Sacha Baron Cohen
This show will have you laughing out loud...it’s really that good. How could you not holler with laughter when you see Ali G interviewing accomplished and respected men (Boutros-Boutros Ghali, Donald Trump, Buzz Aldrin, Newt Gingrich) and witness him asking them a variety of retarded, sexual and just plain silly questions. A good example has Ali asking former U.N. Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali if Disneyland is a part of the United Nations and if not, why not? He even sits down with that king of fools, James Lipton from the Actor’s Studio. It’s no big surprise that Lipton ends up looking like a jackass without a sense of humor. Ali asks these questions with such a child-like innocence that it’s almost impossible for the interviewee not to take him seriously. Besides these Q&A sessions, he also does a lot of “field” work and in studio stuff. A couple of personal favorites of mine are when he’s taken on a personal tour inside the United Nations conference room (where he utters an array of politically incorrect and asinine things) and an in-studio discussion he has with a rabbi, a priest and an atheist – you can just imagine the insane things he asks this group. Borat, the horny and very old-fashioned fish-out-of-water Kazakhstani reporter is another one of Sacha’s hilarious creations. This show really allows Cohen to demonstrate the great range he has when you see him playing these three totally different personalities. A couple of Borat’s finer moments (both on disc one) are when he visits an etiquette expert in the South and when he consults a dating agency and then proceeds to go on a speed dating trial. Bruno is the least funny of his creations, mostly there to reveal the superficiality of the fashion world. Luckily, he is underused. Words will not do this show justice, watch one episode and fall in love with this Brit chameleon’s madcap humor. DA ALI G SHOW is a wildly funny and inventive half-hour that you simply should not miss.
2 Borat Bonus Clips: In the first clip, Borat speaks to a rich snob and compares women in his native land to animals at a Hamptons horse show. In the second, Borat finds himself at an American patriot rally and questions a couple of Americans with his usual naďve charm. More can't miss stuff here…
