
