Personal Quote:

[on his desire to produce more in-depth analysis of news events] You see something that's a little bit weird, you start looking into it, and then three days in we have the same meeting which is basically going, 'Holy shit! This is a lot worse than we thought it was going to be'. The problem is that the loudest journalism in America is generally saying the least. 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 »
