Movie Reviews

Hilarious comedy special
Patrick Arnold | 08/07/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

""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!"
Hysterical historical snapshot
K. Wagner | CO, USA | 09/18/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."

"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."
