Russell Brand is one of our heroes. An award-winning comedian, actor, author, public thought leader, a passionate activist for mental health and drug rehabilitation, Russell is also a great friend.
His career thus far has been incredible, from starting out in his early days as a stand-up comedian, to then working in television, radio, film, while also subsequently becoming one strong voice in global political commentary and drug and mental health reform.
He is someone who now focuses on creating positive change in the world and he is truly one of our heroes.
