John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show

The British are coming — well one of them is, at least. The Daily Show correspondent returns to host some of the best comedians around — including Reggie Watts, Pete Holmes, Rory Scovel, Paul F. Tompkins and more. Watch and you might just get to hear John say “Aluminum” in that goofy way that they do.

There probably has never been a show with such a self-explanatory title as John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show. It is hosted by John Oliver, recorded in New York and features stand-up comedy. Oliver is best known from his work as a correspondent and temporary host on The Daily Show. In his New York Stand-Up Show, he performs his own stand-up material and also gives established and up-and-coming comedy talents a chance to shine.

In the premiere episode, Oliver ditches the suit to discuss his surprising affection for America, the upside-down Australians and the effects of voting under the influence. The episode also features sets from Maria Bamford, Nick Kroll and Greg Fitzsimmons, before closing with a super-sized stand-up set from Eugene Mirman.

Oliver is a correspondent and an Emmy® Award-winning writer on the “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” which he joined in 2006. He recently appeared in three episodes of NBC’s “Community” and his first COMEDY CENTRAL stand-up special, “John Oliver: Terrifying Times,” premiered in April 2008. Along with Andy Zaltzman, Oliver also writes and stars in a weekly podcast, “The Bugle: Audio Newspaper for a Visual World.” Oliver has been nominated for both Emmy® and Writers Guild Awards and won the Breakout Award for his stand-up comedy performances at the Aspen Comedy Festival in 2007.
