Russell Brand was forced to cancel a Canadian show last weekend after being

denied entry to the country last weekend.

Brand, 36, used Twitter to reveal that he was delayed at Canadian

immigration control and subsequently stopped from crossing the border

ahead of a show in Orilla, Ontario, on Saturday.

"Help! I'm gonna

be late for Casino Rama show unless someone can force Canadian customs

officials to let us land in Orillia!… How do you manipulate customs

officials? Wasn't Hitler's father a customs officer? I'm pretty sure he

was… Let me in! I must perform at Casino Rama, Orillia tonight at 9

for 5000 Canadians!," he tweeted.

The Brotosh comedian later confirmed he had been forced to forgo the show. No word has been given on the reason but it is most likely to have been for his previous drug convictions.


Casino Rama show postponed. I'm sorry. I can't enter Canada. We must

abolish the borders between our nations and our minds," he added.

He was deported from Japan back in May this year because of his drug convictions.

In other news, Brand will be the first guest on the new Rosie O'Donnell Show, on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

O'Donnell said Brand was "100% my celebrity crush".

"I became fascinated with him and I Googled everything he ever did and I fell madly in love – I became obsessed," she told Access Hollywood.


said she had since seen him at Los Angeles airport and told him: "I

have been marinating in you, I knew this would happen, you are genius."
