It used to be Jon Stewart’s Daily Show, until the penis jokes and lurid references to bowel movements drove us away.
Does he think his audience is comprised of twelve year olds?
We tried Stephen Colbert, but all we got was a headache.
In desperation, HBO was purchased. Bill Maher used to be good for a laugh. He isn’t any more. His guests are mediocre; his jokes are frequently in poor taste; he’s now become a member of the elite he loves to criticize.
There is, however, one great comedian left in this country. Mind, he’s only here because he emigrated from Britain. It’s a brand new show on HBO. Sadly, only half an hour, for now.
He cut his teeth with Jon Stewart. He made a better job of hosting the ‘Daily Show’ last summer, while Stewart was away, than the regular host ever had.
His name is John Oliver.
He’s on HBO Sunday night. The show is “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”. The first one was great. If he stays away from penis jokes, bowel movements – and isn’t so loud he gives us a headache, I think we’ll be happy with him.
