Sacha Baron Cohen

Is it just me, or does anyone else find Sacha Baron Cohen wholly unfunny and already a tiresome bore? As Ali G his mock interviews were very clever, and he was funny for maybe about 10 minutes as "Borat," and I even liked him when he portrayed an angel in Heaven in Curb Your Enthusiasm, but by now his whole shtick is worn and, worse, obviously calculated, and his movie hasn't even come out yet. Everything he does exudes a tincture of of insincerity, and he's just playing off offensive stereotypes anyway.

Maybe he is funny in Europe. Maybe he is funny if you're younger. I don't think he's funny at all.
