WARNING: This stand-up performance will be delivered with a british accent, so be prepared for the words to come with more authority than you're used to. With a mixture of political sound bites, still photos and schmaltzy 80's power ballads, comedian John

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious comedy special August 7, 2008
Format:DVD
"This concert will be coming to you in a British accent. Be prepared for words to have a little more authority than usual."

John Oliver is best known for his mock news reporting on The Daily Show with John Stewart. John Oliver follows in the footsteps of Stephen Colbert and Steve Carrell and easily lives up to expectations. Oliver's special focuses largely on politics, newscasting, and some classic commentary on the differences between Britons and Americans (Oliver was born in Britain and educated at Cambridge). His ability to take the "outsiders" perspective on American life while fully embracing it is unique. I was thrilled to see him get his own 1-hour comedy special on Comedy Central (reproduced here uncensored and with additional features). Highly recommended for fans of the Daily Show and Colbert Report!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hysterical historical snapshot September 18, 2008
Format:DVD
John Oliver has a hysterical perspective on the world's current position in history. My wife is a high school history teacher and she wants to try to show segments of this to her class because they are so funny, yet so true to historical fact. I watched the show when it originally aired on Comedy Central and have watched the DVD twice, and still laugh at it. John Oliver is young and I hope he has a great future in comedy so that we see much more of him. This DVD should be a great start on that path.

5.0 out of 5 stars You get a lot for ten bucks. November 6, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Others have commented on John himself and on the main feature of the DVD, so I thought I'd comment on the overall package. The main show's a bit over 50 minutes long, but John manages to pad the disc out to somewhere around 2 hours of content when you include all the other clips included. Heck, the menu screen's video loop is over 10 minutes long just by itself. Other bonus materials include four clips from the Daily Show, another shorter stand-up routine (though admittedly, a few jokes are repeated), some banter with the incredible Andy Zaltzman, and a few other miscellaneous fourth-wall-breaking monologues.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Laughed so hard I snorted!! January 28, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A funny take on America and Americans by British comic John Oliver. He's a writer and "correspondent" on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. It's something that I can watch over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPER FUNNY November 25, 2008
Format:DVD
I saw bits and pieces of this on Comedy Central and decided I had to buy it. I bought it and what do you know it is hilarious. I can't wait until John Oliver gets his own show.
