Guardian Live: Russell Brand in Conversation

In Conversation with Russell Brand: a frank discussion between Russell Brand and the Guardian’s renowned journalist and commentator Owen Jones will be broadcast live from the Emmanuel Centre, Westminster.

Russell Brand, one of our most controversial public figures, talks to Owen Jones about why he thinks revolution isn't just possible, but inevitable. In his new book, the writer and comedian argues that the system isn't working, that our governments are corrupt and the opposing parties are all pointlessly similar. Is there another way or is this just 'the way things are'?

Brand has been taking on talk show hosts and BBC stalwarts. Now drawing on the likes of Orwell and Piketty, he sets out his ideas for a brighter, fairer society.
