Sacha Baron Cohen continues to target high-profile individuals with his scathing brand of comedy/social commentary.
Cohen’s Showtime series Who Is America? has seen the President of the Virginia Citizen’s Defense League take part in a shocking weapons training video aimed at toddlers and a Georgia lawmaker drop his pants and yelled the N word (he was subsequently forced to step down). Now, Roy Moore, a former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama who has been accused of sexual misconduct, one of whom was 14 at the time of the alleged incident, faces a fake device that he’s told can detect if you are a sex offender or a pedophile.
Yeah, it’s Cohen back as Israeli anti-terrorism expert Col. Erran Morad, and it’s another deeply uncomfortable moment from a show packed with them.
WHO IS AMERICA? is a half-hour series from comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, in his return to series television for the first time in more than a decade in the genre he created first in Da Ali G Show. In the works over the past year, WHO IS AMERICA? explores the diverse individuals who populate our unique nation, and features Baron Cohen experimenting in the playground of 2018 America.
