Lord Monckton Gets Punked By Australian TV Satirists

YO - check this out.

Jet-setting climate change denier Lord Christopher Monckton has been revealed on Australian television as a fictional character created by comedy genius Sasha Baron Cohen, who also gave the world Borat, Ali G and Bruno.

Actually, that's not quite true.

But Australia's leading TV satire show has screened an interview with Lord Monckton where his interrogator, comedian Craig Reucassel, continually hinted that he thought the British hereditary peer was an alter-ego of Baron Cohen's.

The stunt was broadcast on popular ABC TV show The Hamster Wheel which “mourns the death of journalism” and is the latest offering from Australia's best known comedy satire group, The Chaser, who are famous for their risque set pieces.
