One of the main problems that
(or however you spell the name) had
was that the success of
the Ali G character meant that
everyone knew him and so
everyone was aware of the
type of questions they could
be asked in an Ali G interview.
Despite that though there are still classic lines to be heard.
Also the sheer concept of
a white Jew taking the piss
out of black attitudes
kicks the arse of political correctness
and allows comedy to breathe again-
not that i'm suggesting that
Bernard manning is the pinacle of comedy you understand- far from it.
The Ali G. character takes the piss
out of an attitude not a race.
Some might argue that the
attitude is a result of discrimination
and the very fact that this
kind of humour is igniting
a debate about this same issue
proves i think the relevance rather that oldness of the comedy.
Anyhow what do ye all think of his Eastern European persona?
