Last Week Tonight - Show Summary
John Oliver, like Stephen Colbert, owes a lot to Jon Stewart. After being featured as a correspondent on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, it was his role as guest host on that show that resulted in his receiving a show on his own. Although the show had its beginnings on Comedy Central, the broadcast on HBO makes for some huge differences. Whereas shows like the Daily Show are broadcast five times a week, have different cast members and have "characters" and skits, Oliver's new show is once a week and a one man show. And, unlike Comedy Central, he can curse, which he does, enthusiastically. He also is not restrained by the need to be politically correct or to protect corporate sponsors. He has no problem calling people, politicians, or corporations on their baloney. He enthusiastically reports the news, as well as using inaccuracies of the media to serve as a stepping point to audience education. Although mostly a one person show, he will on occasion conduct interviews with noteworthy individuals.

  What Is Last Week Tonight with John Oliver TV Show Like?
HBO's answer to Comedy Central's The Daily Show with John Stewart, is Last Week Tonight With John Oliver. If it feels quite similar to The Daily Show, it could be because John Oliver was a writer and correspondent on that show, before starting his new show, Last Week Tonight on HBO in 2014. John has received accolades from both the TV Emmy's and the Writers Guild.

He first came to prominence as a cutting-edge political stand-up performer in the UK with a string of TV appearances and sold-out solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival. Oliver won the Breakout Award at the Aspen Comedy Festival in 2007 and went on to write and star in the Comedy Central stand-up special 'John Oliver: Terrifying Times,' followed by the series 'John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show,' which he has hosted for four seasons. John Oliver also writes and presents a satirical podcast called The Bugle, which can be found at www.thebuglepodcast.com. He hosts this show with his long-time collaborator Andy Zaltzman. Zaltman is another British comedian, who like Oliver, focuses on political material.
