Sacha Baron Cohen very rarely gives interviews as himself, which is one reason why his appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show yesterday interested me greatly. Cohen is, after all, someone who makes his comedy out of highly original, boundary-breaking characters. It is obvious that there is a very sharp intelligence in action behind the satire of Ali G and Borat, and that this intelligence is not the typical work of just another smart comedian. Yesterday’s interview just scratched the surface, but hit on enough different topics to make it worthwhile.
