Wedding day speech nerves for Russell Brand

Comedian Russell Brand admits to wedding day speech fears

Russell Brand, one of Britain’s funniest and most audacious comedians, has admitted to worries over his wedding day speech.

The comedian, who is due to marry singer Katy Perry, admitted his wedding day speech nerves in an interview at the weekend.

As if that wasn’t enough, Brand was also recently named the world’s worst-dressed man in showbiz. An online poll by saw Brand receiving some 31% of the vote. That’s some accolade.

The source of the wedding day speech nerves problem seems to be the Perry family. Katy Perry’s father is a Christian minister–adept and well-versed in public speaking, saying the right thing and keeping on message.

And the problem? Brand is a fluent comedian with a knack for definitely saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, which makes him very funny…and calamitous at times.

This wedding day speech could be a total hoot…or it could all go very pear-shaped. No doubt he can free up some time in his current book signing tour for some speech rehearsal.
