The actor behind Ali G and the cult classic Borat is back with more outrageous material, as Sacha Baron Cohen teased his upcoming “most dangerous show in the history of television” with a clip of Dick Cheney signing a “waterboarding kit.”
A full promo of the show (which you can watch above) features Cheney and the famous #Resistance Pussyhat in a mysterious cameo.
“Imagine Sacha Baron Cohen had been undercover filming a new show, for a year?” asks a text slide from another teaser for the new show, which cuts to a montage of various, bizarre video shots.
Viewers can then hear Cohen asking the torture-loving former vice president, “Dick Cheney, is it possible to sign my waterboard kit?”
“Sure,” Cheney replies, signing the kit. “That’s a first — that’s the first time I ever signed a waterboard.”

Cohen’s new project is expected to drop on July 15, but little else is known about the show, as both Showtime and Cohen have only teased fans with vague promos — like the Cheney bit.
Another preview of the show was released on July 4th, with the British actor celebrating America’s Independence Day by playing an old vlog in which President Donald Trump mocked Cohen for supposedly not being funny.
