Sacha Baron Cohen Convince a Food Critic to Eat Human Flesh
Sacha Baron Cohen’s Showtime show Who Is America? mocks the self-serious nature of restaurant criticism, while also lampooning the fine dining trend of menus driven by a personal narrative.
In the clip, Cohen plays Rick Sherman, a former convict who now serves high-end cuisine inspired by his experiences in prison. Sherman hosts a solo tasting for guest for Bill Jilla, the critic behind the food site dinnerreviews.com, who’s been told that “Rick’s prison-themed cuisine has the potential to earn a Michelin star.”
