Watch John Oliver Get Emotional as He Says Goodbye to ‘The Daily Show’
Last night marked John Oliver’s last night on The Daily Show, as he’s leaving to start his own HBO show. Jon Stewart marked the occasion with a very sweet tribute to Oliver’s seven years on the show. The clip shows some of his craziest characters and, the highlight, some of his craziest interviews. Remember when he got that pro-apartheid activist to say he was mad that black people never thanked white people for getting rid of apartheid in the first place? Oh man that was insane.
The whole thing is very sweet, but nothing’s as sweet as Oliver crying at the end. I’d say we’ll miss you John, but his HBO show starts next year so we’ll see you again soon.
