Russell Brand Gets in on a Sewer Thing (PHOTOS)

Russell Brand is definitely a man of the people.

The British funnyman and Katy Perry’s future husband hit up the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York on Wednesday to appear on Late Show With David Letterman and encountered a group of New York’s finest: The guys who keep the city’s sewer system running for the benefit of eight million Gothamites.

Realizing that he was among true fans (maybe they relate to his frequently potty-mouthed humor?), the Get Him to the Greek star graciously threw his arms around them and agreed to pose for photos.

Let’s celebrate Brand’s generous nature—and the miracle of modern sanitation—by clicking through the photo gallery, shall we?
