Storyline

With his insightful wit and fearless candor, comedian John Oliver, formerly of the The Daily Show (1996), reviews the crazy current affairs happening in America and around the world. In doing so, he provides a wry perspective that punctures pomposity and cuts through all pretensions with comically outrageous audacity. In doing so, he can get to the heart of the matter of the world's most serious and absurd problems with plenty of laughs along the way. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Best of the Best
12 October 2015 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Way way way better than Stewart, Colbert, Noah. The way he combines comedy with real life issues in America is just tremendous. His coverage of FIFA and embattled president Sepp Blatter was ahead of the curve. If you're not watching this show you're missing out big time.

Oliver uses dry British wit, combined with some light-headed mockery to expose stupid people, organizations, or general events. The fact that so many people he names choose to respond to his segment, show they are clearly uncomfortable with how bad he makes them look. It's utterly brilliant.

Deeper than the comedy though my hope is that the issues he discusses (like quality of sex education, censorship, food wastage), bring forward positive change. It's not enough to just talk about it. I hope lawmakers/officials are paying attention and act on the issues that Oliver exposes.
