An hour late, but the show goes on for defiant Russell Brand as he stands up in front of 2,000 adoring fans

Despite the maelstrom of rape and sex assault allegations against him, Russell Brand defiantly turned up to perform his stand-up comic show in front of 2,000 adoring fans last night.

The crowd at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre in north-west London whooped and cheered as the comedian walked out on stage more than an hour late.

Brand, dressed in blue jeans and a blazer, soaked up the adulation.

‘Thank you, I love you. Thank you, thank you. I appreciate you, I appreciate you,’ he said, barely audible over the cheers.

‘Sorry I was late. It actually was because of a f****** traffic jam.’

He asked fans not to film him, adding: ‘I really appreciate your support. I love you. I want to do a fantastic show for you.

‘I’ve got a lot to talk to you about . There are obviously some things I absolutely cannot talk about and I appreciate that you will understand. I love you lot already. I’m going to give you everything I’ve got. Let’s go.’

It didn’t take long for Brand to make a thinly veiled reference to the controversy surrounding him.
