Straight from John Oliver’s website we learn that on his hiatus from LAST WEEK TONIGHT WITH JOHN OLIVER we will be going on a 15-stop stand-up tour. As of this posting LAST WEEK TONIGHT has aired fifteen of its twenty-four episode run. That means the show’s Season One will end in mid-October and that gives him enough time to squeeze in a few dates around the country before the end of the year.
John Oliver is no stranger to the stand-up gig as that was what he was doing in the UK before moving to the States in 2006. Of course, we know that he had a healthy stint on The Daily Show and a few Comedy Central specials under his belt before taking on his own show and he has even done some sitcom and voice-over work, but like most comedians we likes to get back to his roots and hit the stand-up stage.
If you are interested in catching him on tour later this year here are the dates:
University of Buffalo, Buffalo, NY on 11.18.14
Temple Hoyne Buell Theatre, Denver, CO on 11.19.14
The Grove, Anaheim, CA on 11.20.14

There doesn’t seem to be a theme or title to the tour though we can be sure it will be filled with the topical humor that he dishes out every Sunday at 11:00pm. He might also give the traditional comedic staples like sex and relationships a look as well. We don’t know for sure. Tickets can be obtained now via Live Nation if you want to see him in a city near you. And if you do go see him and want to review it for HBOWatch just drop as a line and we will look at it!
