Sascha Baron Cohen is one of the greatest comic geniuses to come along in a while. I liked his panel discussion of science: "Yes, but can your computer multiply 9999999999999999999999999999999 times 99999999..."?
Also, I can't believe no one has mentioned Borat. He is the best part of the show these days...but remember ladies, if you want to date him, you will need at least two years of plough experience...
"But in spite of all temptations To belong to other nations, He remains an Englishman!"

It sounds hilarious and the name of the guy, well that alone is funny. I will be looking out for it. Where can I buy his dvd? I have never heard of this guy before. I sure could use a laugh so I am interested in purchasing it.

I love Borat.
Last night during a job interview, he asked the interviewer if he could put a camera in the ladies bathroom.
One of his strong points he explained was being able to hold large woman down for three hours.
During his interview of Andy Rooney, Ali G asked why the media doesn't publish events one day before they happen.

Here, found this on it - hilarious !
"..At the rodeo in Roanoke, Southwest Virginia, USA, Borat was given permission to sing the national anthem. He started well introducing himself and saying that he supported the war against terrorism. He then was reported as saying,
"I hope you kill every man, woman and child in Iraq, down to the lizards"
"May George W. Bush drink the blood of every man, woman and child in Iraq"
Borat then got the words of the national anthem wrong finishing with...
"your home in a grave".
The organisers of the event realised that the crowd were angry and they rushed him away fearing violence..."
By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

In early 1999, a friend who lives in Staines, just south of LHR, spotted camera crews and fake graffiti being applied to a nearby underpass.
It was the backdrop to the intro of Ali G.
A few weeks later Ali G appeared on a satirical Channel 4 programme 'The 11 O'Clock Show', he was about the best thing on it, also featuring some unknown bloke called Ricky Gervais.
Ali G got his own series, though the trick of making interview guests think he really was a 'Yoof TV' interviewer of quite staggering stupidity had been rumbled, so it went more towards a sketch format, but Borat still fooled enough people.
Hence the US edition, where no one has heard of him.
The 'Iraq' song was reported over here, but what about another Borat incident, as the US series has been shown here, I've seen it.
Borat was at a Country & Western bar, he introduced himself, where he was from, how he was going to sing a song about a 'problem' in his native Khazastan (SP?)
It was called 'Throw The Jew Down The Well'.
His delivery and diction was crystal clear, he urged the audience to join in with the 'Throw The Jew Down The Well' chorus, which the crowd largely did, smiling and with enthusiasm.
It seemed a normal enough bar, no white power symbols on the walls, just a regular C&W place, the crowd were not skinheads, but plenty of Stetsons in evidence.
