"Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" is a talk show on HBO that is hosted by John Oliver ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show," "Community").

The topical comedy series presents a satirical look at the week in news, politics and current events. Taped in New York a few hours before it debuts on HBO, the show features a mix of Oliver's topical commentary on the previous week's events, pre-taped pieces and occasional guests. In the first season of the show, Oliver covered a wide range of topics, from net neutrality and Uganda's anti-LGBT laws, to beauty pageants, climate change and civil forfeiture abuse by the police.

"Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" is produced for HBO by Avalon Television, with John Oliver, Tim Carvell, James Taylor and Jon Thoday serving as executive producers, and Liz Stanton producing.
