The Publicists' / Assistants' Revenge

Da Ali G Show is a comedy interview show on HBO. Sacha Baron Cohen, the comedian/actor, plays these different parts and then interviews people in a combination of British English, rap slang, and his own slang. The show has been on HBO for a couple of years, and there was some buzz about Ali G last year that has built up moreso this year.

Then, how do explain assistants and publicists still booking their clients and bosses on the show?

My only answer - revenge. Publicists and assistants are supposed to be plugged into modern culture, into what's new and hip. They know Ali G. They know his show. They know what goes on.

So, maybe it's a karmic revenge for how celebrities treat the assistants and publicists.



  1. I'm interested in an internship with your company-- want to be a future publicist, can you help??

  2. You posted an anonymous comment! Not an easy way to find you....

  3. Jeremy, this made me chuckle. As a former assistant and publicist, the irony of how do you find the client if you can't find the publicist was not lost on me! I recommend the "future publicist" who posted actually first get an internship in communications. I write press releases, bios, items and marketing copy on a freelance basis if you ever need to source out some assignments.
