Russell Brand: "I Am Excited About Getting Married"



    British comic Russell Brand said he was thrilled about his upcoming nuptials to pop starlet Katy Perry.

    “I will say I am excited about getting married,“ Brand said Wednesday night at Barnes & Noble in Manhattan while promoting his new book “Booky Wook 2: This Time It’s Personal.”

    “It’s a lovely thing to get married. I think it’s a peaceful thing, and I’m very happy about it.”

    The couple got engaged last year, but Brand remained mum on the details and did not reveal a specific date or place for the wedding.

    In lieu of a traditional reading, Brand interacted with the wall-to-wall crowd -- answering their questions and telling jokes. He humorously informed fans “that man on Facebook is not me."

    While Brand’s fiancé is busy with her concert tour, the “Get Him to the Greek” star started a weekly radio show on the UK station talkSPORT earlier this month, which follows him on his book tour for the next 20 weeks.

    Brand also revealed last night that before too long he will have another radio show to tune into -- this time it will be in the states.

    “There will soon be a new radio show on Sirius,” Brand said. “Look out for that.”
