Comedian, actor and author Russell Brand will bring his first world stand-up tour to Tampa in September.

The "Messiah Complex" tour is described as a "dissection of various social and religious figures and the reality of their lives through comparisons of each other." The show, billed for mature audiences, is at 8 p.m. Sept. 20 at the Straz.

Brand's film credits include "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Get Him to the Greek" and "Arthur." He also was tabloid fodder during his 14-month-marriage to pop star Katy Perry.

Brand was on the New York Times best-seller list with "My Booky Wook: A Memoir of Sex, Drugs and Stand-Up." He followed that with "Booky Wook 2: This Time It's Personal."

Tickets start at $35 and are available by calling (813) 229-7827 or 800-955-1045 outside the Tampa Bay area, in person at the Straz Center ticket office, 1010 MacInnes Place, Tampa, or online at www.strazcenter.org.
