Yes a few years back I was a huge russel brand fan but he has got old, his humour more stale and his personality ever more infuriating
Fair enough. I appreciate he loves himself, and he knows he does, but i still don't see the arrogance. He loves attention, and has developed a personality which garners it, but when he makes mistakes he handles it well, he doesn't play the victim when he fucks up (gets a lot of material out of it though), and from watching RE:brand and the Jack Keraouc Documentary he did, seems to be a decent, unbelievably honest person.

I can appreciate why people find him annoying though. The first time i ever saw him on some big brother thing he seemed like an enormous twat


Has anyone seen the film, or planning to see it? Or is this thread now for slagging off Brand and the trailer?

my mom wants to see it, so I'll probably go with her

god, how pathetic does that sound?

it looks good, and I like Russel Brand. most of that percieved arrogance is part of his on-stage persona, like Larry the Cable Guy's red-neck-ness. he is that way, because it's his job to be that way. he gets on stage- and he's a douche bag, but in a funny way.

frankly most of his jokes (most of any comedian's jokes, for that matter) are directed at himself- at how big of an douchebag he is, which of course proves he isn't

Have you ever felt so at one with the world, with the universe, with everything that is, that you were overcome with love?

That is reality. That is the truth. What we make of it is up to us.
