Russell Brand car jeans friends katy perry

The reformed party prince may be married to Katy Perry, and an advocate of AA, but that doesn't mean he can't enjoy a night out in Hollywood with his buddies every now and again!

Russell Brand and pal Brandon T. Jackson stepped out after Russell's show at the Wiltern Theatre in LA -- minus his wifey, who, by the way, drew huge ratings for her appearance on SNL last weekend.

The Arthur star, who hosted the show back in February, gave the "Firework" singer some tips before she tried her hand at live sketch comedy. Perry told MTV news, "My husband, of course, every day I call him and I'm like 'this happened' and he's like, 'I know what that means and here's the next play-by-play for tomorrow,' so he's gotten me really prepared for this week, thankfully."

What did you think of Katy's hosting skills on SNL?
