Sunday Share

I read a lot of interesting articles on the internet, and sometimes share them on Facebook.  So I thought I would start to share on my blog those I think worth reading.

This is one by Russell Brand.  When he first started out in stand-up comedy I didn't like him or his humour particularly.  I have learned so much more about the man since then.  The article by this intelligent and articulate man is brilliant, and sums up everything I believe.

  1. I must journey to the URL and have a read. I am glad he has something between those ears and I should be pleased to discover it may be some high value grey matter. Up until this point I thought the man was a complete moron. I'll return after I've read it with my further thoughts..

  2. Gosh, his ancestors really did climb down from the trees much earlier than I thought and they sent him to school much earlier than I imagined, and no primitive grunts anywhere!! LOL. Quite impressive and I guess I will give the lad a second chance along with Jonathan Ross.

  3. I'm like you - I couldn't stand the man but in the past year I've completely changed my opinion. He interviews with Paxman are inspirational and his articles in The Guardian are extremely well written.

    1. Totally agree BtoB. He doesn't suffer fools gladly either. Did you see this video from last June when he disrupted an interview on MSNBC?

  4. I'm another who couldn't stand him and thought his jolly jape with Jonathan Ross disgraceful. I'm glad to see he seems to have grown up and has written a lot of very good sense here. The tabloids really do stink!

    1. I didn't like him and when the Jonathan Ross incident took place, I liked him a whole lot less. However, like you say Perpetua, he seems to have grown up. Shame he hadn't shown his intelligent side a lot sooner xx
