I havenít seen dictator, his schtick gets a little hard to digest at times. And the stories around Borat were kind of sad.

Heís a rich jerk who likes making fun of people, and even if the people he makes fun of deserve everything they get, it still feels kind of exploitative somehow. I enjoy a lot of his work but it makes me uncomfortable somehow.

oh i had kind of given up on him after Borat (that movie I enjoyed), I think I saw a few minutes of the dictator and gave up quickly, just thought it wasn't funny.

His power is definitely in getting people to say absurd shit like they mean it and he sure got that back on the new one. I mean I love it when gun-crazy republicans are made fools of, but even then it was hard to watch for me.

I think that's what makes it good though.

No no, I think he does a lot more than that, heís a live action troll really isnít he? He does a great job of exposing people for what they really are, which is why the Bernie Sanders bit is just funny and not shocking.

But what drives him to do this, is being a rich jerk who enjoys making fun of people. He comes from enough privilege that he can do this kind of thing for a living and not worry about the consequences. People like that rub me the wrong way.

Yeah I agree...itís good but just hard to watch and I donít really like the guy.

This kinderguardians shit blew my mind though. I mean itís important stuff, that heís doing. Bringing attitudes like this into the light. I guess i just prefer the Louis Theroux approach or something like that. But maybe Louis Theroux wouldnít be able to show how bad things are at the top, the way Sacha Baron Cohen does.

fair enough.

This new Israeli character reminds me of Freddie Mercury after surgery or something, which is no surprise since he was going to play in that Queen film

I’ll never forget the time sacha baron cohen subjected a packed theater of my midwestern biblebelted countryppl to the image of a naked, windmilling phallus the size of a semi-truck, which then pointed right in our faces as the mouth of the glans mouthed the word “Bruno”

For that alone i will always root for him, can’t wait to watch this new sht

I think what Cohen does is exactly the sort of thing people should be doing with their privilege. To me, it doesn't really matter how much privilege you have when you pull his sorts of stunts, that just determines how likely you are to live to tell the tale.

The problem with the new show as I've seen it in the first 2 episodes is that it seems that most of the guests are aware that they're taking part in a satire show.

The only segment that seemed legit was where he was at a council meeting proposing to build a mosque. That was fucking hilarious!

Meanwhile, fuzzy doesn't realize that the characters in FUBAR are satirizing him.

I mean he looks terrible, but, not to speak ill of the dead, I mean...nobody thought they were in some kind of parody video just because they were being interviewed by Joan Rivers
