John Oliver strikes in Qatar

Finally, I’ve discovered a contribution by Ali G to Western civilization. It’s to pave the way for John Oliver.

 

Here he is pouncing on the unsuspecting and remarkably stoic Qatari ambassador to the U.N.

The "Jewish boat" bit was brilliantly wicked. What’s the poor guy supposed to do?

This is random, but every time I see Oliver I think of my friend Zahir Janmohamed. Something about his expression.

My, the skyline in the vicinity of the Ritz has changed in since I lived in Doha.

    Sociologist Paul Gilroy (of the ground-breaking anti-racist ‘There aint no black in the Union Jack’ fame) sees Ali G. as personifying contemporary hybridity in a very positive way. See his ‘After Empire’.

    Yes, I have seen this before – abolutely hilarious! A little unfair on the ambassador – he comes of well, though, don’t you think?

    I have seen this movie before – absolutely hilarious! A little unfair on the ambassador – he comes off well, though, don’t you think?
