Russell Brand to record two episodes of US TV show in London London: Funnyman Russell Brand is to record two episodes of his US talk show in the UK.

`Brand X Live` airs on the FX network in the USA and promises everything from big name celebs to riotous crowd interaction, reported Sun online.

The 37-year-old controversial comedian will court an audience at the Duchess Theatre for the first recording of his telly programme.

A second show will be taped the following week.

Unlike most TV recordings where the audience are invited for free, Brand is charging people 28.50 pounds to attend the British shows.

Next week Brand will host a Comic Relief gala at Wembley Arena featuring Frankie Boyle, Simon Amstell, Jimmy Carr, Eddie Izzard and shamed funnyman Jason Manford.
