Talking The Revenge of Sacha Baron Cohen! "Who Is America?"

Hahahahahaha!!! I am eagerly awaiting the premier of his new show "Who Is America?" airing this Sunday on Showtime. After reading multiple articles from all of the Butt-Hurt political figures, this will be Comedy Gold!
The first rule of comedy... There are no rules.

https://ca.reuters.com/article/enter...BN1K137J-OCAEN

https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/sach...084225018.html



Quote:
Per Showtime, the series — which has been in-the-works for a year — will “explore the diverse individuals, from the infamous to the unknown across the political and cultural spectrum, who populate our unique nation.” The first installment, featuring former VP Dick Cheney (see video above), premieres thus Sunday, July 15 at 10/9c.

“Sacha is a comedic genius who shocks you with his audacity, bravery and inventiveness,” Showtime president David Nevins said in a statement. “He is the premier provocateur of our time, but not for the sake of ‘gotcha’ moments. Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics. Nobody knows how to cause a stir like Sacha Baron Cohen, and it’s going to be fascinating to watch what happens when Who Is America? is released on the world.”
Who's going to be featured?

Baron Cohen himself teased the series on a couple wild notes. On July 4, he tweeted a video that basically insinuated he was "graduating soon" from Trump University. Then on Monday, he posted a clip to his Instagram account of former Vice President Dick Cheney obliging when an accented-voice (Baron Cohen's, naturally) asks him to sign a waterboard kit. So yeah, Cheney will be there. As will Sarah Palin. John McCain's 2008 running mate wrote a lengthy note on Facebook explaining how Baron Cohen had tricked her into sitting for an interview.

What I would love is one that truly bashes EVERYONE. I hate that most of these are all Right or Left wing - there are assclowns on both sides - I'd love to see one that smashed that all equally like the old days.

I agree, but today any attempt to point out the idiots on the left will not go well. The left will even attack their own.

Look at what they did to Scarlet Johannsen for just being an actress playing a role. At least she was smart enough to remove herself from it all. It would have cost her a lot more than what she would have made from the movie.

This show will get old fast, it is the same joke over and over again. It likes watching Jackass, and Impractical Jokers, after seeing the same dumb things over and over again it is not funny anymore.

Me too. I agree with you. I am clearly on the left side of the isle, but, OK, it was funny once but stupid twice.

I say that all the time.

Being in the middle allows me to see the funny on both sides.

You'll get a chuckle out of it but like Maestro said the joke gets old. Enjoy it for what it is...

Haven’t seen the show, but I’ve already heard reviews on it. Based on the reviews, I’d say there’s a good chance this thread gets moved to the political sub forum lol.

Saw the trailer who showed a lot of the "Kinderguardian" episode. Man, this was crazy. Unbelievable if not shocking tbh... Despite laughing, I also became pretty concerned.

You should be concern, since it shows the people who are running this country are a bunch of idiots. They were not even smart enough to know they were being played. When the joke is obvious in the first few minutes and they do not get it. Think about when there is no joke and someone tries to manipulate them and its not obvious what they are up to.

This makes me want to see it even more now. I enjoy a comedic spin put on situations that need to be brought to light in order to show hypocrisy. I have a friend who often quotes South Park. When called out on it, he will flat out tell anyone that there is more truth in South Park than the news.

And now this: https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/25/enter...5T10%3A30%3A05

This stupid MF not only dropped his pants while being filmed but repeatedly screams the N word and makes fun of Chinese tourists.

Say what you will about him being duped. But he KNEW he was being filmed! Obviously he didn't give AF.

We are only 2 episodes in LMFAO! I can only imagine the Sarah Palin episode....

The one woman at the art gallery who raised her dress and cut her pubes and handed it to Cohen for art, was hilarious!

This one doesn't "bash" and you can rest assured, it isn't partisan (no doubt it will be dissected that way however). Brilliant idea from SBC, a "What Would You Do?" type show done in his style. - solid 4.0/5.

Saw this on the news yesterday, meant to share it on here and forgot. That guy knew he was leaving office in 5 months but this expedited things a little. Gotta give it to SBC, he's getting his point across and doing exactly what he set out to do. Knowing who he is and his antics, although I'm a fan of his, I would never agree to be a part of any of his work; especially if I held office in any position. The way I see it is they deserve whatever they get or whatever light they are painted in for their actions or for agreeing to be a part of his show.
