Sacha Baron Cohen’s Bruno: strip tease for Conan O’Brien, crazy LA premiere


Just when you thought it couldn’t get any crazier… Sacha Baron Cohen shows up. So far, in his Cohen’s epic world tour to promote Bruno, Cohen has showed up in character all over Europe – and now he’s brought his act to America. We’ve already seen Sacha as a well-endowed bull and some kind of not-so-well-endowed pink-clad furry, so you know Bruno had to bring it big time for the Los Angeles premiere at Grauman’s Chinese theater. So what did he do? He came riding down Hollywood Boulevard on some king of large, mirrored tank. That tank must have cost a fortune to … rent? Buy? Lease? How in the world do get a mirrored tank? Bruno left the furry costumes at home, instead opting to wear some kind of sketchy faux-military uniform which looks like a low-cut vest and Daisy Dukes. Oh, Bruno. I was kind of hoping for another furry costume.

But that’s not all! Bruno also showed up last night at the new Tonight Show, all to be interviewed by Conan O’Brien. And when I say “interviewed” I mean “give Conan some kind of crazy strip tease on his desk”. At the beginning of the interview, Conan tried to compliment Bruno by saying he has a “sexy whisper” but honestly, Bruno is starting to sound a little bit like Austin Powers. After some more talking, Conan asks Bruno to dance for him. Lady Gaga comes over the speakers, and Bruno then dry-humps the desk (that poor desk). Dancing on the desk, then Bruno straddles Conan and … dry humps him. That poor Conan. While I admire Sacha’s commitment to character – and really, I do, he’s a performance artist at this point – the whole thing is a little over-the-top. But that’s how you do performance art, Joaquin Phoenix.

    Ok SBC you win. Your trip to Conan was very funny!

  2. BlueSkies says:

    The Cirque du Soleil pole dancing after this bit was interesting to watch. You know, real talent but very racy.

  3. princess pee says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever felt this way before… but I am totally jealous of his legs. Damn!

  4. ash says:

    yes blueskies, if she had one more vadge shot i may have turned the tv off. Sasha was really funny. Way to take it like a man Conan!

  5. Bob Lawblaw says:

    wow, Conan had him back after he tried to harvest his pubes as Borat? I’m surprised.

    p.s. Sacha does have fantastic legs, it’s true.

  6. Tia says:

    Sacha is such a wierdo. Who thinks this crap is funny?

  7. TONY says:

    His humor is stupid and juvenile. Who’s going to watch this crap movie other than a bunch of 14 year old boys???

  8. BlueSkies says:

    He reminds me so much of Adam Sandler. Why?

  9. Allie says:

    I do think Sacha Baron Cohen is very talented and his ability to invent new characters like Borat. But his performance on the Tonight Show, just wasn’t funny. (Kudos to Conan for not slapping the crap out of him) His “Austrian” accent was very weak, and he kept slipping into his native British accent.
    The trailers for “Bruno” do look funny though.

    im excited for this movie! Controversial- yes. Way too far- yes. Crossed the line- yes. But thats what makes truly hilarious comedy.

    I think Sacha is hilarious and I am no fourteen year old. He is so over the top and extrema, you gotta love it. I also have always felt his heart is in the right place and have never been offended by his material.
