See Bruno on Letterman – he’s wearing conservative clothing and has this outrageous English accent while discussing an interview with a terrorist in the West Bank. What’s that all about? Oh that crazy, crazy Bruno!

  • Since you have all been wondering about my opinion regarding “Bruno,” I’ll put it to you very bluntly:
    he is annoying, overrated, and violence-inspiring.
    Only Hollywood and the Big Bagel could promote such
    unadulterated crap. Oh, yeah, he’s “very smart”; he attended Cambridge. Oh, and is that where he picked up
    his “outrageous…accent”? Whether he did or not, I’d
    like to be the first to bitch slap him back into the
    obscurity and anonymity from which he crawled. He and Letterman and Conan and anybody else who wants to talk with this p*tz deserve each other. I think that sums it up.

  • teachem2think ~ Who are you? and why do you think anyone was anxiously awaiting your opinion?

    I thought Sasha (not Bruno btw) was pretty darn articulate and sounded pretty knowledgeable with Letterman. I was happy he didn’t do the Bruno shtick like he did on Conan, I am pretty sure that was Dave’s idea.

  • teachem2think, I suppose Sacha Baron Cohen picked up his accent in his country of origin. You know, that offshore entertainment park with the queen and guards and old buildings and cucumber sandwiches. They might have dragons, too.

  • Too bad I have been boycotting Letterman for some time. He’s a chump.

  • I’m fairly certain Bruno will be as funny as Borat – which is pretty good, but not nearly as good as Cohen’s earlier material. If you can get a hold of it – watch “Da Ali G Show” – and I don’t mean the HBO version (still funnier than Borat) – I mean the original British version. That was brilliance. I can hope he’ll prove me wrong and go back to his comedic roots.

  • Don’t tell me you’re boycotting Letterman because he made a joke about Sarah Palin, Alex.

  • @Jack: you’ve got a better sense of humor than brunoborat.
    Unfortunately, I’m too pompous to be jealous…so I’ve been told.

    @Yoni C: I haven’t been here in 2.5 years. The last time I wrote was to a guy named “Joachim von T. Zu T.” Hope he’s still healthy. In any event, when I saw brunoborat,
    I couldn’t restrain my pent up rant. I will continue to eschew him, Letterman, and just about everything else, now that I think about it.

  • Interesting find, co-bloggers, click on teachem’s IP in the admin section to see who he shares a computer with.

  • His accent is not outrageous. I find that very offensive…

    Yes, we all speak like that in England. Especially those from North London.

    My mother is an Austrian-born Holocaust survivor. Hate the Austrians.

    We both think Bruno is brilliant!

  • Vicki,

    No. That was tactless and dirty and his non-apology was worse. But that’s not why. I’m not a prude. I like dirty jokes, even about under aged girls from time to time. JK.

    No, I’ve been boycotting him for years because he is a partisan hack, and what’s worse, he’s not funny anymore. There was a great article a few weeks back by Greg Gutfeld (an American Jew who’s not delusional) on Big Hollywood’s blog that talks specifically about how he lost his humor and charm, unlike when he was younger, back when I liked him.

    There’s nothing more annoying than a comedian who tries to be a journalist or a political analyst. Clown nose off when grilling right wingers they don’t like with that serious, credulous look, and clown nose back on when they are asked a question they can’t answer or the tables are turned. That’s why I despise Jon Stewart too, well, that and he’s a self-hating Jew IMO. I don’t find Leno funny, but I like his business sense, and it starts by being an equal opportunity offender and not alienating half of your viewership right off the bat.
