If you have ever wanted to see a talk show being broadcast from the stall of a men's room, now just might be your chance. Russell Brand has been given his very own talk show here in the US. The show which will be eight episodes in length is a result of television executives falling in love with Russell.
I like Russell Brand, but being a good talk show guest doesn't necessarily translate into being a great talk show host. If this were the case, then Richard Simmons would have about 20 Emmy's and 20 years as a talk show host. Don't believe me? Go look at old Letterman clips when Richard Simmons was a guest. Hell of a guest. Would make a lousy talk show host. You just know that at some point, the camera would get just a little to close to those short shorts and an entire generation of people would be frozen in place.
"Don't know what happened to him ma." One day he was watching the television when the crazy dude came on. The camera crashed to the ground and the next thing you know, pa was screaming that his eyes had been burned. He hasn't blinked since."
