Plus, we have them shows you speak of. I don't find Chris Rock overally funny. I mean, he is funny, but he's not as great as you make out.
hey, relax. it's just a thread. try not to turn this thing into a "ENGLAND vs US" thing. if you like ALI G/BORAT/SASCHA COHEN, then great for you. just don't make ridiculous assumptions about the US when you don't really have a good understanding of the culture here.
again, it's not that "Americans are late on the 'Ali G bandwagon'". it's just a different type of comedy that hasn't appealed to most americans, that's all.
the US has much respect for british comedy, especially Benny Hill & Monty Python, so don't think the reason why sascha cohen isn't very popular in the US is because he's from Europe. it's because he's just not as creative as other comedians or television personalities these days.
for the record: chris rock is far more entertaining than sascha cohen. if you don't think so, then something is wrong with you. put aside your nationality for a second and i'm sure as much as you'd hate to admit it, chris rock is much funnier.
