I found myself laughing at half of the Ali G show. The Kazack guy was funny, the interview with the Attorney General was funny. The German Eurotrash guy is a good concept, but isn't funny. The "Ali G becomes a cop" was brutal, and was also somewhat Vince Russo-ish in the "It's a setup, but you're supposed to think it's not" way.
It seems that I am - in no particular order - Zack Morris, John Adams, a Siren, Janeane Garofalo, Cheer Bear, Aphrodite, a Chihuahua, Data, Cletus the Slack Jawed Yokel, Amy-Wynn Pastor, Hydrogen, Bjork, Spider-Man, Boston, and a Chaotic Good Elvin Bard-Mage.
Doesn't he have a show on HBO now? The last time I remember seeing him was during all of the hoopla surrounding him being in that Madonna video. After that, I saw him hosting the Euro VMA's, but that was back in '99.

I never heard of him before I watched his HBO show last week after Bill Maher, so I didn't have any sort of preconceptions or anything so, I gotta tell you - it was pretty funny.
I agree, the fashion model guy was painful, but the stuff he did as Ali G (including how quickly he turned it into a conversation about porn), and especially him as the Pakistani guy being interviewed for the dating service. ("And if possible - three years plow experience."; "Yeah, you're not going to find a woman in America with plow experience. It's really not..."; "Okay, maybe just *some* plow experience.")\
EDIT: Oh, and the new Bill Maher show is fantastic as well, but you don't need me to tell you that.

A couple of comments.... I think CRZ's response of "Totally Gay" was probably a little callous. Perhaps a response of "No thanks, I don't believe I will" would have been better. That being said, who are we to questions his beliefs....
