London: British funnyman Russell Brand was forced to halt a stand-up gig in Hollywood after suffering from a migraine attack on-stage.

The ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ star was performing a low-key show at the Comedy Sportz Theater when he started to feel sick halfway through, reported Daily Mirror.

After requesting for some painkillers, Brand powered through and overcame nausea to complete the 90-minute set - but he was upset at himself for the disruption.

"I have a terrible pain. I need painkillers. Sorry about this. I feel nauseous now. I feel sick. I`m worried this might be the early stages of a migraine. I get this light disruption thing. I think I`m such a professional showman this is beyond ridiculous stopping to take medication," Brand said.

The actor, who recently split from wife Katy Perry, also said he`d recently become "disenchanted" with fame.

"I`m disenchanted and disillusioned with fame. Because the only thing we have is each other and our connection to each other and we are constantly being distracted from that because it is meaningless and has no value - and I started to realize that and wanted to do something valuable and truthful," Brand said.
