Da Ali G Show airs in U.S.

Da Ali G Show is the name of two related satirical TV series 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 — Ali G, Borat Sagdiyev, and Brüno — who carry out ridiculous interviews with unsuspecting people (including celebrities and high-ranking officials).

On 23 July 2005 HBO announced they had no plans to make an additional season of the show.

The three characters from the show have each gone on to have movies starring themselves released: Ali G in Ali G Indahouse (2002), Borat in Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006) and Brüno in Brüno (2009).
