"That's the first time I ever signed a waterboard".

Well, you can't say Cohen didn't warn us.

Showtime released a photo of Cohen's new persona (above) and another teaser from over the weekend features a quick tease of him as well.

The show is titled Who Is America? and the first episode will drop in less than a week - on Sunday, July 15 at midnight.

On July 4th, the British comedian and actor Sacha Baron Cohen revived his long-dormant presence on Twitter to post an odd video edit of President Donald Trump ridiculing him.

Showtime Chief Executive David Nevins called Baron Cohen "the premier provocateur of our time" and said the series had been in the works during the past year. The posters teased images of Cohen's new characters for the series and an airtime of Sundays at 10 pm. Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics.


It then shows former Vice President Dick Cheney - who supports the use of waterboarding as an interrogation tool - signing a waterboard kit.

Sacha teased a clip Sunday on Twitter about his upcoming new project. and for unknown reasons Sacha decided Cheney was his next ideal victim by getting him to sign his "waterboard kit".

Ali G, Borat, husband of Aussie legend Isla Fisher, whatever it is he is up to in that pic up there - Sacha Baron Cohen has a few impressive roles under his belt.

Cohen had previously posted a tweet on July 4 featuring Donald Trump ripping into him, calling him a "third-rate character" and telling him to "go to school, learn about being amusing".

Also in 2012, Trump told HLN that Baron Cohen was a "bad guy" and a "moron" that "nobody cares about".
