Messiah Complex is the most recent stand up special by Russell Brand. In true Russell Brand fashion, he pokes fun at his own narcissism while discussing the absurdity of celebrity obsession. Most notably, he compares himself, with almost convincing arguments, to four of his heroes: Che Guevara, Malcolm X, Gandhi, and Jesus Christ. Each story offered results in more laughs. Not just tiny chuckles but those full belly laughs that result in tears streaming down your face. As always, he leaves you thinking and the next peek into his adventures.
Messiah Complex is currently streaming on Netflix. Personally, I've watched it four times.
