'''Ali G''' (whose "real" name is Alistair Leslie Graham) is the main character. He appears as a hip-hop artist, speaks in American hip-hop vernacular with a British accent, and is almost unbearably ignorant. He is the leader of the West Staines Massiv, a posse from "West" Staines, a wealthy suburb of London.

'''Borat''' is now the most well-known of the three alter-egos in ''Da Ali G Show''. Borat is an anti-Semitic, misogynistic, but friendly Kazakhstani who is in America to learn about its culture. Borat's schtick is to make people uncomfortable by seeming backward and/or prejudiced or to get them to agree with his statements. Since he is played as a foreigner, people are usually hesitant to call him on any of his difficulties. Borat's comments are often anti-Semitic (although Baron Cohen is Jewish) and completely insensitive, as when he comments that Barbara Bush's last name is used in his language to mean pubic hair, while he's talking to a friend and admirer of Mrs. Bush.

'''Brüno''' is a gay Austrian fashionista and journalist. Brüno's typical gags run in two forms: making people uncomfortable with his aggressive homosexuality and getting people in the fashion industry to go along with his hateful, ignorant and absurd statements. Some examples are interviewees saying that Osama bin Laden is cool, that people with bad fashion should be sent to concentration camps, and that fashion has saved more lives than doctors. [[Film/{{Bruno}} There's a Brüno movie, too]], in which Brüno's, er, ''member'' makes an appearance, along with Creator/HarrisonFord.

Ali G interviews people in the guise of a British talk show host interested in the media and politics. Some of his more impressive interviews include ones with Boutros Boutros-Gali (the U.N. Secretary General at the time; he called him Boutros Boutros Boutros Gali), Newt Gingrich, and James Baker (former U.S. Secretary of State, to whom he refers as "this geeza"). In an interview with C. Everett Koop, the former U.S. surgeon general, Ali G refers to the "dong bone" as an example of a bone that grows.

* ACappella: Ali G is a wannna-be hip-hop artist and he would do beatboxing from time to time, often improvising on the topic that was discussed. As if the guests were not trolled enough already.
* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: Borat's Khazak is actually mostly Hebrew. He also writes his notes in Hebrew, which has almost given up the joke on at least one occasion.
