Russell Brand Discusses Larry King’s ‘Bizarre Dinner Party’ [AUDIO]
Author, actor and comedian, Russell Brand visited “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to chat about his upcoming serious leading role in Lamb of God, and to answer comical accusations of stealing Shawn King’s underwear.
Russell has very been busy, but “next year I’m spending some time with the Mrs., then I’m doing a movie. It’s a serious movie. It’s from Diablo Cody, the Oscar winning writer of Juno, she’s written and directed it. I’m very excited about it.” He went on to explain his qualifications saying, “I trained as a serious actor so I did Shakespeare back in England. But you know me I like ‘mucking’ around so when it starts I might want to do a joke.”
But what are these panty pilfering accusations? Russell defends himself by saying, “Larry King was naive enough to invite me into his home. There was a bizarre dinner party being made into a television show with Quincy Jones, Tyra Banks, Seth MacFarlane, Conan O’Brien, Shaquille O’Neal, and me. It didn’t seem normal to me. So to ground myself, and the only way to make sense of the situation was to sneak away and steal his wife’s underwear. Then conceal it about my person, and later Larry asked, ‘Russell, what keeps you up at night?’ to which I responded, ‘I’ll tell you what keeps me up at night. These!’ and held up his wife’s panties!”
Russell also explained to ‘Roger The Security Guard‘ that he will be hosting Love X-Change with Sarah Silverman on Sunday, December 11th at Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theatre (3790 Wilshire Blvd). In lieu of payment for tickets, Brand is asking that every attendee donate two hours of service to one of the following six charities: Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, Rootstrikers, Friendly House, The Art of Elysium, Los Angeles Food Bank, or Los Angeles Animal Alliance.
Russell proclaims, “You get two hours of comedy for two hours of community service! We’ve cut money right out of the equation!” Fans can sign on to Russell’s Facebook page, click on the charity they wish to donate their time to, and in exchange, they’ll receive a ticket to the show.
