The Untold Truth Of Sacha Baron Cohen

566 834 Näkymät

Even after years in the spotlight, there's still a lot of mystery to Sacha Baron Cohen, and much about the comic many casual viewers wouldn't know. Here's a look at some of the most interesting and least known bits and pieces about Baron Cohen's life.
Baron Cohen wanted to be a performer since childhood, having been most influenced by actor and comedian Peter Sellers. Baron Cohen told The Guardian:
"He was this incredibly realistic actor, who was also hilarious and who managed to bridge the gap between comedy and satire."
It's an easy influence to understand: Sellers, who claimed he had no personality outside his characters, wouldn't just act his roles, he'd become them.
When he was 12, Baron Cohen formed a breakdancing troupe specifically so they could perform at his bar mitzvah. During his teenage years, he wrote and performed many sketches as part of a youth group, including one with his brothers: "The Schvitzing Brothers." Baron Cohen described the sketch on the podcast WTF with Marc Maron, saying:
"[It] was about how these Hasidic Jews get so hot that they end up shaving their beards and taking their clothes off and actually converting to Christianity at the end. And it would go down terribly. I mean these old-age homes would hate it."
In college, Baron Cohen joined Footlights, Cambridge University's theater club. After graduating, he gave himself five years to make it as a performer, and spent some time working for small TV stations, where he developed a character who'd later become Ali G.

  • Sacha Baron Cohen is a phenomenal actor! He contributed greatly to the election. I thank him for his perseverance, it was a success. So happy for him...Although I loved Bo Rap, cast & crew, Sacha would have made a great Freddie & brought more of his essence, fun & laughter to the film...Sad Brian & Roger couldn't see it his way... Congratulations to Sacha on his success. Many more blessings to him & his family, always!

  • He keeps in touch with his Jewish religious beliefs, yet the main characters he plays are non-Jewish! I don't give a rat's arse about Islam o Christianity (or any other religion), but at least when other comedians (at least the funny ones) make fun of religious people, they don't reserve the right to adhere to a particular religion for themselves! That's the epitome of hypocrisy!

  • Did you expect that by accomplishing what is expected from you, progress is guaranteed? That promises made are promises kept? That the will of the majority will prevail? That by abiding the law, justice will be served? How many more pitfalls do you have to climb out of, before realizing that in this universe nothing is stable and expectations are based on fictitious assumptions? Proactive engagement calls for creating hypothetical solutions for assumptions and as time goes by, augmenting or dismissing solutions. Being proactively engaged does not mean losing hope. It means taking hope seriously. Shalom.
