Last night I watched Comedy Central’s new Russell Brand special, Russell Brand Live in New York, and it was just fantastic. I admit I’m on a bit of a Russell Brand kick at the moment, having just re-watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall (fabulous flick!) last weekend. Anyway, you know how Comedy Central reruns all of their programming about 150 times a week, so even if you missed it or forgot to set your DVR, I’m sure you can catch it again. And you really need to, because Russell Brand is comedy genius: right up there with Lewis Black and my recent new-love, Demetri Martin. Not only is Brand eccentric as hell, a sharp dresser and gorgeous to look at, but he made me laugh out loud for solid hour that I never ever ever ever wanted to see end. My favorite parts were when he was reading his hate mail (so hilarious) and when he was making fun of American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, because she’s a misinformed, anti-choice cow who needs to shut her mouth. Today I went on Amazon.com to find a copy of Russell’s book, My Booky Wook, but apparently it is not yet available to purchase in the US, because we suck. Somebody please get on that will you? Russell, I love you – please stay awesome and never surrender!
