    Default Russell Brand boasts he can "knock Stephen Hawking out of his chair."

    'I can knock Stephen Hawking out of his wheelchair!' Russell Brand boasts he's more intelligent than the professor... as he speaks of death threats over political stance

    By RYAN SMITH FOR MAILONLINE
    PUBLISHED: 13:34, 10 April 2015 | UPDATED: 16:51, 10 April 2015


    While Russell Brand has often stirred the pot of controversy with his outbursts, the comedian may have taken things a step too far while light-heartedly assessing his own intelligence.
    During an appearance on Friday's instalment of Alan Carr: Chatty Man, the comedian spoke about landing fourth place on Prospect Magazine's list of the UK's top thinkers, asserting that he's more intelligent than Professor Stephen Hawking.
    And as he spoke of the celebrated physicist, who is wheelchair-bound due to motor neurone disease, Russell jokingly scoffed of his honour: 'It's not even a medal! I have top notch thoughts. I can knock Hawking out of his chair. I am just drifting through life and trying my hardest.'

    Bad choice of words? During an appearance on Friday's Alan Carr: Chatty Man, Russell Brand joked that he 'can knock Stephen Hawking out of his wheelchair' in terms of intelligence

    He soon turned the mockery on himself, adding: 'I am the only person to win Shagger of the Year and be on any kind of thinking list. I am lucky to be on a list but not in a register. I bounce up and down all kinds of lists.'

    And while he may be hovering among the elite on one renowned list, Russell, who has styled himself as something of a revolutionary, admitted that his outspokenness on politics has made him a target of death threats.
    When asked if his strong stance against the practices of the banks had led to any threats on his life, he responded: 'No more than usual. The death threats have not spiked particularly.

    Russell Brand YouTube rant: Could I have been Jihadi John?




    'We are always sort of a bit nervous when we are at home like, "What if I get bumped off?" But if you are with people who believe the same things as you it is sort of alright.
    'I am not saying mad, crazy out there stuff. These things happen in other countries too. I don't blame individuals anymore as there is an institutionalised thinking that has come all over us and it started in the '80s.'
    Russell has teamed up with film-maker Michael Winterbottom for upcoming documentary The Emperor's New Clothes, which questions bailouts during the financial crisis and bankers' bonuses.

    Threats: During his interview with host Alan Carr, Russell also spoke about receiving death threats in reaction to his stance against the practices of the government and banks

    He said of the project: 'This film is making the point that what the financial industry done was a rip off and a con and we bailed them out with public money. Our government obviously facilitated that.
    'No one asked us. Someone said do you want to bail the banks out so this film delineates and explains that in a really easy to understand way. Plus I did good stunts in it and things like that.'
    During his appearance on the Channel 4 show, the star took aim at Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, attacking a recent photograph released of him feeding a lamb at a farm.

    He ranted: 'These things are carefully managed. The lamb image is to show him nurturing. It is for us to think, "Perhaps he will nurture us", but he won't.
    'In reality that bottle is full of money going into a banker's mouth while he s**t into a disabled person's face.'

    Nobody is going to "bump" this fucking idiot off. His commie ass has no clue what he's talking about 99% of the time. He's about as thoughtful as Alex Jones.

    ^ And yet he claims (somehow) that he is off drugs and he has implied that the whole disaster with Katy Perry was not because of his drugs ...

    There is no way that someone that acts like he acts is off of drugs. Unless of course he's suffered some form of brain damage. I can't find any other explanation for how self important he acts. He clearly believes he is some sort of revolutionary, ala Che. But he's really nothing more than a prick that has been told yes too many times in his life.

    cameron and lamb is totally a PR stunt. but you have to admit, it's a far better PR stunt than harper and kitten, the attempt to make stephen harper look human and non-creepy to canadian voters. fail.

    Brand is an insufferable narcissist knob who is totally still doing drugs. If he wants to bring down the evil capitalist regime that helped create his own multi millions he could lead by example and start giving it all away to the downtrodden masses he claims to speak for. Another fucking celeb Leftard hypocrite.

    Did anyone fail to see this part:

    while light-heartedly assessing his own intelligence.




    I'm missing the part where speaking up for what you believe in makes you a drug addict or means you should give up all your money.

    I'm just saying he should practice what he preaches, and boy does he preach.

    I don't think I've ever made a secret of my basic rightard inclination. I'm the GR Token Tory after all. Boo hiss. I was born that way and make no apology. But I like to think I can still take a fair and balanced view even if I don't agree. Socialism is a lovely idea but we've seen time and again that it doesn't work and what really makes me angry are the celeb millionaire hypocrites it seems to attract. Brand is one, Bono and Geldof too, Tony Blair and his offshore millions, the Clintons with theirs.... The list goes on.

    How do you know what he does with his money?

    And I love that as soon as someone says something radical or "lefty" they're either on drugs, mentally ill or have dementia.

    He spends a good chunk of it on renting a glamorous London pad. The rest goes on drugs. Obviously.

    As for your second comment - Obviously.

    Really? Yet it's perfectly acceptable to use derogatory slang for someone who is right of center? It happens all of the time here.
