John Oliver stepped in for Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show so effortlessly that it was almost a foregone conclusion that he would have his own show before too long, for someone. That someone turned out to be HBO, the show Last Week Tonight With John Oliver. The show has been a huge hit in no small part due to the writing team. One of the most talented writers is an old friend of ogilvydo. If you missed it first time around here’s the interview we did with the smart and entertaining Will Tracy when he was editor of The Onion. Bonkers!
