PLANET AMER­ICA

LAST WEEK TONIGHT WITH JOHN OLIVER

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV GUIDE -

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.
