Remember in ancient times when people settled disputes with a sword and surprise tigers?

Former Big Brother presenter Russell Brand is squaring off against UKIP leader Nigel Farage on a televised debate on BBC's Question Time.

The event will take place on December 11th.

Nigel Farage, a noted conservative voice, will be facing down Brand - who's made a name for himself as speaking out against corporate entities and the established political parties.

If you're into politics, fine - we're basically watching and waiting for one of them to throw a chair at the other and make it interesting.
