When Russell Brand slept with Kate Moss and gazed at her in his bed, he said it was like looking in the garden and seeing Elvis mowing the lawn.
I love poor people … they know where the drugs are
The fling with the model in was just one of the sexual conquests of the comedian — a man with so many notches on his bedpost branf the bed is in imminent danger of collapse. One wonders what the future holds for Brand, the former self-proclaimed heroin addict and lothario with the curious line in mock-Victorian cockney patter.
He made his first official appearance with his new wife, the singer Katy Perry, at the MTV Europe Awards, looking a picture of contentment. The couple had literally hit it off last year when she threw a bottle at him. Brand has become one of those stars, whose ubiquitous presence on every platform — from print through TV chatshows woook film — prompts the feeling that the public should have a right to privacy from celebrities.
Like many of his glitzy contemporaries, Brand has produced not just one autobiography, but two, at the age of The second volume, Booky Wook 2 has recently been brahd. By the time our hirsute hero has arrived at his last saucy romp, the reader is not begging for more, rather that wokk would become a monk, and neither be seen nor heard of again.
Brand tells how during a stand-up tour last year, his staff “competed to see who could bring me the most post-gig girls; they were delivered in giggling gaggles. Nobody is capable of parodying Russell better than Russell himself, of course. Describing his own animal magnetism, he says: Four in Sydney, coffee brown to lily white, a mother and daughter on the coast, and perfectly, given its reputation for incest, two sisters in Devon.
He tells how he was staying in a castle on the West coast of England last year and his entourage brought back 20 girls after a gig — “By 3am it looked like the cover of an album the Rolling Stones never got round to recording called “Crumpet Banquet” or “Floosie Soup”; they were propped up against the mantle or dumped on chairs like plane crash survivors.
Just at the point when you want to turn him off, he produces some insights into this life of “Caligulan excess”. He grates on the nerves, but he is also revealing about the life of a male sex object. Suddenly the picture turns dark: He describes in his book how the fun eventually faded, the lights flickered on the ferris wheel of fame and the carriage creaked uneasily. He felt an overwhelming spiritual emptiness.

A realisation that this life was not for him seemed to dawn on Brand when he was filming his Hollywood movie Get Him to the Greek and he was staying in the same hotel in Las Vegas as the rapper Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs. In the front room of his suite there was a glass cylindrical shower, like a teleportation device, with lights on the ceiling and floor. At the centre of it was a pole for the pole dancers who would routinely be brought back to the suite by guests.
While his constant round of womanising eventually left him empty, he also finds little satisfaction in being a Hollywood film star. His breakthrough came in with Forgetting Sarah Marshall, where he played the title character’s boyfriend.
The comedian jokingly advises aspiring movie stars who want to learn film-making to book themselves into a mobile home trailer park in Ramsgate a dowdy seaside resort in Kent for three months and say the same thing 20 times every morning while caked in make-up.
On the face of it, Brand’s appearance as the tussell of the MTV Video Music Awards last year, where he rose on a concealed hydraulic podium like a deity on a wedding cake, might have seemed like the height of glamour.
Review: Booky Wook 2 by Russell Brand
In one of the most notorious incidents ruswell his career, he had to quit his BBC radio show two years ago after he and Jonathan Ross made a prank call to Andrew Sachs Manuel in Fawlty Towers brannd Ross told the elderly actor in a voice message: While Brand is capable of honest insights, he also suffers occasionally from extravagant self-delusion.
He describes the Sachs incident as the “biggest media event since Princess Diana died”.
And he goes on to describe the prank call as “perhaps the most significant minute of broadcasting in the BBC’s history”. Does it really compare to Winston Churchill’s wartime broadcasts? The wookk ego may grate on the nerves, but Brand’s forthright reflections on the emptiness of fame raise this second memoir above the level of the ordinary celebrity biography. Jacqueline O’Mahoney’s debut Russdll River in the Bookyy riverrun uses the dual settings of and in a story about family secrets and lies regarding the War of Independence and one mysterious woman’s involvement.
