This is a normal post Isn't Cohen a jew though?
So is taking the piss out of himself/religion, whereas Davidson is just a racist prick?

Oh, and Davidson is as funny as bell-end cancer.

This is a normal post I've never seen him play a Jewish character
You mean Borat? The guy supposed to be from Kazakhstan?

This is a normal post There is a difference between him and Davidson
Sacha takes the stereotypes to extremes and tries to subvert them, and makes fun of us.
Davidson is a racist.

This is a normal post The very nice girl I met from Kazakhstan a few years back disagreed.
The fact that they had to film the scenes from Borat set in Kazakhstan in Romania is also a bit of a clue.

This is a normal post I'm sure it was terrible blow for the filmmakers that they couldn't get authentic Kazakh locations
and were forced to film in a cheap european location instead of a bureaucratic authoritarian shithole in the middle of nowhere

This is a normal post Yeah,
and the fact that Borat looks nothing like a Kazakh may have had something to do with it too.

This is a normal post Yes he is, Cohen is a pretty Zion-proof name.

This is a normal post Yes but his characters are not.
I've yet to see him do "wacky Hasidic land occupier"

This is a normal post God, it's so painful to watch.
Painful in a funny way. Have to keep stopping the video, taking a breather and then starting it again. Always had this 'problem' with Borat.

This is a normal post Hello there
Pretty free with the insults.
Would you like to have a discussion about it?

Pretty please?
Because having a conversation with you must be like chatting to Oscar Fucking Wilde.
Hellooooo! *knock knock* this thing on?

This is a normal post oscar fucking wilde? ooh you flatter me, you smooth talker
but really, that's going too far. what do you want from me? money? sex? it's all going so quickly *flutters eyelashes*

but seriously, I think comparing Sacha Baron Cohen to Jim Davidson seems like a retarded thing to do.
that's not me saying you're a retard.

I'm free to discuss this, and at a length that will get us both bored and wish we hadn't bothered.
internets comments, gotta love them

so the basis of my argument (and the mention of Chris Morris too) stems from the anger that I get when people miss the point of some comedians.
it's like saying "oh Kris Rocks bit about niggers is so racist" and getting all up in arms over it, in a Daily Mail kinda way

So when you compared him to Jim Davidson (who I personally find really offensive as his 'humour' appeals to the inner fears and hatred of people lacking any understanding of race/ immigration/ other people/ humanity/ love etc.) I couldn't believe it. Borat does get jokes from the funny accents, sure, but the real humour I think, is the peoples reactions to a 'silly foreigner' and I believe it comes from a place of compassion. Borat is a likeable character, despite his 'failings' He's just showing how ignorant people can be.
Where-as Davidson just says "they're different, they're stupid, they take our jobs, they've no place in 'our' country, haha, look at the paki, he smells and eats different food, isn't he worth derision" and it comes from a place of hate.

so to conclude
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.

and/ or

I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.

haha, sorry I'm being a dick, but I hope it's at least a bit funny

This is a normal post He was a dick at school mind
He just wandered around doing stupid voices and bad 'ghetto' impressions. Basically he was a jewish Ali G most of the time - He was also a bit a cnut and a bully to the younger kinds.

In fact both him and Matt Lucas were pricks at school now I think about it - Matt Lucas was the only person in the school allowed to wear a cap because he was bald.

David Baddiel was also at the same school but was a few years older; I once inherited one of his history books which had annotations all over the pictures and was f*cking hilarious. I lost it in one of my many house moves years later.
