Russell Brand phoned in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to talk the second season of his talk show Brand X as well as his recent swatting incident.
After being the latest victim of a swatting prank, Russell joked: “If all swatting attacks are this unnoticeable I’m ready for war because I didn’t even know it had happened, I still don’t know what a swatting attack is!”
The funnyman continued “I wasn’t [there] I was out,” adding, “there’s always some helicopters and police at my house anyway because of my involvement in other activites so I didn’t notice any additional ones.”
Brand continued to joke: “Swatting, I don’t like the word very much. Swatting, obviously what you do to insects or a passing bottom.”
So was Brand upset about the prank?
Nope! In fact, the comedian admitted: “I think if I I were a teenager I’d definitely do it.” However, understanding, “but what would be bad would be if the police were attending a swatting and then an actual crime happened and it took the police too long to get there because they were doing a swatting but other than that it sounds like a laugh.”
To hear more from Russell, like what you can expect when tuning in to his talk show Brand X, Thursday nights at 11pm on FX, and to find out if he wears underwear or not, listen to the full interview below!
