John Oliver previews new HBO show for Jon Stewart
Sadly, Jo(h)ns Oliver and Stewart did not bring back the Carlos Danger dance when the former Daily Show correspondent stopped by his old stomping grounds last night.
The pair did, however, discuss Oliver’s new series, Last Week Tonight, which debuts on HBO Sunday. And you know what that means: “HBO will let me say whatever the f— I want!” Oliver bragged to his old boss. Additionally, we can expect a whole lotta nudity: “I’m pantless for the first three episodes.”
But seriously, folks: It’s a treat to watch Oliver and Stewart reunited, and both comedians were clearly thrilled to be in each others’ company again. Watch the magic happen below — after a brief decoy segment about the royal family’s recent tour of Australia and New Zealand. (The bit involves TDS‘s new senior British correspondent, “Jessica Smythe-Williams,” as well as Oliver’s reaction to meeting his American replacement Jordan Klepper. Pip pip!)
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver premieres Sunday, April 27 at 11 p.m. on HBO.
