Sacha Baron Cohen

Sacha Baron Cohen (born c. 1972) is a British comedian, notable for his highly successful comedy character Ali G.

He was born into a middle-class Jewish family, the second of three sons of Gerald Baron Cohen and his wife Daniella. His father, who owns a menswear shop in Piccadilly, is originally from Wales, while his mother is from Israel.

Sacha attended Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School, a public school in Elstree[?], and went on to study history at Christ's College, Cambridge.

He shot to fame when his character Ali G started appearing on The Eleven O'Clock Show on Channel 4. He has now taken Ali G to the United States, where the character has been mostly met with bemusement, rather than amusement.

His show airs in the United States on HBO.
