Sacha Baron Cohen released a short video from his upcoming show in an attempt at self-promotion, and he featured Dick Cheney, the former vice president of the United States. On July 4th, Cohen posted a teaser for his upcoming show detailing his relationship with the president, Donald Trump.
Cohen showed a video of Donald Trump insulting him for Cohen’s movie, Borat, claiming that he wasn’t that funny, and had to go back to school for comedy education.
In a report from Indiewire, the new show out called, Who Is American? comes out on the 15th of July, around 10 pm, on Showtime. As you may know, Cohen isn’t the only one to come out with a TV series regarding the derided president, Donald Trump.
Tom Arnold, the ex-husband of Roseanne Barr, announced that he had a show coming out called, Hunt For The Trump Tapes, and it will look for footage of the president saying the “N-word,” for the sake of impeachment.
However, not everyone has been on board for Tom Arnold’s show. According to the Washington Times, Tom’s new show threatens or tarnishes the reputation of Vice’s “hard-hitting” style of journalism.
The show, appearing on Viceland, seems like it would be better off appearing on Comedy Central, rather than the Vice network. Regardless, it will be good for ratings, considering Trump has been controversial, and Sacha Baron Cohen’s style of comedy might have something refreshing to add to the entertainment and political world.
Cohen previously did a fake documentary called, The Dictator, which dealt with Arab stereotypes as well as Arab dictators in the Middle East.
At the same time as the release of the film, the world was standing by as the Arab Springs took root, and protestors took to the streets in support of democracy. Cohen also made a documentary called, Bruno, that dealt with gay stereotypes.
