I just can't seem to work up any appreciation for his particular brand of "funny".

It takes time to get into Russell's style of comedy. Last night was very tame for him believe me - anyone whose watched Big Brother in the UK will know.

I saw him on the view last week, and he seemed so "Uncomfortable" in his own skin. Pretty Sad.

I actually turned off the awards because of him. I DVRed it so I can fast forward threw him. In the first 15 minutes I couldn't take any more jokes about the jonas brothers being virgins.

He wasn't even close to being funny.... Getting him to host the VMAs was probably the worst thing MTV could have done. They better step it up big time next year if they want 1/2 as many viewers.

Yeah, one of them was funny.... Joan Cusack was funny. Is there anything worse than an elitist Brit lecturing Americans via dry, cerebral, sardonic humor? I think not. Only the abysmal MTV network would be capable of giving some creature like this an audience, further proof that the once innovative music network is a ghost of what it used to be.

i did not watch the vma's, but i heard it was a trainwreck. the host was terrible, brittany spears mispronounced some words, pete wentz was a tool with his stupid conversation with his wife. mtv needs to go off the air.

I didn't know who the hell this guy was..............
He kept telling the same "controversial" jokes over and over even though he was getting no response................
He looks like the retarded son of Wierd Al......................
After tons of MTV hyping about the Twilight cast, he cut off the Star of the movie with his spastic rambling (beware the wrath of vampire book addicted teenage girls, seriously, you've all been warned, just wait till after the movie comes out, you'll all see what I mean)..................

Better luck next year MTV And here's a tip, if you're going to get an obnoxious "controversial" comedian who blatantly spits out the most outrageous things they can think of just to get publicity, at least find one that your audience has heard of before. Sara Silverman makes me want to poke my own eyes out with a rusty fork, but I'd sit through 2 hours of her over that Brand clown any day

Who was this sorry ass? I never heard of Russell Brand and don't care to ever again. Send him back to his own country. Who does he think he is? He SUCKEC big time. Besides him, the whole show was lame. It seemed low budget and low class. Very low. I didn't think a single thing that Brand said was funny and apparently no one else in the audience did either. Somebody deport!

Well, if mtv is giving awards to britney for a so-so song and a so-so video, why not have this tool host. mtv is sabotaging itself. Go figure.

PS---Giving britney those awards over so many other talented artists is ridiculous. Shame, shame, shame on you mtv!
