John Oliver and Trevor Noah Talk Late Night, Political Comedy, and Bad ‘Last Week Tonight’ Headlines

Here’s a clip from John Oliver’s appearance on last night’s Daily Show, where he chats with Trevor Noah about comedy’s role in today’s political climate, why he hates most of the headlines about his Last Week Tonight segments, and how he feels about doing a weekly show instead of a daily one like Noah. “There’s a great mental clarity to having a show to do the next day, because then you don’t feel too bad about the show you’ve just done. …Not that this was terrible! I’m just saying, you’ll be fine tomorrow. You can take another swing, that’s all I’m saying,” Oliver says. “Did you just eviscerate me?!” Noah replies. “I feel like you just eviscerated me.”
