Sacha Baron Cohen Teases New Show With 10-Minute Preview Clip
Controversial comedian Sacha Baron Cohen on Sunday morning posted online a 10-minute first-look video of his new Showtime series, Who Is America?, ahead of its premiere Sunday night.
The new show has already stirred much controversy, as Cohen successfully "duped" notable political figures such as Sarah Palin — who called the comedian's incognito impersonation of a veteran "truly sick" — and radio host Ted Koppel.
In the new clip, a heavily made-up Cohen appears as a character wanting to arm America's schoolchildren to prevent mass shootings. Cohen then sits down with pro-gun rights activist Philip Van Cleave in an interview where he asks, "They tried to stop 4-year-old children from having access to guns? What is the logic?"
He then enlisted Cleave's help to make an instructional gun video for toddlers.
