Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Some people think English comedian Sacha Baron Cohen is a genius, others think he is a menace. At the very least he is a provocateur, and he's in rare form in the six episodes that comprise Ali G’s second season. Cohen has three alter egos: "hip-hop journalist" Ali G, whose grasp of current events is uneven at best; Borat, an anti-Semitic TV reporter from Kazakhstan; and Bruno, a flamboyantly gay Austrian fashion commentator. In these guises Cohen corners and interrogates real-life figures who, we are led to believe, think he's a real journalist. He peppers them with stupid questions and deliberately misinterprets their answers, all the time prodding them to say something foolish. Season 2 subjects -- or should we say victims? -- include veteran ABC newsman Sam Donaldson, paleo-conservative pundit Pat Buchanan, former L.A. police chief Daryl Gates, novelist Gore Vidal, and former EPA administrator Christine Todd Whitman. There's something indisputably sophomoric about Cohen's schtick, but in addition to getting laughs with his own remarks, he often elicits hysterically (if unintentionally) funny comments from his interviewees. Some will find Da Ali G Show irreverent and exasperating, but those approaching it with an open mind will recognize in Cohen's antics more than a touch of irony -- and some perceptive social commentary as well.
