Doing live music night after night is a blast….don’t get us wrong – but I’de be lying if I said that live comedy here isn’t a totally amazing change of pace. Having hilarious Russell Brand here all last summer was such a treat- and we’ve never laughed harder. Not to put any pressure on newbie Bo Burnham, but he has big comedy shoes to fill. With everyone from Pee Wee Herman to Robin Williams (and Russell of course!) taking the stage before him…can he bring it?? He’s a youtube phenomenon and his comedy central special is prettttyyyy hilarious. Musical comedy? I’m intrigued. Click here for tickets!

Perez took the time to chat with our good friend about his upcoming stint as host of this years Video Music Awards. Thanks Russell for the Roxy shout out! Make sure you tune into the VMA’s this SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 7, 2008 on MTV and watch him in action!
But only because he asked us to. It was another sold out show for our favorite Brit..and was it funny!! After the stand up routine, we were all happy to play heckling fans as Russell returned as lovable lothario Aldous Snow as he filmed a few snippets for the upcoming movie “Get Him To The Greek.” Such a fun night – not a dry eye in the house, as tears of laughter took over the room. As always, such a pleasure to work with Team Russell – hopefully we see you all again soon! Also, don’t miss Russell TONIGHT on Jay Leno! Many thanks to some of Russell’s die-hards for taking such great pictures during the show! Check out TINKERBELLA’S photos for some great ones of Russell as Aldous Snow. Stay tuned as we post some of our own later!

Roxy played host on Wednesday to the “Road to The VMA’s” where 3 bands vied for a coveted pre-party slot at the festivities! All star judges The Game, Kat Von D, and Alkaline Trio joined in on the fun and told it how it was! Thanks to U-N-I, Hazelden, and The Ruse for rocking out! Check out the awesome pics courtesy of our good man, Erik Voake.
Team Roxy was so excited to find out that our very own Russell Brand was named as host of MTV Video Music Awards 2008! He’s obviously one of the biggest rising stars and funniest guys around – and we’re excited for him to be slowly but surely conquering the states. His residency here was some hilarious stuff, and we can’t wait to see him on the oh-so-famous VMA’s (with some of our other favs, the Jo Bro’s)! We showed Russell nothing but love, and we are so excited that the Roxy shows are tagged as the ones that caught the attention of the MTV Powers. Congrats Russell! Here are few articles announcing his new gig!
