When Russell Brand stopped by the Rolling Stone offices this week to celebrate his new cover story and the release of Get Him to the Greek, we grilled him on his lowest moments — and were unsurprised to discover the raunchy U.K. comic can find the humor in run-ins with pimps, broken glass, crack and a heckler (who turned out to mean no harm). Read our cover story in All Access now, plus check out video from Brand's racy photo shoot and our exclusive online Q&A. Watch Brand run down his five closest brushes with the reaper in the video above.
