Nerdist Podcast #69: JOHN OLIVER

Recorded in front of a live audience at SxSW on 3.14 (that’s right, PI DAY)! John Oliver, as expected, CRUSHED. We spoke of the Queen, British comics you should know, the daily Daily Show routine, and of course, the C word. This show was fun to the funth power!!!

    I could listen to this Number over and over, but that wouldn’t serve me very well.

    Great podcast, guys!
    Thanks for capturing and sharing this great moment in comedy history.

    BTW, I LOVE the Paul and Storm shoutout!

    omg I *heart* this episode. I listened to it at work while thudding through some boring graphs in Excel and it made work *awesome*. I sit in a really quite small room of analysts and I had to hold my mouth and nose from all out laughing during the reenactment of the Queen and R.Kelly. Literally laugh out loud funny. And Matt Mira just gets funnier every week.

  4. Grover says:

    Really great episode. I was devastated by how little The Bugle talk there was though. Seriously, The Bugle is an amazing podcast that every single one of you should subscribe to immediately.

    Also, Esther’s Follies seems to be a hell of a venue. Next time I’m in Austin….

    I could listen to this episode over and over again… definitely my favorite (and I have listened to every single one and have seen three in person.)

  6. Zachk Donovan says:

    I believe I have listened to this podcast 5 times. Today. I just love the sound of this mans voice.
