I personally would totally go gay for Russell Brand. He's awesome.

This whole situation is fucking annoying...

Thousands of people crying over absolutely nothing; it wasn't exactly a funny prank, but there was certainly nothing offensive about it, especially when you take into consideration the background of Andrew Sach's grand daughter...

The "offensive" radio broadcast...

Oh yay, the Prime Minister wants some action, too...

Idiots...complaining...how fun!

Wow.
I had totally forgotten about Fawlty Towers. What a great show back then.

That's because they use the metric system.

Or because you need to watch better movies.

I'm completely the opposite. The odds are stacked in favor of me liking him (Pilkington seems to be a gateway drug into the world of Brand), but I can't stand him. I've tried, and every time I come out of Russel's world annoyed and with a headache. Even the Pilkington-Brand radio shows I just can't get through.

Same with Jimmy Carr, but I might need to give Carr another chance (?).

Jimmy Carr was fresh when he first appeared, now he is just really irritating. Russell Brand has been irritating all along.

I can see why people think Russel Brand is irritating, however he is very quick witted and intellectual and some of the points he makes are quite valid.

I started off not liking him and gradually hes grown on me more and more.

I do agree that Russell Brand can be funny, maybe I should have made that more clear, I simply find that his method of delivery / style irritates me sometimes.

so it seems miss bailie is milking this one. she hired max clifford, who set up a lucrative interview with the sun newspaper, in which she poses semi naked and talks about how crap in bed brand is, and other juicy details. not hypocritical or anything?
