Fair point. Forgot about that art gallery lady.
This show is crazy!
Major Morad is the most successful character but I have to say that rap battle was pretty good too. They didn’t even have the redneck guy Billy Wayne Ruddick on this week - the most humor they seem to get out of him (so far) is people rolling their eyes at him.
The quinceanera bit was crazy. The cops had to thinking WTF? (Assuming they were real).
Roy Moore bit was funny with the detector. Pretty much the stuff he was going along with about Alabama as well.
I don't think there was any way those cops were real.
The setup for the Quinceanera was hilarious. When he pulled out the underwear with the fake privates and then put them on and had all the men feel it to see how real it felt, I was falling out of my chair.
I just can't believe what people will go along with. I would hope that I would have the sense to no follow along (since I don't believe what he was saying), but I know the compulsion to conform and listen to "authority" is a very strong force.
I think the makeup work on the jawbone of the Capt. Morad character is pretty bad. I would think that if you were standing in front of him in person, it would be very distracting and make you wonder if there's something going on with this guy's face.
I have to give props to the Republican couple that hosted Prof. Cain-N’Degeocello for dinner. He tried to provoke them, but they never took the bait, as far as I saw, nor said anything embarrassing for their side during the segment.
Although I suppose the alternate perspective is that they really should've clued in to the joke...
BTW, notice that Erran Morad's rank changes in every segment. He's been a captain, a major, a colonel and a general, at least.
Why does he (Erran Morad) say something like "this is something I learned in the Mossad, I mean, not in the Mossad"? Does the Mossad not like people pretending to be in the Mossad for the purposes of entertainment?
To show that the dupes he's talking to are even dumber than you thought!
I think it’s to give more credibility to the story for the dupes, like he’s just remembering he’s not officially supposed to tell anyone he used to be in the Mossad or disclose what goes on there internally, and he’s accidentally letting them in on the secret, so he’s taking a step back from that statement that this is associated with the Mossad.
Exactly. The Mossad is like Israel's version of the CIA, and their spies aren't supposed to disclose that they are/were spies, any more than our agents are.
The rap battle was great
OMG, the one with the vagina briefs. I'm not finding that I enjoy all the segments and Cohen is just on the verge of cringey for me. But some of it is so hilarious.
Local Atlanta news interviewed the guy that was filming within the pinata. He said the cops were fake and when he noticed it, that is when the segment ended as he got a little angry and walked out.

I think that's his goal -- to straddle the cringe line, as it were.
Everything was getting a little repetitive until the segment about buying a boat for Assad. That was epic.
My friends and I used to have long conversations in gibbrish in elevators or hallways (back in college)...complete with laughter and interruptions just like a normal conversation...people would just be going crazy trying to figure out what language we were using...I loved that part of it in the segment...
