    Da Ali G Show is a British comedic television series that ran for one season on Channel 4 of the BBC. It was later purchased by HBO and new episodes appeared on American television for three seasons. Da Ali G Show features comedian Sasha Baron Cohen, who appears as different characters in numerous skits with unwitting participants. His "Ali G" character is a white rapper who hosts his own talk show in which he asks guests outlandish questions about politics, the media and (mostly) their personal lives. Most guests believe Ali G is perfectly serious about his questions, despite their absurd nature. Another popular character is "Borat Sagdiyev," an immigrant from Kazakhstan who often embarrasses those whom he is interviewing by engaging in anti-Semitic, misogynistic speech and strange Kazakh customs. Another regular character on Da Ali G Show is "Bruno," a gay Austrian television personality who typically ridicules his guests by having them offer exaggerated praise or criticism of celebrities. Both Borat and Bruno would later appear in successful American features films. moreless

    Like Kay's The Services before it, the show proceeds as a spoof documentary and captures six different yet similar slices of life in Bolton, with the now-familiar cast of Phoenix Nights playing multiple roles. Each episodes focuses on a different set of hilarious characters, including Brian Potter and the staff of the ill-fated Neptune club. The back story of Potter and the others is told here for the first time. If more restricted than Phoenix Nights, That Peter Kay Thing is still winningly hilarious and, unlike other BBC comedies which have since copied its format, extends a deep generosity to the people it lays bare on the screen.moreless

    Welcome to the Trigger Happy TV guide at TV.com. Trigger Happy TV is a show where a few people go across London doing some of the strangest, most random improvised acts and catching it all on tape. Most of the time, they dress up as animals and do something crazy or scream into their enormous cell phone, or they'll do another one of their insane ideas. Reruns of Trigger Happy TV are aired on Comedy Central. Comedy Central also created a new version of the show, which takes place in the United States. The US version has a new theme song and title sequence which feature scenes from the show, thereby ruining some jokes. Non-original music has been replaced with instrumental versions that sound just different enough to avoid lawsuits. Show Attributes: 13 regular episodes, 1 separate pilot, 2 specials Last Updated: May 16, 2004moreless
