Russell Brand & The Dalai Lama

Russell Brand & The Dalai Lama
The Dalai Lama and comedian Russell Brand formed an unlikely double act on Saturday as an audience of youngsters was enlightened and entertained.
Brand was master of ceremonies at Manchester Arena where the Dalai Lama addressed several thousands youngsters on the theme Century of Dialogue - Stand up and Be the Change.
The funnyman-turned-movie star had said before the event that he presumed he was asked to compere proceedings because they wanted him to be funny.
He did not disappoint the crowd of mainly under-25s - who were given free entry - as he also hosted a question and answer session on stage and obviously created a good impression with the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. Please watch the short video & read the rest of the story at the ITV site.
