Last Week Tonight With John Oliver

2 Seasons
Included with a subscription to:
John Oliver is an Emmy-winning writer on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart," but it wasn't until he guest-hosted that show in the summer of 2013 that HBO took notice of his "singular perspective and distinct voice." Thanks to that memorable gig, Oliver gets to show off his talent in front of HBO's camera on "Last Week Tonight." The late-night series sees the British comic review what happened the past seven days in news, politics and current events, all with a heavy dose of satire, of course. Since 2010, Oliver has been a fixture on Comedy Central hosting a stand-up show in New York, and he also co-writes and co-presents the popular weekly satirical podcast "The Bugle."
