Russell Brand suggested a 15-year-old should have a sex-themed birthday party more than a decade before being accused of rape and sexual assault.
In a resurfaced 2007 clip from his BBC radio show, “The Russell Brand Show,” the comedian gave inappropriate advice to a teenage caller who needed a theme for her 16th birthday party.
“I suppose you’re 16, you can’t really drink booze yet or any drugs because that’s illegal,” Brand said, per Channel 4 Dispatchers.
“Now, you will be legally allowed to have sexual partners,” he continued.
“I think you should theme the party around legal sex.”
The “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” star also suggested the teen have a vampire-themed gathering to “heighten the mood of danger.”
He also mentioned the idea of a masked ball, which he said was “in its way erotic but in a suppressed, suitable way for a 16-year-old girl.”
Reps for Brand did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Sexual assault and emotional abuse allegations against Brand came to light on Saturday after multiple women — who chose to remain anonymous — spoke out in an exposé published by the Sunday Times and the Channel 4 Dispatches film, “Russell Brand: In Plain Sight.”

The women claimed the incidents took place from 2006 to 2013, with one alleging she was only 16 years old when she had an “emotionally abusive and controlling” relationship with the actor, who was 31 at the time.
She accused Brand of sexually assaulting her by forcing “his penis down her throat” to the point where she choked.
A second accuser claimed Brand raped her “against a wall” at his Los Angeles home in 2012 — five months after finalizing his divorce from Katy Perry.
A third accuser claimed the British comedian-turned-influencer once allegedly tried to assault her while he was naked and she was fully clothed.
“I saw something come over his eyes, I swear to God, like, black, his eyes had no more color, they were black, like the devil. Like a different person literally entered his body,” she told the Sunday Times.
Meanwhile, the “Get Him to the Geek” star has vehemently denied the “litany of egregious and aggressive attacks.”
“These allegations pertain to the time when I was working in the mainstream, when I was in the newspapers all the time, when I was in the movies, and as I’ve written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous,” he said in a video posted to Instagram.
Brand further claimed that all of his relationships during that time period were “absolutely, always consensual.”
“I was always transparent about that then … and to see that transparency metastasized into something criminal, that I absolutely deny, makes me question, is there another agenda at play?” he added.
Since the allegations have surfaced, Brand has been dropped by his talent agency and his book deal has been paused. He was also suspended from making money on YouTube.
