Brand told The Guardian that he is back on the dating scene in an interview last week, but refused to identify his lady love.

The comedian allegedly poked fun at his sex life with the pop singer, joking that he would think about other people while they did the deed. The funnyman performed a small warm-up gig at London’s Soho Theatre on July 31, according to the San Francisco Gate , as a set-up for his Messiah Complex world tour. During the show, he allegedly joked about sex with Perry , whom he married in 2010 and split from the following year. When I got divorced, I considered becoming a monk,” he purportedly said. “When youre a monk, youre not allowed to have sex with anyone. When youre married, its one person. Thats one more than a monk. Its not that different. Id be having sex thinking, Think of anyone, anyone else .'” The London Evening Standard’s comedy writer, Bruce Dessau, confirmed that the comic joked about feeling so “lost” after his split from Perry that he considered embracing monkhood. A rep for Brand could not be immediately reached for comment.
