I never really had an opinion on Russell Brand until I attended one of his comedy shows for work and was impressed with his performance. He’s obviously hilarious but what struck me most was his intelligence, something he showed off to devastating effect when he recently appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
As a journalist, I don’t necessarily agree with his constant moaning about the media (people like Russell need the media to publicise their movies, TV shows, comedy tours etc and his aversion to tabloids hasn’t stopped him writing articles for The Sun) but these hosts deserved everything they got. From their unprofessional introduction ‘He’s a really big deal… I’m told this. I’m not very pop cultured, I’m sorry’ to talking about Russell as if he wasn’t there, even I can’t help but side with the celebrity over the media on this one!
