I finally saw the recent interview that was all over the internet and I had no idea it would be so engaging and interesting to watch! So my few thoughts on this:
Firstly Brand as a the social commentator has a lot more potencial, than him being a comedian in my opinion. After this interview I started to watch some other interviews – and from time to time, the man is really on fire.
He brings very clear, focused anger to what he says, I really like that. He has balls to say what he wants and he seems to be fearless in giving his opinions.
About the content – of course, he doesn’t propose any real solutions to the problems he is speaking about – but at least he has some interesting things to point out.
When he is inspired he can really communicate his insights very well and I really envy him his linguistic skills (although I’m not native english speaker, which can be kind of my excuse).
I like how he got Paxman out of his comfort zone finally, after a lot of very offending attitude that he had towards Brand. But at the end – I like them both still.
To sum up – really good spend 10 minutes of my life J
