Sacha Baron Cohen is up to his old tricks again, apparently returning to the partially unscripted comedy format that he popularized with Da Ali G Show but this time in a whole new political climate. Showtime has released a teaser trailer for Who is America?, a seven-episode series that will debut a new character conducting real interviews with people “from the infamous to the unknown across the political and cultural spectrum, who populate our unique nation.” It is possible this guerilla style of humour has already run its course, but at the very least it seems more exciting than his recent scripted comedy work on movies like The Dictator and The Brothers Grimsby. Who is America? premieres on Showtime this Sunday, July 15th; check out the teaser after the jump and see what you think.

    Can’t wait for this. Hopefully he’s banked a lot of content for multiple seasons.

    Please tell me he attended Trump university – that would be gold.
