Seth Meyers interviews John Oliver

From NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers last night, a brief interview with John Oliver, host of Last Week Tonight on HBO. (It and Game of Thrones are literally the only things I’ve subscribed to HBO to watch.) I hesitate to call Last Week Tonight a comedy news show because it often does some excellent (if sometimes flawed and tendentious) serious reporting. But it’s not a conventional news show either, having a studio audience, and it is of course usually pretty entertaining.

Both parts of the interview are worth seeing, but the second, shorter segment is the funniest, featuring Oliver’s recollections of his British childhood, including a very small part as a child in a BBC production of Bleak House.
