Outspoken comedian Russell Brand has admitted jumping over a ticket barrier at an English railway station to avoid paying a train fare.

The millionaire funnyman, who has called for a revolution to overthrow Britain's financial elite, made the admission during the recording of a podcast on Thursday (17Apr14), saying he simply couldn't be bothered to pay for a ticket.

He said, "From someone that's gone from no wealth to wealth, I know that money doesn't make me happier. Like I jumped the train yesterday when I had to go to Chelmsford (in England). I could have got a ticket but I couldn't be bothered with the rigmarole of getting one. I realised all I had to do was get over a barrier so I did that and then slid out the other end behind someone."

A spokesman for the Greater Anglia rail network, which runs the train Brand travelled on, declined to comment on the comedian's confession, but said, "We take fare evasion very seriously as it is in the interest of everyone that travels."
