London (ANI): Russell Brand binged on 'drugs and booze' before he went on to give intense and mad performance during drama school production of 'Macbeth'. The comic played the title role in the Shakespearean play, but he made the mistake of getting drunk and popping a handful of pills before being exposed to the live audience.
And boozed-up Brand shocked the viewers with his bizarre portrayal of the Scottish king. "I took a big load of amphetamines, drank half a bottle of whiskey and staggered out as Macbeth. Before I went on, I tried to get myself in the right mood, so I was smashing stuff up in the back room, cut my hands and tried to make myself puke," the Daily Express quoted him as telling a foreign news agency.
"It was bloody stupid because I was sick everywhere. Some people in the audience thought it was brilliant because they liked that I was intense and mad. The people that ran the drama school said ''That's not what we're after''," the funnyman concluded.
