I wouldnt expect Russell Brand to be able to count the number of shoelace he had in his shoe.
And I don't normally like the humour of people from Britland.
But he has his moments and can be damn funny. Maybe I'm a bit biased though because I really liked Get Him to the Greek.

I liked him in Rock of Ages.

He's actually a very intelligent, well-spoken individual.

*I'm not saying it was comedy.....but it was comedy,* guy?

I like RB more and more.

I have trouble accepting anyone who says "togever" is well spoken.

Hey wow, I find the guy annoying at times when he's not reading a script, but he just happens to be right about what he said in that clip.

What if we asked someone that is actually funny?

I find the guy's comedy hit or miss, but he is obviously quite intelligent.

Also, Get Him to the Greek was damned funny if you ask me.

/who asked me?

I agree with this completely. Aside from the bit at the end when "Chip" couldn't get away from him fast enough. He is very educated and well spoken. Could you see our fark love of Ms. Lohan ever being able to hold up that kind of reasonable / rationale in front of a hearing? One word answer: Nope.

abstruse, good word. Had to look it up.

Propensity for verbosity.

Watched the Monty Python documentary series on IFC Christmas day, and he was in it. It was a strange feeling agreeing with someone I loathe

Isn't he like the British Dane Cook? Not funny at all but for some reason very popular?

I think there's a good chance Russell Brand is more likely to be funny to other intelligent people. I'm sure it's not a cut and dry "all intelligent people find him funny and all unintelligent people don't" but I think there is a strong correlation.

There are also a lot of people that are immediately put off by his appearance and behavior. He isn't "normal". And of course the disconnect for people that have trouble deciphering his accent. But when he actually gets through to you, it's tough to deny that his outlook on life and his observations of the people around him are not only spot-on, but can accurately be described as absurd.

And that's the entire point of his humor. If you can look at the world as an outsider, and see what passes for "normal" to most people for what it really is. Then it's just funny, no work involved in "making" it funny. His job is entirely based on altering your perspective, not of creating humor.
