Dick Cheney Interview Teased for New Sacha Baron Cohen Show

Sacha Baron Cohen has given fans a tantalising first glimpse at what may be his most audacious project yet.

"Imagine Sacha Baron Cohen had been undercover filming a new show, for a year?"

The show is titled Who Is America? and the first episode will drop in less than a week - on Sunday, July 15 at midnight.

It's shocking, until you remember that Cheney doesn't consider simulated drowning torture and is also a heartless ghoul, so of course he has no problem signing a "waterboard kit".

"That's a first, that's the first time I ever signed a waterboard", Cheney adds. Posters for Cohen's show say that it airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET, so that lines up.

Cheney was asked by a thickly-accented voice off-camera: 'Is it possible to sign my waterboard kit?' As you've never seen him before'.

"Thrilled that 20 yrs after Ali G burst onto C4, Sacha Baron Cohen returns to the channel at his biting, hilarious best in Who is America?".

A new teaser trailer, which appears to feature the comedian adopting a Middle Eastern accent to coerce former United States vice-president Dick Cheney into signing a waterboarding kit was also released today, as his heavily trailed return to television for the first time in over a decade was officially announced.

"Sacha is a comedic genius who shocks you with his audacity, bravery and inventiveness", Showtime president and CEO David Nevins told Entertainment Weekly.

This teaser followed last week's video that included clips of Donald Trump saying that Cohen should get educated and punched in the face. Baron Cohen is also famous for "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan", and his other film credits include "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby", "Alice Through the Looking Glass", "Les Miserables", "Bruno", "Madagascar", "The Dictator", and "Hugo".
