SIRIUS XM RADIO's RAW DOG COMEDY channel is adding comedian/actor RUSSELL BRAND's UTV Sports TALKSPORT/LONDON show, starting NOVEMBER 24th. BRAND, known to U.S. audiences from the movies "FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL" and "GET HIM TO THE GREEK," his hosting the MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS, and his recent marriage to KATY PERRY, has been hosting the weekly show for several weeks, and previously hosted a BBC RADIO 2 show that ended in controversy over a prank call by BRAND and JONATHAN ROSS to actor ANDREW SACHS' voicemail.
The current show will launch with airings throughout the THANKSGIVING holiday starting NOVEMBER 24th at 6p (ET), and will then air SATURDAY at 9p (ET) through JANUARY 15th.
"SIRIUS XM is the future of radio until we learn how to broadcast directly into people's brains," said BRAND. "I am completing work on my Neuro-Disruptor and RUSSELL BRAND RADIO will begin in your mind MONDAY."
