Sacha Baron Cohen’s comedy sketch series “Who is America?” known for pillorying conservatives like Roy Moore, Corey Lewandowski, and former Vice President Dick Cheney, will not return for a second season.
Per Fox News:
Baron Cohen uttered, “No” when asked about a renewal during a rare out-of-character interview with Scott Feinberg for the Hollywood Reporter’s “Awards Chatter” podcast.
“I will never be able to get a politician to bare his buttocks while screaming ‘God bless America!’ and screaming the N-word,” Baron Cohen added.
Showtime, which aired the show, did not immediately respond to a Fox News request for comment early Thursday.
“It’s like ‘The Ali G Show’ in England — I did one season. And the idea is not to make it a ‘Seinfeld’ or an ‘SNL,'” Baron Cohen said during the interview. “It is grueling. … I’m too lazy to do this.”
The show also featured Bernie Sanders, Joe Arpaio, and O.J. Simpson as guests.
