Personal Quote:

[on preparing for his new show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (2014)] We're trying to build the machine that will one day make fun of stories that haven't happened yet.

Trivia:

He has English and Irish ancestry. On his father's side, he is the grandson of Osborne George Oliver, an electricity board official, and Charlotte Hester Girdlestone, a religious education adviser. See more »
