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)

John Oliver is awesome
30 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

John Oliver is involved in one of the most tasteful shows I have come across which is currently in production. John pulls through with a very unique flavor which leaves the viewer thinking about the show long after it is over. His insightful outlook and commentary on a wide variety of issues is well worth the half hour (plus internet content). In my opinion, John doesn't, or at least attempts not to alienate any viewership the show may achieve but the show is perhaps designed to engage those with an open mind. The humorously named "Last Week Tonight" is a lot more than cheap laughs, and then some. In the few episodes that have aired so far, John has proved, at least to me personally, that him and his staff are capable of having very sophisticated opinions on some very deep issues. Honestly, I hope I can hear a lot more from John Oliver and the writers/staff involved!
