Cohens joke on Madge-Guy Ritchie divorce falls short at the Golden GlobesJanuary 13th, 2009 - 2:06 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Jan 13 (ANI): English comedian Sacha Baron Cohens joke on Madonna and Guy Ritchie at the Golden Globes on January 11 failed to make the star-studded audience laugh, and instead earned him boos.
Cohen, 37, who had stepped out on stage to present the Best Comedy award to Woody Allen’’s Vicky Christina Barcelona, had been entertaining the crowd with jokes about the recession and its effects on Hollywood.
He was still doing fine with his one-liners about Victoria Beckham and Charlie Sheen, but when he touched on Madges divorce from Ritchie, saying that she had fired her personal assistant due to the recession, the crowd was not amused.
Madonna has had to get rid of one of her personal assistants. Our heart goes out to you, Guy Ritchie, Contactmusic quoted Cohen as saying.
Cohen starred alongside the singer in the promo for her 2000 hit Music. (ANI)
