British funnyman Russell Brand joked about his sex life with ex-wife Katy Perry during a stand-up comedy show in London this week.

The comedian performed a small warm-up gig at the British capital’s Soho Theatre on Wednesday ahead of his upcoming Messiah Complex world tour, and he included a number of gags about his marriage to the pop star and their subsequent divorce.

Brand joked to the audience that he considered becoming a monk after he split from Perry, because celibacy wouldn’t be much different to married life.

He told the audience, “When I got divorced, I considered becoming a monk. When you’re a monk, you’re not allowed to have sex with anyone. When you’re married, it’s one person. That’s one more than a monk. It’s not that different. I’d be having sex thinking, ‘Think of anyone, anyone else.'”

The couple split after just 14 months of marriage, and Perry recently admitted she hated it when Brand cracked jokes about her during his comedy shows, telling America’s Vogue magazine, “(He was) hysterical in some ways. Until he started making jokes about me.”
