WHO IS AMER­ICA? (SATIRE)

Sea­son 1 starts on Fri­day 1 Fe­bru­ary on M-Net (*101) at 22:35

Need to know: af­ter 2018’s US po­lit­i­cal cir­cus, we’re afraid to imag­ine the hor­rors that co­me­dian Sacha Baron Cohen’s am­bush in­ter­views shine a light on. Sacha (fa­mous for his alter egos Ali G and Bo­rat) has four in­ter­viewer per­sonas that he swaps be­tween and picks his tar­gets, sets them at ease and gets them to ex­pose their in­ner dirty bits on TV – as lob­by­ist Larry Pratt does when he com­ments that “chil­dren can make good sol­diers if they haven’t de­vel­oped a con­science yet”.

Ex-Is­raeli army colonel Er­ran Mo­rad (right) is one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s crazy new per­sonas for his po­lit­i­cal satire se­ries.
