"That's the first time I've ever signed a waterboard", he says.

"We'd like to tell you about a new comedy that's coming, but we can't", the network said in their promotional video.

"Imagine if Sacha Baron Cohen had been undercover secretly filming a new show for a year", Showtime suggests in the teaser for a new TV show from the notorious prankster behind Ali G, Borat, and Brüno.

Now the actor has shared a second video which teases what has been reported to be a new series for Showtime.

That's right, Cohen got a former American vice-president to sign his waterboard kit. "You've been warned" the posters tease, while giving us the first glance of Cohen's character - a guy suspiciously peeking out of windows with various eyewear.

The new Sacha Baron Cohen show will premiere on Showtime July 15.

On the Fourth of July holiday, Cohen also tweeted a video mocking Trump. Other than Trump, Baron Cohen could also be targeting other celebrities.
