Star of 'Borat' and 'Bruno' returns satirical gaze to US

10 July 2018

Oh, and that it might be "perhaps the most unsafe show in the history of television".

As for Sacha, apparently the comedian/prankster has been undercover secretly filming a new show for a year.

When Cohen's show was cryptically announced by Showtime last week, the network only described his character as being "shameless", "unhinged", and "cold-blooded".

Watch two teaser videos for Who Is America? - which feature former US Vice President Dick Cheney for some reason - below.

Cheney, who was openly in favor of the US military using torture methods including waterboarding against captured terrorist suspects during his tenure, clearly still hasn't changed his views on the act which is a human rights abuse and punishable by global law.

"Sure!" Cheney said. "That's a first". The posters teased images of Cohen's new characters for the series and an airtime of Sundays at 10 pm.

Showtime has announced that Sacha Baron Cohen is returning to the small screen for a brand new comedy series, which is said to be similar in format to Da Ali G Show and is being marketed as "the most unsafe show in the history of television".

Cheney was asked by a thickly-accented voice off-camera: 'Is it possible to sign my waterboard kit?'

It's official: Sacha Baron Cohen is returning to TV - and a lot sooner than you might think.

Cohen's new character and conceit for the show is being kept under wraps for now, but we can't wait to see what he's been up to. Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics.

He posted a clip of Donald Trump slating him from his office in Trump Tower, after Trump was duped into speaking to Ali G back in 2003.

Also in 2012, Trump told HLN that Baron Cohen was a "bad guy" and a "moron" that "nobody cares about".
