Russell Brand takes time out from his hectic schedule to contemplate the world around him. Supported by archive footage and his own personal reminiscences, Russell acts as guide as he discusses seemingly generic topics, makes phone calls to unsuspecting targets and features in specially shot segments.
In series one, over the course of six weeks, the comic delved into an eclectic mix of topics including love, childhood and holidays.
Now, fresh from Hollywood success, Brand returns with a new five-part second series. He will be providing his unique perspective on subjects such as pets, education and family in this new series, plus there will be more phone calls and VTs which uncover odd characters and unlikely heroes.
