Russell Brand is all set to re-join the digital party happening on Netflix. The British actor has signed a deal to bring a comedy special called Re: Birth. Russell will be recording this show, during two live shows at the Hackney Empire in London, England on April 18 and 19.
He is currently touring the show, which has a total of 75 dates, which will end in November 2018. Besides that, much of the content of this venture will be around his young daughter which may explain the title of the comedy special. He has a 15-month-old daughter Mabel with wife Laura Gallacher.

Prior to this, Netflix roped in other well-known celebrities for comic series – David Letterman (My Next Guest needs No Introduction), Joel McHale (The Joel McHale Show Starring Joel McHale) and many others.
Netflix is also trying to change the way how the digital entertainment game is played. TheDigitalHash.com has already covered how by releasing The Cloverfield Paradox, two hours after releasing its trailer during the Super Bowl LII game on Sunday.
I am sure even as we are typing this that talented brains at Netflix are trying hard to put together a ‘never before thought’ content strategy. Hope other streaming services are looking to match the unbeatable work spirit at Netflix.
