Tune in alert for BrandX with Russell Brand as he welcomes Eddie Izzard and Noel Gallagher.
Brand will take BrandX back to his hometown roots in London, England on Thursday, March 7 and Thursday, March 14 for his full-hour live show on FX.
Both shows will take place at the Duchess Theatre in Soho and broadcast at its new time of 11:00 PM ET/PT. Emmy® nominated stand-up comic Eddie Izzard and musician Noel Gallagher will guest star on March 7; (Guest stars for March 14 are TBD).
Already one of the most acclaimed comics of his generation, Eddie Izzard is developing an equally stellar reputation as a film, television and stage actor. Izzard was last seen as Grandpa Munster in NBC’s Mockingbird Lane. Izzard released his latest DVD, Eddie Izzard: Live at Madison Square Garden, a recording of his brilliant sold out show. He further proved his unique versatility by hitting all entertainment mediums, including his stint on Broadway in Race and in the independent film, Every Day. He also became the first solo stand-up comedian to appear at the Hollywood Bowl in the celebrated Eddie Izzard: Stripped to the Bowl. In 2010, Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story, the original documentary which portrays his rise to fame received an Emmy nomination. His bizarre, tangential, absurd and surreal comic narratives, lauded for their creativity and wit, have him recognized as one of today’s foremost stand-ups.
A founding member of the British rock group Oasis, guitarist and songwriter Noel Gallagher became as well known for his catchy, soulful songs like "Wonderwall," "Champagne Supernova" and "Don’t Look Back in Anger." Oasis was the most successful music act in their native country, with 22 Top 10 hits, most of which were penned by Gallagher. Gallagher launched a new act, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, while retaining his position as one of the U.K.’s most respected musicians, as well as one of the country’s top headliner.
BrandX aims Russell Brand’s unique, rollicking skillset at the traditional monologue, celebrity interviews, and audiences segments. The series is produced by FX Productions, in association with Branded Films and Dakota Films. Executive Producers are Brand, Troy Miller, Nik Linnen and John Noel.
