Star of 'Borat' and 'Bruno' returns satirical gaze to U.S.

The network has touted the show as "the most unsafe ... in the history of television" and called Cohen's latest character "shameless" and "unhinged".

Showtime has revealed its new project with Sacha Baron Cohen. On the Fourth of July, Cohen tweeted a video featuring the president calling him a "third rate character" who he wished would get "punched in the face so many times right now [that] he'd be in a hospital".

"Sure", Cheney replies, signing the kit. "That's the first time I ever signed a waterboard". Asks a text slide in the teaser for Cohen's new show, which cuts to a montage of various, freaky video shots.

Then on Thursday, Variety reported that Cohen was in talks with Showtime for a brand new topical series, the format of which would be similar to Da Ali G Show.

Leave it to comedian Sacha Baron Cohen to convince his interview subjects to do just about anything.

Cohen is writing and directing the satirical series which Showtime says "will explore the diverse individuals, from the infamous to the unknown across the political and cultural spectrum, who populate our unique nation". Unclear what's creepier - that Sacha thought of this and actually asked Cheney, or that the former VP of the United States of America had no qualms signing a "waterboard kit". Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics.

The new Sacha Baron Cohen show will premiere on Showtime July 15.

Last week, however, Cohen resurfaced on Twitter and posted a video of Trump urging him to "go to school, learn about being amusing".

Also in 2012, Trump told HLN that Baron Cohen was a "bad guy" and a "moron" that "nobody cares about".
