John Oliver On Making Fun Of Serious News

I’ve mentioned before what big fan I am of John Oliver and how happy I am that he now has his own “fake news” show, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, on HBO. Well now I have another reason to be happy, both for myself and for him, because the PBS NewsHourone of the very few news programs I actually respect – has taken note of his comedic genius as well!

An ‘outsider’ who is ‘drawn to making life difficult’ for himself? Clearly, John and I have nothing in common. Right? 🙄

And in case you thought that ‘follow-up’ piece was gonna be a ‘downer,’ all I can say is that you couldn’t be more wrong!

“Let’s all let the drama fester inside us like emotional volcanoes.” You see? I knew I was a Brit at heart! O_o

I want ice water.
