After a flinging a few insults at my city (hey! August is one of our hot months!) and generally putting everyone in their place, John Oliver has a threat level orange meltdown about some “Iron Man” continuity errors in a recent news report. It puts every single one of you pedantic commenters to shame. The melt starts around the 3 minute mark, but the whole segment is gold.
And that’s why I’ll miss John Oliver, who guest hosts his last episode of “The Daily Show” tonight. He’s been amazing and as much as I love Jon Stewart, this Brit’s sharper humor, buttery accent and, well, blatant geekery has won me over completely. I was fond of John Oliver before the summer started, but now I’m head over heels in love. We’ll miss him.
