Viral Video of the Day: John Oliver Reads Your YouTube Comments

‘Last Week Tonight’ host shares some of the ‘brillent’ jabs the Internet has thrown at him

Nothing has better demonstrated Jean-Paul Sartre’s famous quote, “Hell is other people,” than the comment section on almost any website. On a web exclusive Last Week Tonight clip, host John Oliver reads some of his favorite YouTube comments about himself and his show.

Oliver bares his soul as he highlights comments in which he is compared to a parrot and knocked for mocking an unremarkable soda. However, he’s also called “brillent” by a rare complimentary viewer, so he has that going for him.
