Win $50 Gift Card and Poster For Russell Brand's 'Brand X' Premiere: [ send to a friend ]
The premiere of Russell Brand's new talk show 'Brand X' is just a week away.
But if you can't wait to watch Brand's unique style of comedy in front of a live audience on everything from current events, politics and pop culture, FX has provided us with a couple of items to giveaway to ease the pain.
Enter now for your chance to win a Brand X Poster (pictured on the right) and a $50 FX Shop/FoxShop eGift Card that you can spend on anything from Simpsons Duff Beer pint glasses, Sons of Anarchy T-shirt to a Modern Family DVD set.
'Brand X' will certainly make for entertaining viewing with the British comedian promising the show will "have an authentic, real relationship with current events."
"We'll be dealing with the news in an irreverent but optimistic way. It's not going to be cynical, not 'Oh, this is the way things are and there's nothing we can do," Brand tells the Los Angeles Times. "It's about 'this is the way things are and there's something we can and must do.' It also has to be funny."
Brand will discuss news and culture with former congressional policy advisor and Harvard University graduate Matt Stoller in the first bit of the half an hour show and mix it up with the audience in the latter.
"Matt comes from the perspective of someone who understands American politics and media and how it works, and I come from the perspective of an electrified Peter Pan Dionysus figure," he jokes.
"He's got this unique outlook," Executive producer Troy Miller says of Brand. "He can look at world politics and compare it to what he had for breakfast."
'Brand X' premieres on June 28 on 11 PM on FX.
