Russell Brand

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

Russell Brand

I've always found Russell Brand to be a hilarious story teller on talk shows. For some reason, that never translated to his stand-up act, which comes-off as Andrew Dice Clay redux. His strength is improvisation, not delivering a set.

Check out his new show on FX, "Brand X". Obviously Russell Brand is a love-him-or-hate-him type guy, but I find that show hilarious, smart & spontaneous. He has an academic straight man on there as a check against his own highschool-dropout observations.
