John Oliver Leaves Jon Stewart for Own Show On HBO

As a fan of Jon Stewart's Daily show you know that Daily Show correspondent John Oliver was hosting the show during last summer. Jon Stewart was out directing his first movie. The performance of John Oliver was excellent and now it pays off big time for the comedian. What I still remember most is John Oliver's hilarious dance move when Carlos Danger came up. Watch a compilation of that below. HBO announced that John Oliver gets his own weekly satire show starting next year.

The new John Oliver Show will like the Daily Show take a satirical look at news, current events and politics. It is supposed to get a Sunday evening slot. HBO specifically said that they wanted John Oliver because of his performance sitting in for Jon Stewart. 

HBO has already a satire news show hosted by the great Bill Maher. I am totally looking forward to the new John Oliver Show.
