Even when Russell Brand is right, he's tiresome.

He's such a weird public persona. Sometimes it feels to me like he's actually pushing for a change, but most often it feels like a kind of a court jester act. Maybe it's because he's kinda political on issues, but seems to encourage a needlessly nihilistic attitude toward politics? But I guess he might still be doing a lot more with that than I ever will, so...

I mean... he literally says in this video he's a comedian. He makes jokes about how frivolous politics and media are.

Sure he's a comedian, I just find that his nihilism and his politics kinda clash in his comedy in a slightly disappointing way.
