Fresh off of his eight week high-profile gig as the host of "The Daily Show," the red-hot John Oliver makes his debut at the Knight Theater.

John Oliver joined “The Daily Show” (and The Best F#@king News Team Ever) in 2006 and since arriving has done everything from interviewing UN Ambassadors to covering the World Cup in South Africa to breaking his nose fighting for the Confederate army.

As a writer Oliver has won Emmy® and Writers Guild Awards and he won the Breakout Award at the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. He performs stand-up around the US and his one-hour special “Terrifying Times” debuted in April 2008. His stand-up series, “John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show” premiered on COMEDY CENTRAL in January 2010 with the fourth season slated to air in late summer. Along with Andy Zaltzman, Oliver also writes and stars in a weekly podcast, “The Bugle: Audio Newspaper for a Visual World.”
