Frank Skinner and Russell Brand

60 minute documentary in which Frank Skinner quizes fellow comic Russell Brand. As well as providing an in-depth interview, the show also gives behind-the-scenes glimpses of Brand on tour.

In early 2009 Brand completed an international tour that featured dates in New York and Australia as well as a number of shows in the UK. The tour culminated with a sell out 17,000 people gig at the O2. During this period cameras were following Russell back stage and travelling.
Combining previously unseen footage of early gigs with the interview, the documentary not only tells the story of the Scandalous Tour but also touches upon Russell's rise to fame, sexual notoriety and first hand experience of the media storm around 'Sachsgate', giving a unique insight into the man himself.
