LAST WEEK TONIGHT WITH JOHN OLIVER
8.30PM, MONDAY, FOXTEL’S COMEDY CHANNEL
EXPRESS from the US, Last Week Tonight is like a muchneeded dry martini. Each week John Oliver tries to make sense of the world of politics and media. He rose to fame from his appearances on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. His very English take on US politics is satirically brutal – devastatingly funny and yet pin point accurate. Oliver’s take-no-prisoners approach isn’t just for the northern hemisphere; Australian politicians have also come under fire in recent weeks, with welldirected barbs at Barnaby Joyce and Bob Katter.
