I Just Figured It Out!

Borat...




...is Latka...



...meets Tom Green!




Whether you think he's funny or not, Sacha Baron Cohen is a monster marketing machine. It is nice.


"This suit is not black."
"This suit is black .........................................not."
Brilliant.

Ow man...his ability to change from one personality to the next is just amazing.

Loved him all through Ali G...and I'm looking forward to this.

Takes a smart man to be this rediculously funny.

If you think he's good at subversive humour, check out anything by Christopher Morris (The Day Today, On The Hour, The Brass Eye or Jam).

The man is terrifying...

Guess you'll be seeing the Borat movie then... as Ali G would have said: "Wicked"

Looks very funny. It's definitely on my list.

Bruno should be even more insane. I saw him do a bit where he had all these college frat boys practically having sex with each other until they realized, "Dude, this is really gay."

The only issue here is the bigger he gets the less effective the humor might become. You can't do the "unknown guy with a mic doing crazy shit" thing if everyone knows your face (Tom Green) even if you are in character. What do you think?

William makes a very good point - it will be difficult for Sacha to continue as this character with all the notoriety...much like Tom Green (very good example - and as we soon saw, Green was a bit of a one trick pony)...since the laughs generally come from the people Borat (and Bruno) interact with have no idea who he is.

Like Latka ... only kinda dirty.
