It was Brit on Brit Tuesday night on the American network CNN.
Russell Brand appeared on the interview talk show “Piers Morgan." The duo got down to the brass tax of Brand’s temper and sex life.
Yes, the comedian and actor’s temper has wound him up in a bit of trouble in the past and he is employing some self-medicating tactics in order to suppress his rage. Namely a lot of yoga and meditation.
“For the first time in my life I spend more time meditating and doing yoga than I do having sex.” he said. “That’s only because I do a hell of a lot of yoga. And they’re still neck and neck!”
If only we can all be so lucky with our prescriptions…
Also neck and neck lately in Brand’s life is how over with Katy Perry he is. (Or, at least, how over her he says he is.)
While filming an episode of his new standup show “Brand X” on FX this weekend, he reportedly got into a back and forth with a couple in the audience named Curtis and Katy. Well, one thing led to another and the host got onto the subject of his own Katy…
“I've had enough ass-ache from people called Katy in the last year," he said.
Brand’s new show takes the day’s headlines and examines them under the microscope to try to find the “story behind the news.”
“When you read a story in the paper, you think, ‘Whose agenda is this serving?’” he told Piers. “And it’s usually pretty funny.”
“Brand X” air on FX's Thursday night comedy lineup at 11/10c, behind Charlie’s Sheen new ditty “Anger Management.”
