Show Summary

Note: Show aired on HBO, thus content contained in this guide may not be suitable for children.

The outrageous comedy/reality series stars British chameleon Sacha Baron Cohen, who travels across America in the guise of one of three totally different characters. Cohen's primary alter-ego is Ali G., who calls himself a "hip-hop journalist", but who's really a white rapper-wannabe.

When Cohen isn't putting Ali G and his "guests" in unusual and often delightfully uncomfortable situations, he's shedding his yellow gangsta track suit attire and slipping into two other memorable characters: Borat, an impossibly naive TV reporter from Kazakhstan, and Bruno, a gay Austrian fashionista. The series aired under the name 'Ali G in da USAiii' in the UK, on channel 4, were the original show aired.

    • A comedy show about Sacha baron cohen who dresses up in stupidly funny outfits that represent different people, a kasakstahnian,borat. A Homosexual, Bruno and a idiot'gangsta'Ali G. He goes on serious interviews and makes fun of people who think hes crazymoreless

      This is the most funniest programme in the history of television. When I first saw it I think I wet myself when Ali G was interviewing Buzz aldrin it was literally the funniest thing I had ever seen in my tewnty two years of living apart from the new borat film that baron cohen made which was undescribabley funny. If you watched Ali G and didnt laugh for any sketches then you are not human because i cant even go one single clip without my head falling off with laughter. I would reccomend this show to anybody who has a sense of humour!moreless
    • Boyakasha, hear me now. This is some fine piece of entertainment.

      Da Ali G Show is a show based on the fictional character Ali G. A white Englishman that tries to be like an African-American gangster. In the show Ali G, played by very funny Sacha Baron Cohen, has all this interviews with more or less famous politicians and civil servants. But the questions he asks them are different than other interviewers, his questions literally are nonsense. Then you get to see the people trying to answer and really thinking he is that stupid. Other characters that appear frequently on the show is Kazakhi Borat and German Bruno (also played by Sacha Baron Cohen). Borat is by my opinion the funnier, as he acts like an Kazakhi reporter that tries to experience how life is in America. This leads to all sorts of hilarious situations.

      Respect, peace out.moreless

    • Ali G and Borat are a deadly mix of humor!

      Ali G in da US is a real classic and so funny! I right a lot of reviews about comedys and i only write them when it is worth and believe me it is!

      We all know Ali G from the shows he made and ofcours the movie ( I don't know if you know he had a movie becouse I just found out a week ago. . . . ). He can be just so hilarieus and is my favorite rapper now( accually i don't like hiphop and r&b that much. . . .but Ali G is just so funny!)

      Ofcours after the movie almost everybode in the US an europe knows ho Borat is. In my oppinion he is even better then Ali G (sorry if you are a bigger Ali G-fan but I just think it is treu). Borat is so well made and funny , it's becouse he is from Kazackstan and people don't know what they'll expect. He can do a lot of things when the people who he is interviewing are thinking:" well that maybe a habite in those countries. . . . ". Borat , RESPECT MANN!!!moreless
    • Waz up dawgs!

      This has got to be one of the greatest things to ever hit television. From his great characters like Ali G the clueless bafoon interviewing people form the average shmo to high experienced politicions. Then there Borat the anti-semetic man from Kazakstan who goes around the country to find out things for his home country,"Throw the Jew down the Well" is a Finally there is the gay guy from Austria that goes to all the local fashion shows and interviews them for the sake of fashion. This show is awsome and I wish HBO would bring it back for all to enjoy.moreless
