Sacha Baron Cohen asks Who Is America?
As a series of secretive posters, teasers and an odd July 4th tweet have proven, Sacha Baron Cohen is back. His new Showtime series, Who Is America? premieres this Sunday at 10pm ET/PT and will be available to stream online and On Demand before that. Much like his acclaimed Da Ali G Show program, and the Borat and Brüno films it spawned, Who Is America? will consist of a series of interviews with prominent conservative American politicians and figures. Many of them, like former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, have already spoken out against Cohen.
