It takes an astute comedic mind to mock the state of the world and those who lead the world.
John Oliver is one of those astute comics.
For the last five years, he has hosted Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO.
Part comedy show and part reflection on the previous week’s events, John Oliver talks about the state of politics and the world that we live in as only he can.
Last Week Tonight, as far as I am concerned, is the one the best shows on television these days. Oliver pulls no punches, telling the truth about our world with the perfect British accent. It also helps that his program airs on HBO, giving him more freedom in terms of language and content than if his show was airing on one of the big 3 three networks.
I recommend it.
