Russell Brand Jokes About Marriage & Sex Life With Katy Perry During New Stand-Up Routine
The comic played a warm-up show in London this week where he made some colourful comments about his sex life with ex-wife Katy Perry
Russell Brand was back on-stage and back freely discussing his sexual misadventures in front of a live audience this week as he prepares himself for the upcoming Messiah Complex tour. Never one to let his well-publicised personal life go by without a few jibes, the comic's pre-tour warm-up show, held last week (July 31) in London, was full of sexual anecdotes and blue humour, and he didn't hold back when it was time to discuss his married life either, freely discussing his bedroom activities with Katy Perry.

Well, it wasn't so much the scale of his and Perry's sexual misadventures that was being discussed, more Brands' yearning for sexual freedom after committing himself to just one woman. The comic compared his monogamous lifestyle to that of a monk living in celibacy, and joked that when he was getting intimate with the beautiful Ms Perry, her would tell himself to "think of anyone else," throughout the love-making.
The comic said, as quoted by Press Party, "When you're a monk, you're not allowed to have sex with anyone. When you're married, it's one person. That's one more than a monk. It's not that different," going on to say, "I'd be having sex thinking, 'think of anyone, anyone else.'"

His comments may have had the audience laughing, but one person who hasn't find Brand's new material particularly funny is his ex-wife Perry. The singer recently told of her humiliation at being the butt of some of his new jokes, also revealing that he revealed his desire to end their marriage via a text message sent on New Years Eve 2011. She told US Vogue last month; "(He was) hysterical in some ways. Until he started making jokes about me and he didn't know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows. So. Hysterical to a point."
The singer's break-up with Brand and her efforts to make the marriage work were documented in her film Katy Perry: Part Of Me, and she went on to discuss Brand's lack of involvement in the film in the interview. She added, "I have to claim my own responsibility in things (that led to the marriage breakdown). I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could. You saw that in the movie... That wasn't edited to leave footage (of Brand) out - there wasn't any footage of him."
