Russell Brand recently organised his first offline comedy show Brand-emic. The stand-up comedian was believed to take all precautions including social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, Russell Brand broke the rules of social distancing as he was witnessed hugging and standing close to fans for pictures.

According to The Sun, Russell told fans that he had better go because he was flouting social distancing rules. In several pictures, Russell Brand is seen standing close to fans for selfies and also not maintaining the rule of social distance at one metre plus which is mandatory in England.  The set of Russell’s concert was inspired by lockdown as he joked how his performance was almost empty due to social distancing rules, however later, he ended up breaking all the rules.

The report also stated that Russell Brand told the crowd that he wanted to walk off the stage after joking how he poorly attended his show was. Russell's show wasn’t actually poorly attended, he had a socially-distanced audience as required. Despite the photos of Russell Brand breaking the social-distancing rules surfacing online, he posted a tweet talking about his concert being socially distant. He wrote, “What a wonderful night of socially distant, spiritually intimate fun we had. Thanks, everyone at Regent's Park @OpenAirTheatreand all of you that came together”.
