Who Is America?: Season 1 (2018)


Critic Consensus: Fleetingly funny and all too relevant, Who is America? proves Sacha Baron Cohen still has something to say -- though its nihilistic approach may not be the right way to say it.

None of these guys are being polite. And the structural genius of Who Is America? is that it pops that excuse by airing these compromising segments next to sketches that feature Cohen's more familiar courtesy-extraction gags.

Where it works best in its nostalgic value, but where it might fall short is its overall longevity...fighting the absurd with more absurd can only go so far.

He's punching up, not down. He's finding powerful people in America-lobbyists, congressmen, talk-show hosts-and showing how easily they're swayed by charismatic buffoons with hyper-virile energy.

It seems slightly at odds with itself - a fitting metaphor for the current state of the country, perhaps, but unsatisfying as a piece of television.

A follow-up chat might make Who Is America? more worthwhile viewing, but for now, the show doesn't do enough to stand out among TV's mostly flimsy class of political satirists.

It justifies all of its inconsistency.

Doesn't feel as subversive at a time when politicians say appalling things all on their own.

Still, as inventive as Cohen's brand of comedy is - you have to marvel at his sheer gumption and the fact that he is still getting away with it - the show quickly starts to feel repetitive.

I don't think this show is going to be for everybody honestly... Sasha Baron Cohen is a lot to take as a character, as an actor.

The lack of interesting, incisive characters means that it never manages to make a coherent statement on the political climate. Everyone loves Borat, Ali G and Bruno, but no-one's going to be talking about OMGWhizzBoyOMG! in ten years.
