    Glad FX is there to give good comedians a shot at edgy shows.

    And here's where everyone adds to their hatred of me....

    I like Russell Brand.

    Have at it.

    I'll definitely check it out. Love the Jim Jefferies. Shame he's an LA guy. One of the best guests on O&A.

    It's ok that you like Brand. I can see why people think he's funny. I just don't.

    I think Brand's problem is that he isn't really a stand up comic and he isn't that great of an actor, but he is just a really funny, interesting, charismatic dude in general. Check out the episode of WTF with Marc Maron that Brand was on, it's awesome. But that doesn't translate that well to stand up or movies. Maybe he should do a podcast, it would probably immediately be the biggest one, and might end up being really good.

    I think you're right. I actually liked his opening at the MTV movie awards, it was just him riffing, and I thought it was funny. Everyone else I know was killing him, they all think he's an unfunny asshole.
