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)

Trivia

HBO initially planned on the program being on five nights a week. However, Oliver thought the pace of a daily program was taxing and thought one night a week would give them a better shot at a higher quality show. See more »

Alternate Versions

It is illegal in Great Britain to use video footage of Parliament for comedic purposes. Initially when episodes featuring such footage aired there the screen cut to black without explanation. For later episodes producers would substitute bizarre footage including for example comedian Gilbert Gottfried reading three-star Yelp reviews for restaurants in Boise, Idaho. See more »
