VIDEO: John Oliver Sells Liverpool FC to the US

Originally from Birmingham in England, political comedy writer John Oliver won an Emmy for his work on America’s pioneering series “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart”.

But it wasn’t until he guest-hosted that show in the summer of 2013 that HBO took notice of his “singular perspective and distinct voice.” Thanks to that memorable gig, Oliver was offered his own show. Below watch him comment on countries of the world (Ireland in there around 02.20) but first a few days ago Oliver make an impassionate pleas for Americans to support his beloved soccer team Liverpool who are currently playing matches in America.

Is there an ‘Irish’ John Oliver out there? Do you think you have what it takes and happy for us to invest in a production pilot? 

If so we’d love to hear from you – send a short video to share@grintageireland.com
