When it comes to helping the homeless, funnyman Russell Brand has shown that he’s no joke.
Late last week, according to Huffington Post and other reports, the comedian was spotted helping out a group of homeless individuals who live near his West Hollywood home. The 37-year-old ex-hustand of pop star Katy Perry escorted the individuals to breakfast at the Newsroom Café, where they got a nutritious meal.
The star of 2010’s “Get Him to the Greek” helped out another homeless man, in Los Angeles just two weeks ago, offering the man a bath, a T-shirt and a meal. Reportedly Brand then took the man to a gathering of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Brand, a recovering alcoholic, has also struggled with drug use and attends weekly AA and Narcotics Anonymous meetings.
