Personal Quote:

[on Boris Johnson] A man with such horrifically poor judgment, he wasn't just Britain's most ardent advocate for pulling out of the EU, he may be its strongest argument for pulling out in general. See more »

Trivia:

Attributes his success in the US to fellow Brit Ricky Gervais who 'blindly' recommended him to Jon Stewart, host of The Daily Show (1996), where Oliver served a 7-year tenure before landing his own Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (2014). See more »
