Troublemaker, Russell Brand, and Jonathan Ross are in hot water for pulling a nasty little sex prank! Get the dirt below with photos and video to follow.
British comedian and troublemaker, Russell Brand, and his partner in crime, Jonathan Ross, have been suspended after a terrible and very immature prank. The two, who host a BBC radio show, made several prank phone calls to actor Andrew Sachs.
“I am sorry that I upset Mr. Sachs.” Brand also acknowledged his “stupid error of judgment.”
Andrew Sachs, who is now 78 years old, was most famously known for playing Manuel on “Fawlty Towers”. Something I’ve seen a few times growing up. Brand and Ross thought it would be funny to prank Sachs and leave messages about their intimate sexual knowledge of his granddaughter, Georgina Baillie, a twenty-three year old burlesque performer. In the end Ross and Brand did call the actor back trying to apologize but reportedly began laughing and making jokes again.
Picturing Manuel getting these messages actually makes me giggle. Have you seen the show before? But this is of course wrong and both Brand and Ross have owned up to their out of line sex prank which has left both of them suspended indefinitley!
Russell Brand has since quit and decided to move forward explaining:
“As I only do the radio show to make people laugh, I’ve decided that given the subsequent coverage I will stop doing the show. I got a bit caught up in the moment and forgot that at the core of the rude comments and silly songs were the real feelings of a beloved and brilliant comic actor and a very sweet and big-hearted young woman.”
The BBC isn’t happy at all and has had to deal with thousands of complaints. Oh, and Russell Brand wasn’t lying about the sexual knowledge! He has in fact hooked up previously with the dancer.
Listen to the prank phone call after the jump.
