Storyline

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen appears as Ali G, a rapper-wannabe from Staines. Ali G has his own TV show, where he interviews people on serious subjects. They're not aware that Ali G is just a character and they're being set up as part of a comedy act. Cohen also appears in two other guises: as Borat, a Kazakhstani reporter, and Bruno, a gay Austrian fashionista. Hilarity ensues. Written by grantss

A very funny and smart Show
26 February 2006 | by mynameischristopherSee all my reviews

This has been showing in the U.K. for a long time and is very funny and a smart way of showing people in a true selves, Unfortunately the summary of the show is a little misleading.... the character is not meant to be a "Jamaican-British" but a person from a non-Jamaican background that thinks he is...It is not clear from this show that was shown around the world but the original shows shown in the U.K. it was, for e.g. he has a Jamaican D.J... on the his show each week, which he tries to talk to in Jamaican and has to refer to his "how to speak Jamaican" book because the D.J. cant understand him. I just felt I had to clear that up as it makes quite a big difference to how the character comes across...Funny as opposed to offensive. Overall great show with very much on-the-ball writers.
