Russell Brand sweetened up fans at his Theatre Royal show by handing out cookies and spending 'the entire interval trying to meet everyone'.

The comedian performed in Norwich on Monday night as part of his 71-date Re:Birth tour and earned 'respect' for sacrificing his interval for selfies with the audience.
