An Emmy- and Writer's Guild Award-winning writer, John Oliver was previously a correspondent for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, joining the show in 2006. He first came to prominence as a cutting-edge political stand-up performer in the UK with a string of TV appearances and sold-out solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival. Oliver won the Breakout Award at the Aspen Comedy Festival in 2007 and went on to write and star in the Comedy Central stand-up special John Oliver: Terrifying Times, followed by the series John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show, which he has hosted for four seasons. With longtime collaborator Andy Zaltzman, Oliver co-writes and co-presents the popular weekly satirical podcast The Bugle, which currently receives more than 500,000 downloads a month.
