Russell Brand imitates Noam Chomsky at summer camp

British comedian and actor Russell Brand was on the Friday, Nov. 7, episode of Democracy Now! and during his interview with host Amy Goodman pointed out that her father went to summer camp with Noam Chomsky (Camp Massad in Pennsylvania) before launching into an imitation of Chomsky at camp.

“I bet Chomsky was boring on summer camp,” Brand said in the interview, before launching into a playful impersonation.

“I actually think Chomsky was pretty playful at camp,” Goodman replied, noting later in the interview that her dad, George Goodman, and Chomsky were bunkmates.
