Borat is a character developed and portrayed by Sacha Baron Cohen. Hailing from Kazakhstan, he is a bigot in every sense. To create the character, Cohen went through some interesting stages of development.
What is there to say? Borat is the classic TV and movie character of our era. His full name is Borat Sagdiyev and he made his first appearance on Sacha Baron Cohen's HBO series Da Ali G Show before branching out to his own mega-successful movie. Borat is a Kazakhstani television reporter with a strong hatred against Jews and homosexuals. Characterized by his fake accent, bad English, and thick mustache, Borat's objective is to learn the American way of life.
Borat made his big-screen debut in 2006 with the release of Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan and Long Titles. His journey accross America was supposed to be to gain an understanding of American culture, but quickly became a means for Borat to find his true love.

The movie was noted for having virtually no script and featuring Baron Cohen interacting with real people; all dialogue improvised on the spot. Borat's movie is perhaps best remembered for its infamous "hotel scene" in which Borat and his producer Azamat wrestle each other naked and Borat recieves a healthy dosage of ballsack to the face. Throughout the movie, Borat does the following things:
Borat was #1 at the U.S. box office two weeks in a row and ultimately grossed over 14 times its budget, making it more successful than all of the Pirates of the Carribbean films combined and remains one of the most profitable films of all time. So keep this in mind Hollywood, though audiences like seeing explosions and stuff, they really want to see naked foreign men on top of each other.
