Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove …
Last Week Tonight
Over the weekend, John Oliver begged big international brands and sponsors like Coca-Cola, McDonalds, and Visa to force Sepp Blatter to resign. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert announced the band leader, New Orleans legend Jon Batiste. Plus, Jen Kirkman got raw on life and face-eating with Conan, Seth Meyers had some good Jeb Bush jokes and talked well with Alan Cumming, and lots more.
Last night on late night, John Oliver took America to task for being the only other country, auspiciously paired with Papua New Guinea, to not have any federal mandated paid family leave for the birth of a child. May 10 was Mother’s Day in the US this year, and Last Week Tonight made the astute move of exposing a pretty horrible injustice.
