John Oliver Looks Back on His Edward Snowden Interview on ‘The Tonight Show’

Here’s a clip from John Oliver’s appearance on last night’s Tonight Show, where he and Jimmy Fallon talk about some of the most popular Last Week Tonight segments from last year including the tax-exempt church he created that received donations like $70K in singles and a four-foot wooden penis. Oliver also looked back on his trip to Russia to interview Edward Snowden, which he admits he and his crew did without asking HBO for permission first: “It felt like we were in trouble all the time,” he said. “All I was thinking was ‘Once the wheels of the plane take off, I think I’m safe,’ which is an infantile understanding of international diplomacy.” Watch another clip from the interview below:
