About

Borat Sagdiyev is a fictional comedy character developed and performed by comedic actor Sacha Baron Cohen. First appearing on Cohen's Da Ali G Show, Borat later appeared in his own film Borat! Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan and its sequel Borat 2.

Origin

Originally named Alexi Krickler, the first incarnation of Borat appeared on the chat show F2F in 1996.[1][2]

The character began as a reoccurring segment on Cohen's Da Ali G Show, which premiered on March 30th, 2000. In these segments, Cohen as Borat would interview people in the United Kingdom and the United States as he would push social norms and manners in an attempt to provoke and discomfort interview subjects (example below).

Borat! Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

Aside from a cameo in the Ali G movie, Ali G Indahouse, Borat's first film appearance was the 2006 film Borat! Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. In the film, Cohen plays Borat who travels to the United States to propose to actor Pamela Anderson. The film received positive reviews, earning a 91% fresh rating (based on 220 reviews) on Rotten Tomatoes [3] and an Academy Award nomination for best screenplay.[4]



Borat 2

Borat 2 (official title: Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan) is an upcoming comedy film starring Sacha Baron Cohen. It is the sequel to 2004's Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.



My Wife

Borat Voice My Wife refers to a catchphrase by the Sacha Baron Cohen character Borat in the 2006 film Borat! Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. After being a popular reference to the film in the years following its release, it grew into an ironic signifier for a poor sense of humor, referenced in pop culture and parodied online, including a series of parodies on Twitter in which people would type the phrase "Borat voice my wife" and insert it into song lyrics.
