Did the British Empire really do worse things that we've seen recently?
24 April 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

If you found John Oliver hilarious as a correspondent on "The Daily Show", wait till you see him in concert. Discussing some of the events of the past few years, Oliver compares and contrasts the British and American empires, fair trade (why does basic human dignity need its own label?), and how low African-Americans were considered in Hurricane Katrina. He's right on about everything. I wonder whether or not the British Empire really was worse than we've seen happen in the world during the past few years.

I guess that the one good thing about so much in the world being so screwed up is that it always makes for some really great comedy. John Oliver is certainly a great comedian, as are all the other people on "The Daily Show". I definitely recommend this one.
