Da Ali G Show is a comedy show, where comedian Sacha Baron Cohen interviews unsuspecting celebrities and guests as a variety of characters. The main character is Ali G, a satire on the British urban/"chav" culture, using rap and hip hop, rap and hip hop and other symbols of the American gangsta rap image, but subverting them by setting them in Staines. The show also features Borat, a discomforting Kazakhstani man who makes misogynist and culturally inappropriate references at every opportunity. Bruno is the other character which Baron Cohen plays - a gay, Austrian fashion and showbiz journalist, interviewing fashion and entertainment personalities, often outside nightclubs, and getting them to say outrageous things. The Borat character was used as the centrepiece of a feature-length film - Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, and the Bruno character is planned for a similar feature-length film.
