Last night we bid adieu to John Oliver as host of The Daily Show. Like saying goodbye to a much loved substitute teacher, the parting was bittersweet; we can’t deny our excitement at seeing our old leader return from paternity leave (a movie is kind of a baby when you think about it), but, well, shucks…we will sure miss our equally cool and much more British replacement.
To mark the end of Wet Hot Oliver Summer, the interim host gave us “One Crazy Summary” including the reveal of Anthony Weiner’s Internet alias, and Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law. And as a final send-off, current correspondents, Samantha Bee and Jessica Williams as well as ex-correspondents Wyatt Cynac and Rob Riggle roasted Oliver, laying on Titanic metaphors, profanity ridden nicknames, and general “you destroyed The Daily Show in three months” insults. Basically, their way of saying “I love you.” Check out the video below. You will not be disappointed.
