My name a' Borat. From Albania!
I have come across some early Ali G and Borat material which was found by my main man Winston O’boogie on Twitter.
Check out the videos on the Plastic Ono blog where you see an early Ali G character introducing himself as ‘MC Jocelyn’ and also a Borat character who says he is from Albania.

It has been reported that Erkin Rakishev, a film director in Kazakhstan has shot a sequel to Borat Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan. Kazakh national Rakishev did not see the funny side of the original Borat film, and so has decided to film a sequel named ‘My Brother, Borat’ to counter balance the country’s image created by Cohen’s character.
The film trails an American journalist called John, who after watching the original Borat movie, decides to visit Kazakhstan. He goes in search of the character’s fictional home village Kusek, but is shocked to find a modern and developed city. John recalls in the movie that Borat mentioned his mentally ill brother Bilo,” says Rakishev. He finds Bilo in a psychiatric ward along with Osama Bin
The New York Daily News reports on how Cohen has hired two gay prostitutes for a sex scene in his forthcoming Bruno movie.
Director Dan Mazer called on David Forest (who was last year linked to the death of a millionaire hedge fund manager) as he was prepared to do full frontal nudity, and could help cast another gay actors.
“We auditioned about 10 actors,” says Forest. They finally settled on triple-X stars Paul Barba (usually billed as “Tony Capucci”) and John Martel (known to fans as “Tyler Saint”). Cohen summoned Barba and Martel to the Aramano Hotel in Burbank.
“There’s a scene where Bruno comes to the hotel with some guys,” says Forest. “They’re all trying to get Bruno to come upstairs for an orgy. Five guys are there. Two of them are my guys. Bruno apparently doesn’t want to join the party, but he watches through the window. I’m told it’s hilarious.”
In other news, it has been reported that tourism in Kazakhstan has rocketed since Borat came on the scene. Although the Kazakh people still see Borat as an insult to their country, it looks like a ‘thank you’ is also due.
Kazakh official Kenzhebay Satzhanov said “the film has become free advertising for Kazakhstan. In the last six months, tourism has grown by 13%.
Sexy time indeed!

You may remember from the film Nicolae Tudorache – who had a rubber sex toy attached to his amputated arm. He has said ‘It is disgusting. They conned us into doing all these things and never told us anything about what was going on. They made us look like primitives; like uncivilised savages’.
