Russell Brand To Pen Book On How To Overthrow Government

Russell Brand is taking his revolution a step further and plans to write a book on how it should be done.

The 39 year-old comedian will cover "ecology, inequality, rioting, financial meltdown and his total mistrust of politicians," in the lengthy guide.

A press release from publishing house Century, who have acquired rights to the forthcoming book, stated that it will "act as a provocation; urging its readers to discard apathy and challenge the status quo," (via The Guardian).

The as-yet-untitled volume will essentially inform people on how to start 'The Revolution.'

"People keep asking me how The Revolution will work? 'We all want to bring down the government and establish a personal and global utopia, but how?' they ask," said Brand once news broke of the book.

"Well, in this book, I'm going to explain it. Having accrued the greatest wisdom known to man (by conducting interviews, watching DVDs, reading books, thinking and looking at the sky) I am now able to put in a simple, accessible book(y wook) the solution to internal and external turmoil. And about time, too."

This year has seen Brand become more involved with the political world, and even though the 'Get Him To The Greek' actor has admitted to never voting, he edited an issue of the New Statesman.

The funnyman was also granted a one on one interview with Jeremy Paxman, where the ruthless journalist quizzed Brand about his 'revolution'.

Ben Dunn, the publishing director of Century added, "Like the rest of the world, I have been avidly following Russell's writing and stand up and have been inspired by his passionate call to arms. This book will be a massive extension of that and I can't wait to publish his brilliant words later this year."

Brand's book on revolution is slated for a release this coming October (2014).
