Ode to John Oliver

Jon Stewart has returned to “The Daily Show,” after leaving the show in John Oliver’s very capable hands for the past 12 weeks while he shot a movie. I’ve really enjoyed John Oliver’s British spin on the news this summer. He’s a great comic and will be sad to see him go (don’t get me wrong, I still love Jon Stewart!).

Here’s a mixtape of John Oliver’s best “Daily Show” moments!

The problem with 6’7″

Did you catch Stephen Merchant last week on “The Daily Show”?

I’ve always thought he was hilarious from his days writing for the UK version of “The Office” and “Extras” as well as his podcast with Ricky Gervais. He has a new project with Ricky Gervais called “Life’s Too Short,” which just started airing in the U.S. on HBO.

Check out his off-the-cuff interview with Jon Stewart, discussing the problem with being 6’7″. I love the back-and-forth and Stephen proves that he can definitely hold his own.

Jon Stewart Banned in the UK

Not sure if you’ve been following The Daily Show this week but Jon Stewart’s response yesterday to the UK censoring some Daily Show footage made me laugh out loud. A special thanks to the always fabulous @thatgirllise for the link and video!
