Storyline

An ignorant, wannabe-Jamaican British b-boy; an anti-Semitic, misogynistic but friendly Kazakhstani television reporter; and a homosexual Austrian fashonista--all played by Sacha Baron Cohen--conduct interviews on unsuspecting Americans, who include prominent pundits in the political system and celebrities, that reveal deeply hidden prejudices and challenge social mores within American society.

Keeps you laughing long after you finish watching
30 August 2004 | by (San Jose, California, USA) – See all my reviews

I'll echo everything the other reviewer said and note that the two characters Cohen plays that aren't Ali G (Borat and Bruno), are even funier than Ali G himself.

Season 1 is a classic, though it tapers off in quality with the last couple of episodes. As such, it still has at least 1 riotous part in every episode. And by riotous, I mean the kind of humor that you will continue to laugh out loud about for months following.

The new season is even better. I never thought he could surpass what he did before, but he has. There were two particular segments, one with Borat in a cowboy bar, another with Bruno at Spring Break, that had me laughing for 5 minutes straight AFTER the segment was over.

From Dream On to Mr Show to Ali G, HBO knows comedy. This is, BY FAR, the best comedy show on TV. Chappelle is the only other program that comes close.
