Russell Brand is ready to give his take in late-night.

The comedian and film star has inked a deal with FX to air six half-hour specials featuring his opinions on current events, politics and pop culture.

Debuting next spring, Brand's untitled series will be shot in front of a live studio audience and feature a heavy crowd participation element.

"I am so excited I'm on the point of climax, in fact I will put the 'O' into FX, which spells FOX, which is actually the channel's real name," Brand told Us Weekly in a statement Thursday. "That's the only thing that worries me about all this, to be honest. At least I'll be able to have a Christmas drink with Bill O'Reilly."
