As portrayed by Cohen, the British “journalist” called Ali G is a lewd, disrespectful and typically unintelligent personality, showing up for interviews in his trademark attire: baggy clothes, skull cap, yellow sunglasses and various rings and chains. Still, the Cohen character managed to land one-on-ones with several high profile personalities in the entertainment industry, politics and other areas of life.
After some of those tense encounters, it’s truly no surprise that Cohen has had to retire the Ali G persona for good. Luckily, these moments live eternally in our hearts and minds… and on the Internet, of course. Without further ado, my five favorite Ali G interviews!
