The controversial comic, known for tackling taboos and poking fun at politicians will be heading back to Norwich Theatre Royal this summer.

Russell Brand is set to bring his new show, Re:Birth, to the stage in Norwich on June 19 as part of a 71-date UK and Ireland tour.

Re:Birth will see the comedian tackle a range of questions such as How do we make sense of the madness of our lives once we become parents? What am I going to tell my daughter about conformity and responsibility? What happens if she grows up to be like me or, worse, dates someone like me?

John Bultitude, of Norwich Theatre Royal, said: 'Russell's previous visit back in 2014 was a fast-selling show and we are expecting more brisk box office business on his return.

'Friends of the Theatre will not miss out on enjoying his unique comedy style as we'll be keeping a proportion of seats off sale just for them until our new season is announced in a few weeks.'
