This March 14, 2013 photo released by FX shows Russell Brand, host of the FX series "Brand X with Russell Brand." The British comedian announced Thursday, June 6, that he's launching a world comedy tour focusing on Che Guevara, Gandhi, Malcolm X and Jesus Christ. Brand says the show examines “the importance of heroes in this age of atheistic disposability.” The “Messiah Complex” tour is set to begin August 15 in Abu Dhabi and wrap up Dec. 9 in Iceland.
