• It should go without saying that Russell Brand is an douchebag of epic proportions, but the idea that nobody’s allowed to make jokes about drugs ever again because some celebrity’s daughter’s sister died of a heroin overdose is idiotic.

    Why are so many women unable to understand that a) comedy isn’t about being nice and b) everything in the world isn’t about them personally?

    My father died of cancer. I don’t take it personally when people joke about cancer.

      Was coming on here to write a comment almost exactly like yours.
      And what exactly does one expect when a comedian is invited to speak at an event? Of course what they are going to do is tell jokes about the topic at hand.

        This was probably one of my favorite parts of his show. Be sure to watch the whole thing to see what actual cancer patients thought of it.

      Show biz types seem to be very touchy. (Not all of them of course).

  • Ed

    He belongs to that class of twerp who feel a strong need to be “consequential,” and imagine that emotional intensity is a sign of authenticity… like Sean Penn. “Asshole” is how it usually works out…

  • It goes without saying that he is an @$$hole. It’s not like anyone on the champagne socialist left DIDN’T know that.

    I find his nasal whine combined with his affected working class accent render him unbearable in any quantity . Why does he always talk through clenched teeth? yes compared to most Brits ,they are loverly but by presenting that way he comes across as totally manic and possibly dangerous. I placed him in total asshole category some time back beside Sean Penn.’

      He’s a junkie, will always be a junkie even if he stays clean.

      I deal with them every single day here in Vancouver.

        cause and effect i guess still those teeth being constantly bared remind me of a cornered rat.

        • lolwut?

          Junkies behave very much like rats and the personality traits of people attracted to hard drugs like Heroin, cocaine and Meth
          don’t really get much better when they manage to stay clean.

          Once a junkie, always a junkie.
