ok - only 24 hour cable news could make Russell Brand seem like a reasonable and level headed guy.

/sigh

the sad thing is these twunts probably consider themselves journalists. more guests should point out how inane their patois is. good for Brand.

breakfast television is on a par with reality TV.

Can you blame the hosts?  They were expecting Mr. Utah and instead got a pretty intelligent person who could actually articulate thoughts.  Producers who failed to inform talking heads that they should be ready for a discussion rather than a fluff piece to be fired in 3...2....1....

I'm no fan of his either (though I did like Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and I think he was fantastic here.

They brought him on to mock and belittle him and he turned it around on them.

Screw them!

I'm no Brand fan, but he was right to point out how stupid the hosts were being.  Who brings a guest on and talks about him like he's not there?

Your mom and me: TheJoe03: His stand up sucks to me, but any time I've seen him in an interview I end up really liking the guy. He's pretty damn intelligent.

Find the podcasts of his old free-form radio show.

One of the smartest people in Celebrityland..

fo_sho!: mrjared: I like Russel Brand, but this wasn't the epic slam or whatever it's supposed to be. I have no idea why this is going all viral. It was morning news folks awkwardly trying to engage a comedian. He slightly overreacts to some perceived rudeness, sexually harasses the host, and gets a few laughs...otherwise, meh.

Perceived slight? The host says she has no idea who he is before starting the interview. Kattie Kay calls him by the wrong name and the guy (whoever he is) just comments that he can't understand him cause he talks funny.

They were acting like complete amateurs and he called them on it. Then called the host a shaft grasper.


It makes me sad, because I've seen the British lady front proper BBC US political coverage where she came across quite well, and I had no idea she was actually an idiot.

Lokasenna: Bungles: TheJoe03: Bungles: What I've learned from the comments is that apparently it isn't considered rude by many Americans to refer to someone as he or she when they're standing right there.

As an American, I call bullshiat. If someone referred to me as "he" when I was right there I'd be kind of offended.

But there seem to be a lot of folks in the comments who don't see anything wrong with it. Maybe it's a regional thing?

As a Canadian, I'd be fine with the occasional use of "he" as long as the other people were, you know, generally facing me and that sort of thing. They all seemed to have turned away from him while saying "he" every other sentence.


The only time I'd see it as appropriate is when you're introducing two people: "Aunt Edna, this is Jon. He drives a truck and likes walks on the beach. Jon, this is Aunt Edna. She's a widow who has turned to lesbianism in her dotage".

AdolfOliverPanties: He's quite intelligent.  Some of his written pieces for the Huffington Post are brilliant.  I haven't seen Brand X, and he seems like he would be annoying sometimes, but there is no doubting his intelligence.


He carries himself pretty douchily, but I've read a few of the things he has said or written about fighting addiction, and it's pretty fascinating.  Much more perceptive about how addiction has hurt him, and much better at describing why it can still pull at you than most.

The more I see Brand the more I like him.  He has a simple facade but he is not a simple person.

Mika was rather awkward-hot in that and I got all tingly.


I like RB...he's witty and funny. Can't understand why people dislike him so much.

tribute: It amazes me how crappy interviews with comedians are (see Crossfire v Stewart). You'd have to imagine that the comedian in question would be able to understand current events and such from his past interviews, but no - let's treat him/her like a clown (monkey) and expect, NAY, DEMAND they act likewise.

/Brand is fine in small doses
//Like most comedians


Most comedians are very smart and verbally quick. You will NEVER win a fight with one.

It is wrong to invite a guest to your home, and publicly humiliate them.

That was a fairly interesting interview that quickly turned awkward and never recovered.
