It appears Borat might be headed for a comeback.

Sacha Baron Cohen was seen filming in character in the Long Beach, California this week by a TikTok user who uploaded the clip.

Cohen, 48, wore a grey suit and drove a green pickup truck with a film crew rolling camera in a van ahead of him.

Familiar faced: Sacha Baron Cohen, 48, was seen filming in character as Borat in Long Beach, California on Wednesday 

The funnyman is best known for his characters such as Ali G, Mossad spy Eli Cohen and Brüno, among others.

Cohen, who is married to Isla Fisher, reprised the comedic character two years ago during the midterm elections in the U.S. in a social media post encouraging voting. 

He wrote, ‘I voted, Great Success’ while holding someone else’s identification card with an ‘I’ve voted’ sticker affixed to his suit.

The character was featured in the 2006 motion picture Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.

Cohen was seen in a disguise earlier this summer at a political event in Washington this past June.

The rally’s organizer Matt Marshall said he could tell it was Cohen through the ‘obvious disguise’ the performer was donning when he took to the stage to sing.

‘Like a fake nose and chin,’ he told NPR. ‘And he starts playing and the first thought when you hear his voice is, “Dude, is this like a bad impression of Borat?””

The appearance sparked speculation Cohen was filming the Showtime series Who Is America?, though Cohen said he was only going to do the one season of the variety show.

‘It’s like The Ali G Show in England,’ he said, speaking with The Hollywood Reporter in 2018. ‘I did one season. And the idea is not to make it a Seinfeld or a Saturday Night Live.’

Cohen told the outlet last year that he ‘was upset by’ Donald Trump getting elected president, spurring him to create the political satire.

‘That anger and disappointment and revulsion, I was expressing it by sort of sending friends emails, you know, sharing articles,’ he said. ‘And in the end, I felt I was so angry, I felt I actually have to channel that into some characters who could expose some of those people. I wanted to sit with those people who were his friends.’
