Ok, so Borat is a character that a man from England by the name of Sasha Cohen plays. Sasha had a show on HBO called the Ali G show. Basically he plays different characters to push the limits on unsuspecting peopl, including a lot of high profile celebrities and govenrment. He is an extremely educated and intelligent man. He graduated top honors from Cambridge U with his masters. On his Ali G show, he did a lot of interviews on many provocative subjects, like abortion, and security and what not and just made fun of American culture and biasis. I have the first season of the Ali G show and it is exteremely hilarious.
