Russell Brand Gets Upset During Interview

Funnyman Russell Brand flew into a rage after he was questioned about his split from Katy Perry.

The British comedian was promoting his new movie musical Rock Of Ages on The Graham Norton Show when the Irish host asked him about his failed marriage.

Brand looked into the audience at his mom Barbara in the front row, then turned to Norton and accused him of making her tear up.

He ranted, “My mom is here. She got upset when you dragged up my marriage. I saw her cry, Graham. That’s the reality because it’s real people, Graham, that’s my real mom. I have come here to promote a film and you made my mom cry. I don’t see you as that sort of person Graham.”

Norton insisted, “I don’t see myself as that kind of person,” and explained that it would have seemed “weird” not to ask about Perry as she had been a guest on the show last week.

Brand retaliated, “Will people sit and think, ‘Oh, that’s odd.’ What I would have done, mate, in your position is come up to me before the show and gone, ‘Listen, it’s a bit odd that your ex-missus was on last week. I might mention it, is that OK?’ But in all of the chatting and the research backstage, no one mentioned it.”

When Brand finally chatted about his failed union, he said, “Some human beings get married and hopefully it works out for them and maybe it won’t. If people get divorced, maybe that is a sad thing.”

The heated exchange was edited from the episode when it aired on Friday.

BBC America’s Popular Host Graham Norton Asks "Would You Rather…?

UK’s biggest talk show host fronts BBC AMERICA’S all-new original comedy panel show featuring Whoopi Goldberg, Cyndi Lauper, Stanley Tucci, Alan Cumming, Scott Adsit, Judah Friedlander and more
Graham Norton brings his trademark style of wit and humor to the all-new BBC AMERICA original comedy panel show Would You Rather? with Graham Norton. Based on popular British panel-style shows, each week celebrities and comedians are asked to contemplate and discuss ridiculous predicaments and moral quandaries. Would you rather permanently lose your thumbs or a cousin? Would you rather land a plane on ecstasy or diffuse a bomb with a hangover? Would you rather eat dog food for a year or get shot in the knee? After a hilarious and candid debate the panelists must ultimately decide what they’d rather do and Graham picks his favorite response. Would You Rather? with Graham Norton premieres on November 5, 11:00pm ET/PT as part of BBC AMERICA’s Ministry of Laughs comedy block. It immediately follows an original episode of The Graham Norton Show which airs in its regular timeslot at 10:00pm ET.
Would You Rather? with Graham Norton is currently filming in New York City in front of a live studio audience. Academy Award-winner Whoopi Goldberg, Grammy Award-winner Cyndi Lauper, Emmy Award-winner Stanley Tucci, The Good Wife’s Alan Cumming and 30 Rock’s Scott Adsit and Judah Friedlander have all decided they’d rather spend an evening with Graham and his guests than hobnob at fancy celebrity parties. The full line-up of panelists will be announced later this week.
“When they asked me, would I rather sit in London watching television with my dogs or spend three weeks in New York with some of the brightest and funniest people in the States – it was a very easy decision to make,” said Graham Norton, host of the UK’s biggest talk show The Graham Norton Show, which premieres its tenth season on Saturday, October 29. Graham Norton has won five BAFTA Awards and six British Comedy Awards in his career.
The series is a So Television (The Graham Norton Show) production for BBC AMERICA with Graham Stuart (The Graham Norton Show, Pixelface, The Joan Rivers Position), Jim Biederman (The Onion News Network, The Tom Green Show, The Kids in the Hall) and Graham Norton serving as executive producers.
“BBC AMERICA asked us if we would rather come to our favorite city in the world to make a hilarious panel show with brilliant comedians. Or not. We’re going to get back to them soon,” said Graham Stuart Executive Producer and Co-Founder of So Television.
Executive Producer Jim Biederman added: “I am thrilled to be working with Graham Norton and BBC AMERICA on Would You Rather? with Graham Norton. Being a big fan of both, it’s pretty much a dream job.”
Would You Rather? with Graham Norton joins BBC AMERICA’s recently announced stable of all-new original programming, along with Richard Hammond’s Crash Course and scripted drama Copper, which both premiere in 2012. The series will air as part of BBC America’s Ministry of Laughs franchise, which launched in June and brings the best of British comedy to the U.S. in a two-hour comedy block every Saturday night.
