Sacha Baron Cohen’s Newest Character Has Arrived, and He’s Here to Mock America

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has posted another teaser for his mysterious talk show project for Showtime, which reveals that the master stunt interviewer has landed none other than former Vice President Dick Cheney for what looks to be an insane sit down conversation. Then there's a flurry of images (including at least one that's NSFW) that ends with Cheney being hesitantly asked by Cohen to sign "a waterboard kit" and then autographing a water jug. This is gonna be a good 'un.

USA broadcaster Showtime is behind series, dubbing it "perhaps the most risky TV show in history". "That's the first time I ever signed a waterboard".

The first episode of Who Is America? premieres July 15 at midnight ET online and later on TV at 10 p.m. ET, with subsequent episodes following each Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime.
