Russell Brand’s thunder was stolen during one of his Cornwall shows as a pod of dolphins swam past the incredible open-air venue he was performing at. The popular comedian hit the stage of the stunning Minack Theater in Porthcurno on April 23 and 24.
His show, part of his ’33’ tour, was interrupted at the beginning as the crowd in the amphitheater spotted several dolphins in the ocean behind him. He recently shared a video of the hilarious incident on his TikTok account which you can watch below.
The video shows people shouting “Dolphins! Dolphins!” and Brand jokingly replying: “Is it going to be like this all night, is it? ‘Dolphins, dolphins!’ Get it out of your system!”

“They’re taking the p**s, aren’t they?” he continued. “When people see a dolphin, I have to put my little ego on f**king hold… for at least 15 minutes.”
His tour was named 33 because Russell Brand believed he’d die at that age. It has been described as “a celebration of our return to freedom and a look at our shared, imposed insanity during the last two years”. The show was in three parts – two comedic and one meditation and included a lot of politics, sociocultural analysis, chaos and laughter, but also at its core, Brand said his show carries a message of deep hope and love for the ‘real people’ of this country and provides a rallying call for systemic change.
Russell Brand’s show is interrupted by a pod of dolphins:
He previously said: “The new show is a celebration of the last couple of years and what’s been revealed politically and spiritually. One, we learned that you can change society radically overnight. Two, we realised that work wasn’t always necessary in the way we were told it had been and three, we can never ever trust our constantly partying government again and that we now have an opportunity for radical, personal and social change.
“We also learn that from our audience surveys, that deep down everyone is crazy and some people will use knickers instead of a face mask at the slightest provocation.”
