Sacha Noam Baron Cohen is an English actor, comedian, and writer.
A graduate of Christ's College, Cambridge, Baron Cohen is most widely known for creating and playing four fictional characters: Ali G, Borat Sagdiyev, Brüno Gehard and Admiral General Aladeen.
In most of his routines, Baron Cohen's characters interact with unsuspecting people who do not realise they are being set up for comic situations and self-revealing ridicule.
His other work includes voicing King Julien XIII in the Madagascar film series, starring in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Hugo and Les Misérables.
He made a cameo as a BBC News Anchor in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
He will play an English football hooligan brother of an Mi6 spy in the comedy film Grimsby, and Time in Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.
Baron Cohen was named Best Newcomer at the 1999 British Comedy Awards for The 11 O'Clock Show, and since then, his work has been further recognised with two BAFTA Awards for Da Ali G Show, several Emmy nominations, a nomination for an Academy Award for Writing Adapted Screenplay, and a Golden Globe for Best Actor for his work in the feature film Borat.
