I wonder if it is true though.
I never liked that character.
I despise Borat. Ali G was alright but Borat is just a joke. He is a copy and not a good one at that and is also highly insulting mainly to Jews which i despise.
How is he insulting jews? It is called satire. Everyone is entitled to his opinion. You can find it funny, tasteless, hilarious or childish. But saying he's insulting jews shows off your ignorance of not understanding the concept of irony.
It's not the jews he's insulting when he makes an antisemitic remark, it's the kazaks.
I'm not much a fan of this kind of comedy but I find Borat absolutely hilarious.
*on a PC. probably bd pselling
Sorry to burst your bubble, but that guy aint Kazak. He's Turkish.
-Scroll all the way down.
For the record, I find Da Ali G Show freakin' hilarious, no matter how stupid it is.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but he's Jewish. Hence the irony mentioned. Ali G, Borat, and Bruno are all portrayed by the same actor, a Jewish-Brit.
Listen to other things that he has done. "Kill all the Jews, Kill all the dirty Jews" "throw the Jew down the well", it is insulting and distasteful.
You realise Sacha Baron Cohen is Jewish don't you?
Personally when you can't take the p*ss out of yourself is the the day you've lost the plot.
Each to his own I suppose.
Yes, kill those Jews, especially those naughty brainy ones that live in England.
Dude, scroll up, he is Jewish.
I personally find a lot of the stuff he does very funny. For example, the bit where he was talking about keeping your wife in a cage had me splitting my sides
Sacha Baron Cohen is a comedic GENIUS! I've been a big fan of his for a long time, and I'm glad he is going to be cashing in BIG with the release of his borat movie. For all you haters (of course there always has to be some), come on, get a sense of humor.
I find Cohen sporadically funny but his ability to stay in character all the time is impressive.
As a british-jew, I found the 'flush the jews down the well' scene the best of all Borat scenes. It did not make fun of kazaks (as some have implied), it actually made fun of the ignorant americans singing along. How on earth did some people not get that?
It's not 'getting it'. It's just that making fun of Americans is too easy
But then they think that he is making fun of Kazaks. I need a rant against Americans...but I don't think that this forum is the place to have it.
You can buy the album from his movie on itunes now and it is great!!
Going to see this ASAP. Dude cracks me up.
I'm a big fan of his swimsuit.
as an american atheist jew, I love Borat, and Throw the Jew down the Well is hillarious
As a madman, I find him clever, insightful and hilarious.
I can't put my finger on what he's insulting, perhaps he's insulting our perception of what he should be. He's from Kazakhstan but frequently drops in Polish words (though they might share the same language?), his accent seems to be 'general' middle east along with his beliefs. The way I see it Borat is just an amalgamation of that part of the world and what we'd expect for someone there to be like.
Or you could just say it's **** funny
http://youtube.com/watch?v=E_OB4K4_9_0 is very Borat like.

For those of you that don't get it, I suggest you read a bit about him. How can anyone really believe singing about 'throwing jews down the well' in the 21st century is anything but satire?
The Official Borat site as linked to from the movie trailers.
Agreed. I watched him on Jonathan Ross last night, and it occurred to me ...when does he snap out of being Borat and become himself again?
I guess this will be the end of Borat, now the secret's out.
