Da Ali G Show is the name of two related satirical TV series created by and starring British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and featuring the character Ali G.
The first (2000) series originally aired on Channel 4 in the UK, and the second (2003–2004) series on HBO in the US. The second series was known as Ali G in da USAiii in the UK and Australia. In the series, Baron Cohen plays as three unorthodox journalists — the main character Ali G, a Kazakhstani named Borat Sagdiyev, and a gay Austrian named Brüno. The trio conduct interviews with unsuspecting people (many of whom are celebrities, high-ranking government officials and other well-known persons), during which they ask absurd and ridiculous questions.
On 23 July 2005 HBO announced they had no plans to make an additional season of the show.
Baron Cohen has gone on to make three films, each starring one of his three characters based from the show: Ali G Indahouse, Borat, and Brüno.
