Watch the video. He thinks this is very funy.
This is now waht passes for hilarious comedy in leftist America.
“What passes......” Before first coffee.
Among my peers, I am the only person who doesn’t “get” this guy. I see no humor. None.
Not any more funny than your tag line is blasphemous.
Imagine the laughs you’d get if you got on stage and shouted “Death to Islam!”.....
He is mocking islamist dictators. That is the entire point of his new movie.
He’s clearly insulting/parodying Ahmadinnerjacket of Iran!!
“When Harry kidnapped Sally”?
“You’ve Got Mailbomb!”
“My Sunday calendar is as empty as a North Korean grocery store!”
LMAO - hilarious stuff and clearly insulting both the failures of the current Iranian regime as well as an insult of the NoKo Commies.
And the entire thing is meant to jab HOLLYWEIRD in the eye IMO.
I am shcoked..outraged....
Confused....who is he exactly?
Likewise, I’ve never found anything funny about him. He’s just an artless punk. And I’ve got friends too that think he’s hysterical. Maybe there’s a “stupid and odious=funny” gene that we don’t have.
Exactly. It's not "LOL" funny, but neither are Shanklin's parodies that Limbaugh plays.
No wonder Hollywood doesn't make movies for our side.
This is what happens to a mind on Hollywood... reality is baseless; meaning is, well... meaningless; and humor is as a ingrown toe nail, lost on the imagination, banal and idiotic... wait, is what I just said redundant?
Boy, that sailed right over your head, didn’t it? Unless you mean your post to be sarcastic, too . . .
The intense desire of people to be offended turns off their satire detectors.
Come on, the guy calls for "Death to America" and congratulates Billy Crystal on hosting the Oscars.
This is just more of the toilet humor this guy regurgitated in his last couple of no-brow, low-brow and otherwise tasteless films.
All this "negative" publicity plays into the guy's PR strategy, which is transparent. No use in grumbling about it unless your prepared to burn his dacha.
Totally. And maybe people don't know the back story, here. The Oscars people dis-invited Sasha from the Oscars because he refused to guarantee them he wouldn't show up on the red carpet in character. So the video is obviously taking a shot at that.
Another untalented boob whose career had the half-life of a mercury isotope and who thinks he can resurrect it with an anti-America rant.
That is the point. I'm not a big fan of Cohen, but he's got cojones in that he's always pushing the edge of the envelope.
He's an equal opportunity offender, IMHO.
Do you understand the concept of “playing a character?”
You are aware that, say, Anthony Hopkins is not actually a cannibalistic serial killer, and that Tom Hanks isn’t actually retarded, and Tom Cruise isn’t actually a secret agent?
I’m guessing you didn’t actually watch the video, correct?
The isotopes are stable; I believe you meant radioisotope
This is funny! Excellent sarcasm. Plus he has the balls to insult both Hollyweirdos and Islamic nutjubs at the same time. Bravo!
Cohen mocks and ridicules Americans and they make him rich for it. What a country!
I get him perfectly, so do you. He’s laughing right in our faces at us.
Exactly. Some people don’t like to laugh. They are usually the same people who post on threads about tv shows and boast “I ain’t never watched tv since da 50’s!”
At least his tag line doesn’t have a grammar error.
I think the Three Stooges were definitely trying to boost the NDSAP when they made You Natzy Spy in 1940.
Great line.... I am going to remember it (and obviously steal it) for use later
Cohen’s “Dictator” humor is very similar to the satire on ThePeoplesCube - it’s shovel ready.
I’d like to see him to go Afghanistan and walk around in that getup and try to pull his Borat routine on them.
Now THAT would be funny! /sarc
You are correct. I would rather shave my eyes with a cheese grater. However, I have seen enough of his alleged "work" to know that he's as funny as a cancer ward.
Specifically I meant mercury 210, half-life of 310 nanoseconds or so ...
Actually 210 lasts 10 minutes, or about 2/3rds everyone’s average fame
I can live with 10 minutes. I’m not sure where I came up with the 310 nanos figure.
Tom Hanks is not a retard but the posters who think this movie is a anti-American screed might be.
I thought it was pretty funny.
Um, it's satire. Cohen is making fun of crazy Islamic dictators.
Hell, thanks to you I know about ten times more about quicksilver than I did before today ;)
Republic of Wadiya Facebook page is hilarious.
I'm looking forward to this movie.
Or those people who chime in on threads about celebrities to inform us that they have never heard of them. "Who is this Whitney Houston person you are all talking about? I have never heard of her. Of course, this is because I am morally superior to you all and I do not pollute my senses with satanic pop culture. Reading the Bible is all the entertainment anyone needs!"
Ditto. Catching up on comments, I think some people here seriously need a stiff drink or two and loosen up a bit. I have a sneaking suspicion Cohen will have a jihad declared against him from this movie.
‘Not any more funny than your tag line is blasphemous.’
Speaking of tag lines, uptoolate, the word ‘Republicans’ in yours is clearly plural and doesn’t need the apostrophe.
ha! Nicely played - glad someone called bs on that non-sensical comment
