Laugh Out Loud with John Oliver at DPAC
John Oliver's graduation from the Daily Show to HBO has been nothing short of spectacular, and his political satire is as sharp as ever—this is comedy that has bite.
John Oliver is an Emmy and Writer's Guild Award winning writer. His HBO show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver presents a satirical look at the week in news, politics and current events. On his occasional breaks from television, John returns to his first love of stand-up and plays to sold-out venues across the US.
From 2006 to 2013 John was a correspondent and guest host on the multi-award winning The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He first came to prominence as a cutting-edge political stand up in the UK, with a string of television appearances and sold-out solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival. Having made the move to America in 2006 to work on The Daily Show, John won the Breakout Award at the Aspen Comedy Festival in 2007 and went on to write and star in his first hour long Comedy Central stand up special John Oliver: Terrifying Times
in 2008. Such was its success that John has now hosted four seasons of his own stand up series for Comedy Central, John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show, featuring a hand-picked selection of his favorite comedians.
There will be two shows on Friday, December 5 at 7:30pm and 10pm. Get your tickets now—they're gonna go quick!
