Sacha Baron Cohen has been messing with people and playing oddball characters for over a decade. He made us laugh with Borat, he made us giggle with Bruno and he made us cackle with The Ali G Show. Now with his new show, 'Who Is America', he's continuing to do what he does best! So let's jump in and discuss 'Pseudo-Realism' and why he's so good at what he does.

    • Ngl that's really triggering me; rustling my jimmies, if you will. I wouldn't care if you had an American accent but _i-ran_ coming from an English accent is jarring. It's like when people say mall instead of shopping centre..

  • I believe Borat 2 to be the most incredible piece of cinema today, I genuinely felt uneasy the whole time it was like the Joker film but with actual real people.

  • I see your link between Iranian Cinema. However, since (with Cohen) he's the only actor, it makes this live performance and invisible theatre. After all, Cohen does have a background in theatre having been 'Gaulier-trained'.

  • Above all I admire Sacha's incredible courage. Again and again he enters groups and even crowds of people who strongly oppose what his character is going to say and do. Revealing their prejudice and often invoking their anger. He never backs off, holds on to his outcome, always goes first and is a true leader. Sacha boldly goes where no one has gone before. Second, I admire his ability to always remain in character. Even for days in a row! Third, his wit and ability to improvise. Whatever happens, he responds in a funny way never missing a beat. Last but not least, I like his higher values like honesty and equality of people.

  • I was impressed by the one anecdote about how he was portraying borat at a wine tasting and borat was gulping instead of sipping and eventually passed out from over drinking and the camera crew and production people were panicking thinking when he wakes up he’ll drop character. Yet he lurches back to life in full character as borat shouting “YES MORE WINE” with out missing a beat.

  • Shouldn't comedy have entertainment value? I agree Cohen's method is unique and I admire his approach to a degree, but Borat was purely atrocious and disgusting all the way through, failing to make any kind of statement beyond the shock value. I get the intention, but not the outcome.

He loves you so much that He died on the cross for your sins and rose from the dead so that you could be saved from sin and the wrath of God! This is the Gospel; you can be saved from God’s wrath and hell if you believe and trust in Jesus! God Bless you all!

  • While I agree Steve Coogan was likely a big influence, I feel SBC is a more direct evolution from what Chris Morris was doing with The Day Today and other shows. His Ali G interviews were super similar to what Chris Morris was doing previously. That’s not to belittle what SBC does either, I would Chris Morris to be an absolute genius in and of himself.

  • Look, I don't want to detract from SBCs genius, he's great, but the idea of having a satirical character do interviews with people who weren't pre-warned as well as skits involving regular people is almost as old as television. Norman Gunston is the classic Australian example from the 1970s - en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_Gunston - he was blindsiding celebraties and politicians with his weird schtick when SBC was still in kindy and remains the only television *character* to win a Gold Logie ( Australia's "most popular actor/actress" TV award)
