Russell Brand may not have things going well with his personal relationships, but professionally, he’s doing just fine!

According to MSNBC, the recently single British comedian has signed up for a new late night TV comedy show on FX.

FX confirmed the news yesterday, saying that the show will start later this year, and will feature Brand discuessing politics, news and pop culture in a six episode show shot before a live audience.  Nick Grad, originally programming chief at FX, said in a statement:

“We’re very excited to add Russell Brand’s bracingly funny, original, and honest voice to the FX comedy line-up.”

Brand previously hosted a short-lived UK talk show in 2006 and was forced to resign as a BBC radio host in 2008 after making lewd, prank phone calls.
