Russel Brand

Comedian and would be leader of the revolution Russell Brand has been forced to cancel a show he was due to perform in Johannesburg tonight, apparently after South African authorities refused to let him into the country.


The issue reportedly arose because of problems with Brand’s passport.

The performer was due to kick of the South African leg of his Messiah Complex tour, but has had to postpone his performances in the country until the situation could be resolved. “We apologise to Russell Brand fans for the inconvenience and for this unexpected and disappointing last-minute change. This only affects tonight’s show. The remainder of the SA Tour will go ahead as scheduled,” Brand’s PR company said.

Naturally, once the Twittersphere got hold of the news, everyone felt that it was the right time channel their own inner comedians. We’ve rounded up some of the best efforts for your general amusement.
