His show was on HBO for a few years. Most people in the US knew him as Ali G before BORAT came out.

No he came to the States as Ali G first for a couple years. He lasted a couple seasons on a good network,HBO, and then his character died out. I think he filmed his shows in the States as well when he got here but Borat the movie really made him popular over here. It was controversal to Americans but I think the majority of us got the humor.

Yeah that is one of my favorite shows ever. When Cohen showed up in Talladega Nights as the gay frenchman, I almost fell out of my seat laughing, it was priceless.

If you've never seen the show, go on YouTube and type in Da Ali G Show, it's one of the funniest shows ever. He gets in to interview people like Donald Trump and Andy Rooney somehow. Andy Rooney is just priceless. They both end up kicking him out.

Just adding to what you are saying, look up Ali G with David Beckham and Posh, sry if I mispelled their names. It was for charity of some sort, funny as hell for those who have not seen it.
