(Huffington Post)   Sacha Baron Cohen is quickly becoming the Miley Cyrus of...well, not comedy considering he's not that funny, but maybe performance art? Like a sort of Andy Kaufman-lite?   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 29

Right, because of all the money that his films have lost, and his very unsuccessful television shows.

It's a shame about Sacha Baron Cohen.  He's shown a few times that he can be a very good actor, but falls back to attention whoring instead.  I don't know if he's like Andy Kaufman and is just an odd fellow, or is like Edward Norton and is just too farking pretentious for his own good.

Andy Kaufman-lite? You mean, he stopped being funny at all?
 
2013-11-11 12:33:45 PM  
Don't you mean Andy Dick??

Bruno was one of the most subversive characters on the Ali G show but the movie really sucked. Here's an example of the good old days.

Let me tell a joke more suited to subby's distinguished tastes:

*fart*


You're welcome.

I don't want to know where he put his stinky foam finger.
 
2013-11-11 12:54:22 PM  
Damn. I was hoping today for all the links to "Cohen murders old lady at awards show. Police ignore all the 911 calls from concerned viewers because of his elitist status."

/Well theres always Wednesday.

I think he's kinda funny. I like Borat, didn't see Bruno or the most recent one. He did a good job in Sweeny Todd.
 
2013-11-11 01:34:07 PM  
Fark off. The Ali G show was awesome, before he let all that fame get into his head.

I still have absolutely no idea how watched Bruno in its entirety. What a farking dumpster fire.

The part where he pretended to suck off the ghost of the Milli Vanilli guy in the psychic's office was pretty damn funny.

heh. well played.

and screw the haters. cohen is a frigging genius. and that bit killed!
 
2013-11-11 02:10:25 PM  
Has he killed all the lizards yet?
 
2013-11-11 02:11:32 PM  
Clip was funny. Ali G Show was funny, movie was ok. Borat was funny. Bruno was dumb. Dictator was ok.

But this is Fark, so only Anchorman is funny. (Which it isn't) Will Farrell is as funny as Sasha Baron Cohen.
 
2013-11-11 02:47:28 PM  
*Extremely* lite. I've yet to see anything of his that comes close to what Andy was capable of.
 
2013-11-11 02:54:17 PM  
Anybody who didn't laugh during Borat is dead inside and I do not value their opinions on humor.
 
2013-11-11 03:01:23 PM  
Yeah, let's see you try physical comedy like that, subby.
 
2013-11-11 04:38:00 PM  
If you couldn't laugh at the Running of the Jew in Borat, you probably can't laugh.
 
2013-11-11 05:07:02 PM  
I hated everything about Borat except the bit with the bear in the ice cream truck.
 
2013-11-11 07:00:20 PM  
I don't care about his acting, I just think he's hot when he's not in weird character get-up. I sympathised with his wife when she didn't want to kiss him when he was being Bruno.
 
2013-11-11 07:32:12 PM  
Cohen doesn't deserve to even be Tom Green's understudy let alone mentioned in the same sentence as Kaufman.
 
2013-11-11 08:22:44 PM  
What in the farking five hells does Miley Cyrus have to do with anything? What a terrible headline.
 
2013-11-11 08:40:27 PM  
Cohen is funnier than Andy Kaufman.

But that's not saying very much.
 
2013-11-12 12:03:26 AM  
Wow, lots of hate for him on Fark.  I thought Borat, Bruno, and the Ali G show were great.  He was also good in Hugo.  He seems super nice in interviews and I have to actually search him out to see clips of anyone talking about him.  I also thought this clip was small chuckle worthy.

People who have watched the original Ali G Shows and think he is not funny might trying removing the sticks from their anuses.

However, The Dictator was terrible, and the movie version of Bruno was not so great, and some of his appearances on late night talk shows were sub-par.  But to say that he was never funny is BS.

Agree.  The movies seem to suffer from the "SNL problem":  funny in individual one-off skits but tends to drag on when tied together in a movie.
