I’m a big fan of Sacha Coen’s. The Ali G show was excellent, and I think his Borat sketches are even better. The Borat movie is like an extended version of the clips that aired on Ali G. There is a very loose plot that ties it all together. Borat arrives in New York to make a film about America, falls in love with C.J. Parker from Baywatch, and decides to travel to California to meet her. On the way, he gets into all sorts of mischief. The movie makes you cringe. How he doesn’t get beat up during all his escapades is beyond me. It looked like he wasn’t going to survive being in New York at the start of the film: people weren’t putting up with his shit. The movie is really funny, definitely worth checking out.
