We're done here. Kill the lights on your way out, would you?

Not in my house.

Bleagh. Hurry up and make the Freddie Mercury biopic. We don't care about your old characters.

Good to see him. Small doses, no new movie or anything. Fine with me.

The "Borat" guy?
Or is it the Hannlie MonCyrus thing?
One of the Octomom's Olsen twins from Nelson?
Do the Bengals really have a chance to make the playoffs?

I enjoyed the Ali G movie, even with its ridiculousness.

Yes.


Me too - Ali G was his best character. He kind of went downhill from there (just my opinion).
 
2012-12-14 01:20:57 AM
I hate to be that guy, but he was so much funnier years ago before Borat came out and got popular. I'm pretty sure it has a lot to do with everyone saying, "Thazzzz uniiiiiiiiiizzzze!" all the time and ruining it for me.

Hmmm... reminds me of my old uncle that would come in with his witty "billy beer" comments....

Happy Hours: FarktheHeraldAngelSings: Lsherm: Was anyone demanding his return?

Yes.

It's gonna be harder for him to speak attack people now, though. If the target doesn't recognize him, their staff will. I heard when he was most effective, he acted like the "roadie" guy, setting up the gear, while some woman acted like she was the on-air personality. Then Sasha would step in last minute, camera rolling, and catch them off-guard. Mariah Carey was funny, Ron Paul was a riot. But none beat the community-type concerned citizens and folks from the original HBO series.

Also can't wait for the Freddie Mercury pic. Sure he can do it justice.

Ali G is farking brilliant. The camouflage scene in the movie was hilarious.

FarktheHeraldAngelSings: Lsherm: Was anyone demanding his return?

Yes.


Ali G was always funnier than Borat.

Borat is to Ali G as Mr Bean is to Blackadder.
 
2012-12-14 03:32:26 AM
isnt he a little too well known to pull this off anymore?

except two of these four things are genuinely funny, the other two are not...

hint: the unfunny two don't involve Rowan Atkinson

Agreed. If there's one thing Cohen knows how to do it is to take on a persona and he looks close enough to Freddie Mercury that I think he can pull it off.

We'll all be begging for a Queen reunion tour with Cohen playing Mercury when it comes out. If it comes out - is that still happening?

I was expecting another interview with Noam Chomsky.

In da house is a very, very good stoner movie.

Try it. You'll like it.

Ali G/Borat is only really funny when the interviewee doesn't get the joke, except I think for Barbara Walters, that was funny because she did figure the joke out. Unfortunately my googlefu is weak and I couldn't find it. He stopped to Ali G because too many people knew the character.

My personal favourite is the Posh and Beck interview, they did it knowing the character and showed what sports they were about it as it was done for charity. Another farmer has kindly posted the link above.

yay. All my hopes come true. The Andy Kaufman rip-off comes back alive just in time for me to still know he is a a terrible entertainer. yay.
I sincerely apologize to any young folk who understand that he is shiat.

Ali G is the only character that guy does that I can I watch for any length of time.

I don't get it either .A guy dresses up like Justin Bieber and talks with a british hip hop accent?

RexTalionis: We don't care about your old characters.


Well, some of us did, until he ran them all into the ground with those movies. I thought Borat and Bruno were hilarious in the show, and we went to the theater to see Borat and just didn't like it at all. I didn't even bother seeing Bruno after the terrible previews.

The movie was dreadful, but the interview with Pat Buchanan, UK's drug czar, C. Everett Koop, etc. are hilarious.

Just out of curiosity, what were the opinions of him on Fark before the Borat movie made it really big?

I just need to know if this was a constant hate-on or the Fark -it's-popular-now-it-sucks hate-on.

/loves Da Ali G show
//was that wrong? should i not have done that?
///welcome to fark

If you don't like Ali G you is being racialist.

I can only speak for myself, but I was a fan before Borat. Borat just made me more of a fan. The man is talented, even if he annoys some people.

Is that going to be a somewhat serious thing now? I'd be curious to see how Cohen does in drama.
