  • The audio clips were released by Dispatches online and are of Brand’s show 

Channel Four’s Dispatches programme has released videos of Russell Brand’s BBC radio show where he joked about a 16-year-old child holding a sex party.

The clips were put out by the broadcaster yesterday via social media and are audio captures of the 48-year-old’s Radio 2 show from 2007.

Brand has been accused of rape and sexual assault by four women following an investigation by Dispatches and the Sunday Times.

He vehemently denies any wrongdoing and went ahead with a gig on Saturday night when the programme was aired.

The newly released clips featured a 15-year-old listener ring in to Brand to ask him what she should do for her 16th birthday.

Brand responds: ’16th party, you’ve had 15 up to now, do you have one every year? But you are 16 years of age?’

She tells him: ‘I’m gonna be in February, but I want ideas.’ 

Brand replies: ‘I suppose you’re 16, you can’t really drink booze yet, or any drugs, because that’s illegal.

’16, right, now you will legally be allowed to have sexual partners. Now I think you should theme the party around legal sex.

‘Why don’t you have it themed around vampires, because I suppose what you really want to do is heighten the mood of like, you’re 16, you’re still essentially a child, but you’re coming of age, I think you want to heighten the mood of danger?

‘So dress as a, let’s say it’s a vampire themed party.’

His friend in the studio suggests a masked ball and Brand excitedly adds: ‘A venetian masked ball, that’s a good idea.

‘In its way erotic, but in a suppressed suitable way for a 16-year-old girl’

Another clip shows him having a conversation with DJ Tim Westwood.

The remaining shows of Brand's Bipolarisation tour were postponed and the Metropolitan Police said they had received a report of an alleged sexual assault in the wake of media allegations about the comedian and actor

Westwood tells him: ‘You’re just hitting a better class of girl right now, you don’t need to call me to hook you up.’

Brand responds: ‘Tim Westwood I never looked at you as a pimp in a literal sense.’

He replies: ‘I think you did, you used to come to my parties and do the crazy frog on stage and catch girls, man.’

A further video shows Brand saying: ‘That’s the policy I use for women… let’s not get bogged down in things like age, race or whether or not they’re awake…’ 

On Saturday, The Sunday Times and Channel 4’s Dispatches reported allegations of abusive and predatory behaviour including rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse said to have been committed by the presenter between 2006 and 2013.

The news comes after the remaining shows of Brand’s Bipolarisation tour were postponed and the Metropolitan Police said they had received a report of an alleged sexual assault in the wake of media allegations about the comedian and actor. 

Brand ‘absolutely denies’ the allegations and insists all his relationships have been consensual.

The scandal has already seen Channel 4 remove all programmes linked to Brand on its website, including episodes of The Great British Bake Off and Big Brother’s Big Mouth in which he was featured. Brand’s PR firm MBC PR and talent agent Tavistock Wood no longer advertise him as a client, and his publisher Bluebird, an imprint of Pan Macmillan, has suspended their relationship. 

Brand has around six million subscribers on YouTube, which earn him an estimated £49,000 a month

The clips regularly touch on conspiracy theories, including the idea that the pandemic, the Ukraine war and climate change distract from the activities of the global elite

And Netflix has now been urged to remove his comedy special, Re:Birth, from its catalogue. 

Brand’s YouTube account has been suspended from YouTube’s Partner Programme ‘following serious allegations against the creator’, meaning his channel is no longer able to make money from advertising.

YouTube added that suspending a creator from the YouTube Partner Programme means they are ‘prohibited from using a new or alternate channel to circumvent our enforcement decision’.

Brand still has a presence on video platform Rumble, where his channel has 1.4million followers and he hosts a weekly live show at 5pm BST, but there was no new episode on Monday.

His most video on Rumble is the short clip from Friday when he denied the allegations against him which were published the following day.

The Rumble channel description reads: ‘Everybody knows that the old ideas won’t help us. Religion is dead. Capitalism is dead. Communism is dead. Where will the answers of the next century lie? Particularly, when we’re facing a mental health epidemic and ecological meltdown.’   

Critics claim Brand has ‘set up a cult’ online to back him since the birth of the Me Too movement in 2017 by giving a platform to conspiracy theories including the idea that the pandemic, the Ukraine war and climate change distract from the activities of the global elite.
