Last Week Tonight + Stephen Hawking

I am most familiar with John Oliver as Professor Ian Duncan from *sniff* Community *wipes away tear*. Since then John Oliver has started a new talk show on HBO examining American news from the week that was, fittingly called Last Week Tonight. Think The Newsroom but more entertaining and less sexist.

Notably John covers some sensitive topics such as Net Neutrality and the Death Penalty, and manages to bring an intelligent outsiders voice to the American people.

Tonight’s One Cool Thing is John Oliver’s interview of Stephen Hawking, poking fun at both Oliver and Hawking, and showing that not only is Hawking ‘the smartest man on the planet’ he also has a wicked sense of humour.
