Russel being Russel
19 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off, I would like too say I still don't completely understand the concept of this show. That being said you will either like it or you won't.

I myself am not a huge fan of Russel Brand (Though I did enjoy his work in Forgetting Sarah Marshall), but his show was on after Louie so I decided to check it out. Ehhhhh. It wasn't great nor was it terribly bad. One of those shows that if absolutely nothing else is on then you watch it, not something you go out of your way for. It's just their.

Brand himself makes the show and yet breaks it at the same time. His personality makes for a sporadic, blunt, humorous, and annoying show all at once.

Each episode begins with a topic of discussion. Brand takes it from there with many different comedic views on the topic. Some funny, most not. But what sets this show aside from most is the audience interaction. Brand often walks into the audience to get opinions or he'll just poll them with a system similar to that of AFV. This is not a new concept, but offers the show something different than just an annoying British guy on stage.

All and all I don't think this is a show that will attract a major audience like FX's otherwise fantastic line up of shows or will continue past two seasons. But a show that may just be different enough to attract a cult following.
