One of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, John Oliver, is an Emmy and Writer’s Guild Award winning writer. His HBO show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, which won a Peabody Award in April this year, presents a satirical look at the week in news, politics and current events and is enjoying a second series. On his occasional breaks from television, John returns to his first love of stand-up and plays to sold out venues across the US. And now for the first time he comes to Australia for a stand up tour.

“Wildly funny.” - The Telegraph

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.

With long-time collaborator Andy Zaltzman, John co-writes and co-presents the hugely popular weekly satirical podcast The Bugle. Its success has grown significantly since its inception in 2007 and now pulls in over 500,000 downloads a week.

“A wonderfully intelligent comic.” - Evening Standard

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 which was then released on DVD. Such was its success that John went on to host 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 favourite comedians.

“Comedy for smart people.” - The Sunday Times

He has a regular guest role on NBC’s sitcom Community, is the voice of Vanity Smurf in The Smurfs movie and its sequel The Smurfs 2, and has appeared in The Simpsons as Marge and Homer’s next-door neighbour, Booth Wilkes-John.

Further credits include starring in the Mike Myers’ movie The Love Guru, the Ardal O’Hanlon sitcom My Hero, and Important Things with Demetri Martin.

“Oliver is a master storyteller, stringing jokes together so tightly that not a syllable falls out of place”
The Onion

These are his highly anticipated first live shows in Australia. Book now to avoid disappointment.
