John Oliver started out as the quirky British comedian on The Daily Show who did hilarious outsider comedy about America and out odd system of governance in this country. After successful years of being on The Daily Show, John Oliver moved over to his own show on HBO called The Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. And after 5 years, his show is the most influential on TV, although most people watch it on YouTube. He’s used comedy to highlight the worst problems in our society and he does so brilliantly.
