John Oliver is an Emmy and Writer’s Guild award-winning writer, comedian, and host of HBO show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. On his occasional breaks from television, John returns to his first love of stand-up, performing to sold-out venues around the world.
From 2006 to 2013, he was a correspondent on the multi-award winning The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, guest-hosting the show for two months during Stewart’s absence in 2013.
He first came to prominence as a cutting-edge political stand-up in the U.K., with a string of television appearances and sold-out solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival. Having made the move to America in 2006 to work on The Daily Show, Oliver won the Breakout Award at the Aspen Comedy Festival in 2007. With long-time collaborator Andy Zaltzman, Oliver co-wrote and co-presented the hugely popular weekly satirical podcast The Bugle, which grew to be a chart-topping success, pulling more than 500,000 downloads a week. He wrote and starred in his first hour-long Comedy Central stand-up special John Oliver: Terrifying Times in 2008 and went on to host four seasons of his own stand-up series of Comedy Central, John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show, which featured a handpicked selection of his favorite comedians.
