Russell Brand: FX Late-Night Series Host!
Russell Brand has signed a deal to host a six-episode late-night series for FX!
The half-hour show will feature the 36-year-old comedian’s “take on current events, politics and pop culture” and “will be taped in front of a live audience and feature interactive components with those in attendance,” THR reports.
“I am so excited I’m on the point of climax, in fact I will put the ‘O’ into FX, which spells Fox, which is actually the channel’s real name,” Russell joked in a statement.
“That’s the only thing that worries me about all this to be honest. At least I’ll be able to have a Christmas drink with Bill O’Reilly,” he added.
