BrandX with Russell Brand features Brand’s unvarnished and unfiltered point of view on current events, worldwide politics and popular culture. Taking on the news of the day like no one else, Brand uses his unconventional sensibility, spirituality, humor and status as a recently transplanted Englishman to get to the bottom of what the news really means. The show will be driven by Brand's interaction with a live audience as he discusses pundits, news makers and activists – many of whom he calls his friends. In addition, former Congressional policy advisor and Harvard University graduate Matt Stoller will appear on BrandX as a political, economic and historical consultant. The half-hour show, produced weekly from a Hollywood night club, will bring an unmistakably irreverent attitude to FX late night.
