If you needed one tiny excuse to justify a Stan subscription, it’s this.
We’ve just learned that the bloke that brought us Ali G, Bruno and Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen, will kick off his newest series in Australia this weekend.
Yep, Who Is America? will premiere on Stan this Sunday, with new episodes available weekly, on the same day as the US.
Two mysterious tweets this week have teased the show… one, a message from Trump against Cohen made with spliced audio, promising “Sacha graduates SOON”.

The other, a short video that Cohen’s been “undercover secretly filming a new show for a year” which ends with former US vice president Dick Cheney signing a “waterboarding kit.”

Series creators have reportedly said that Cohen will “employ his iconic brand of comedy by deception to lampoon a parade of highly memorable guests who are so highly recognisable we can’t even tell you who they are”.
