- I like him more and more, but this is brilliant stuff…
Brilliant! I’ve had to totally reappraise my opinion of him. I used to just find him utterly intolerable. A slightly more intelligent and slimmer Chris Moyles.
But now he’s off the smack and got his ego (relatively) in check, he’s genuinely funny, in a refreshingly subversive way.
Question Time should be great! Who’s he on with?Posted 4 years agowartonMember
question time has a great line up tomorrow. The thing is with Russell Brand, is he’s funny, but he’s also got his finger on the pulse of current affairs, and he’s a very clever guy.
He got caught up with the whole fame game, Katy Perry nonsense for a bit, but now he’s come out of that he’s back to being a very funny comedian.Posted 4 years agoteamhurtmoreMember
Not normally a fan, but that was funny. QT could be quite funny. How much will Brand wind Phillips up. Will Boris be outshone and how will he respond? Good job it’s not a serious program!
How many years us it since Willie Bradt died? Wa that who they were confusing Russell with?Posted 4 years agoedhornbySubscriber
are you really impressed by that? I thought it was the same old gobby Brand using volume, mild agression and a lack of right to reply to control others, he never answers a question about himself
did you see him in front of the select committee on treatment for class A addicts? he was properly challenged on his opinions and at the end was virtually chucked out; because he didn’t dominate and wasn’t happy about it he was trying all kinds of attention seeking tricks to keep himself in the seat and carry on until he got his own way which he didn’t…Posted 4 years agomickolasMember
edhornby and TuckerUK +1.
‘shaft grasper’? yes. what wit. 🙄
fair enough he was upset that they didn’t know who he was (he was their guest after all), but his behaviour and ‘brand’ of humour (see what I did there?) shows up the british ‘comedy’ fan. after all, they in the US will believe he is representative of british talent.
other than a penchant for rudeness, he could quite easily be called russell ‘bland’ (oh my gosh, I’m on fire!!!)Posted 4 years agoathgrayMember
Most people might not be on great form infront of a Select Committee. I know I might struggle. Russell Brand is not a performing monkey. The delivery shown in the post is typical of him and should come as no surprise. His style is funny but I imagine he may not be the best listener in tricky situation.Posted 4 years ago
I also reckon he may have had a ‘chat’ with the presenter after the show.
