Sacha Baron Cohen’s early years

Before there was Borat, Brüno or The Dictator, there was Ali G in “Da Ali G Show.”

Ali G just might be my favorite of Sacha Baron Cohen’s alteregos. He was amazing on “The 11 O’Clock Show” (Britain’s answer to “The Daily Show”) and was unstoppable in “Da Ali G Show.” He could get away with so much more since no one had a clue who he was.

If you’ve never seen the show, seasons 1 and 2 are available on Netflix (sadly, not instant view…).
