Who is America? Sacha Baron Cohen on Showtime

Postby Blue Jackets » Mon Jul 09, 2018 5:51 am

Sacha Baron Cohen is about to unveil a whole new character!

The 46-year-old actor and comedian confirmed his mysterious upcoming Showtime series, due to premiere on July 15, with a new teaser on Sunday (July 8)

“Imagine if Sacha Baron Cohen had been undercover secretly filming a new show for a year,” the teaser reveals, as well as a clip of Dick Cheney signing a waterboard kit.

The new character is described as “shameless,” “unhinged,” and “cold-blooded.”

The show will reportedly be called Who Is America? as revealed by posters hanging in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Sounds interesting. Not sure I want to devote time to a full series, but I might check it out.

I'll check it out for sure. I'm not a huge fan of Sacha, but I like how uncomfortable it makes me feel. He should team up with Nathan Fielder.

I love that he's "duping" these people by asking for an interview and them answering questions.

It is kind of crappy of him to dress up like wounded veterans to get laughs.

Lot's of backlash regarding him this weekend. It's not like he's drugging them and forcing them to answer these questions. He pretends to be in the same boat as them, and then they volunteer the information.

He's trying to end their careers, which I think will be fun.

What did I just watch? How are these people in elected positions? Multiple people think it's a good idea to arm 3 year olds.

That's the thing, they don't really think it's a good idea. They're just so far in the pocket of special interest groups that they will say/support anything they think can make them a few more bucks in campaign donations.

Bahah I love Bernie's facial expressions. I wonder how long after this interview took place that he found out it was an act?

It's hard to watch the other clip because it feels like it should be a joke. Kids that young don't have fine motor skills down yet, but they can use a deadly weapon. Yep.

Kudos to her. She was weird in the episode for sure, but she did seem passionate about art and interested in Sacha's fake story. Her answers in that interview were great. She seems very educated and nice.

This makes perfect sense. Great awkward tension synergy

Yeah, this wasn't overly surprising. Last nights episode wasn't as skin crawling as episode 1, but man....these elected officials are idiots.
