The return of Respek
Let’s start the day on a lighter note...
Sacha Baron Cohen was honoured last night in London at the British Comedy Awards. (How low budget is that set? And I would never, ever ask them to change it. There’s a certain charm in that, non?) Ben Kingsley presented. And Ali G accepted. It’s been a while...
As I’ve said before, even though Borat was more successful by the books, Ali G was always funnier to me, and my favourite character. There’s no way to excuse him, you know? Like with Borat, at a certain point, he was almost endearing. Ali G on the other hand is indefensible and therefore elicits the most discomfort which, in this genre I suppose, though I’m no comedy student, is where the humour is rooted.
If only Ali G could tell The Dictator to f-ck off.
Here’s Sacha with Isla Fisher last night celebrating his achievement.
