OVERRATED Russell Brand: We enjoyed this haystack-haired comic's appearance in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," but after seeing his stand-up on BBC America and Comedy Central, we're mystified as to his standing as a comedic heavy-hitter. We've been a fan of British comedy since first seeing "Monty Python." So far, Brand strikes us as a glib rock star without a band. What are we missing?
