Warning: this video contents plenty of cussing!!! John Oliver says what I am thinking.
Ah, the advantages of premium cable to express immense anger and frustration. Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight,” featured John Oliver’s profanity-laced tirade that George Carlin would be proud of. From SNL’s solidarity, to Colbert’s shaky voice of concern, to even Bill Maher’s anger, comedians have spent the weekend trying to help the world come to grips with yet another tragedy. Oliver went another route, and instead completely lost his shit.
“Sadly, we must begin with a few words about France which, on Friday, suffered the deadliest attack on its soil since World War II,” said Oliver at the top of the show. “Look, it’s hardly been 48 hours and much is still unknown, but there are a few things we can say for certain. And this is when it actually helps to be on HBO, where those things can be said without restraint, because after the many necessary and appropriate moments of silence, I’d like to offer you a moment of premium cable profanity.”
