Thursday 23rd October Electric Cinema, Birmingham Cineworld and Birmingham Empire – all @7pm
Russell Brand, one of our most controversial public figures, talks to the Guardian’s 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, Fox News fascists and BBC stalwarts. Now drawing on the likes of Orwell and Piketty, he sets out his ideas for a brighter, fairer society.
