Starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Ali G, Aiii, is a 100 minute compilation of the highlights of Da Ali G Show, including 30 minutes of previously unseen and uncensored material. Also making his DVD debut, courtesy of Kazakhstani television, we introduce Borat. New footage includes Ali G in the U.S with NASA and the National Rifle Association and features Paul Daniels and Peter Stringfellow in interview. Also on this DVD, the most memorable moments from Da Ali G Show--interviews with guests Gail Porter, Mohammed Al Fayed, Jarvis Cocker, Ali G at the Cannes P*rn Festival and much more.
By the time Ali G--the inspired creation of comedian Sacha Baron Cohen who debuted on the lame satirical series The 11 O'Clock Show--first got his own series, the gangsta rapper from Berkshire was already one of the biggest things on TV. Ali G--Aiiii is a compilation of the best bits from his own series, Da Ali G Show. Part chat show (Paul Daniels makes a memorably awful appearance; Gail Porter turns up and Ali dims the house lights and gets all soppy), and part saucy variety show (Ali's duet with Jarvis Cocker is fun, but no-where near as good as his improvised rap with Mohammed Al Fayed "from Arrods"), the material here is richer and more varied than his 11 O'Clock appearances, which more or less depended on his interviewees not knowing he was stitching them up. At various points, Ali reports from the States--the Staines rapper's spiritual home, you suspect--and the bemused reactions of the unsuspecting people he meets there makes for some of the video's funniest moments ("Has anyone ever been killed by a gun?" he asks someone from the National Rifle Association).
Ali G--Aiii also features Cohen's newest character Borat, a reporter from Kazakhstani television who is producing a guide to Britain for his viewers back home. Amazingly, Cohen ran into trouble with the Kazakhstani embassy in Britain over his portrait of the bumbling reporter with only the faintest grasp of English, but in fact it's the Brits he interviews who patronise Borat who come off a lot worse. (See, for example, the embarrassed silence which greets Borat's attempt at introductory small talk at a society dinner party: "My wife, she is dead"!) Like the rest of the show, there is a smart satiric edge to the comedy but it's also very, very funny. Ali introduces the compilation, keepin' it real with a promise that profits from the sale of the video will be channelled back into the Staines ghetto. --Edward Lawrenson --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

A bit dated now, but yes you love him or hate him. No comedy collection should be without some "ALI G but perhap's even he would agree that time moves on and the new stuff "Dictator" etc are hopefully a precursor for more of Sacha's undoubted comic genius.

I’ve been a fan of Ali G for years so it’s always good to have a chance to dip into a bit of modern nostalgia and sit back to enjoy some alternate comedy, yet for all that the...Read more
