Just last month, Netflix celebrated Independence Day with a little teaser for the final season of House of Cards. Following the firing of Kevin Spacey for sexual misconduct, Robin Wright is now taking power as the President of the United States, and a new poster puts her in the powerful position that her husband Frank Underwood once held, literally and figuratively.
Plus, we finally have the premiere date for the final season, and it’ll arrive just in time for election season this fall. Read More »
Who is America? may be hit or miss when it comes to the quality of its episodes, but at least its viral clips always provide us a good, righteous laugh. This time around, the subject is disgraced former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose racist, anti-illegal immigrants antics were so heinous that he received a federal criminal conviction — until he was pardoned by his good friend, President Donald Trump. Arpaio was never brought to court for his crimes of racial profiling and contempt of court.
In swoops Sacha Baron Cohen, posing as an outrageous, orange-haired YouTuber from Finland, to humiliate Arpaio for us, in place of actual legal justice. In a spoof of the ubiquitous “unboxing” videos that are inexplicably a huge genre in the YouTube community, Baron Cohen manages to get Arpaio to yell about gun control to a toy donut and admit that he would probably accept a blowjob from Trump. All in a good day’s work.

Just when you thought 2018 couldn’t get any stranger, Winnie the Pooh has become a polarizing political figure…in China? And it’s not because of his lack of pants, nor his habit of stealing honey from bees (what’s up with that, Pooh!), but because he apparently has a striking resemblance to the President of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping. Because of that, a Christopher Robin China release has been denied by the country, as the Chinese government cracks down on all images of the silly old bear.

Tonight brings the debut of Sacha Baron Cohen‘s new series Who is America? to Showtime. The series hasn’t even aired and it’s already stirred up controversy as Sarah Palin admitted she had been duped by the comedian in an interview conducted by Sacha Baron Cohen in disguise.

If you’re wondering if this show will be worth paying for Showtime for a little bit, the cable network has released 10 minutes from the series, revealing one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s new characters: Colonel Erran Morad, an anti-terror expert. In the sneak preview of the series, he talks about arming children in schools, even as young as kindergarten age.

Nothing says a new Sacha Baron Cohen show like a slew of outraged conservative figures crying “victim” after being duped by the comedian/actor. And the number of Sacha Baron Cohen victims is starting to balloon as we get closer to the premiere of his Showtime comedy interview series Who is America?
But of course, it’s not Baron Cohen who is doing the duping. It’s a person named Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick, Jr., a “United Parcel veteran” who has nothing to do with Baron Cohen whatsoever. Though their bone structures look oddly similar.

Sacha Baron Cohen found plenty of fame by being a chameleon in front of the camera, hiding under the guise of various characters on Da Ali G Show. The HBO series paved the way for his big screen hit Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, and his less popular follow-up Brüno. But since then, Cohen hasn’t really delved into his comedic antics used to fool everyday people, celebrities and powerful politicians. Or so we thought.
Recently we learned that Sacha Baron Cohen has a new series coming to Showtime called Who Is America?. The premise of the series is along the lines of Da Ali G Show, featuring Cohen in disguise as various characters and speaking to people like former Vice President Dick Cheney, who signed a waterboard kit during his interview segment. It appears Cheney isn’t the only one who was tricked into being part of Cohen’s show. Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin ended up in front of Cohen’s camera, and she’s pretty pissed off about it. Read More »
