A totally biased guide to John Oliver's greatest moments: The time he used the “human microphone” at an Occupy rally to explain how stupid the human microphone looks (everyone shouts whatever the leader just said). When he suggested (after the acquittal of George Zimmerman) that the iconic image of Mickey Mouse waving from Disney World in Florida was really Mickey saying, “Please, someone get me the f— out of here.” And, of course, there are the many, many ways he has called out Fox News, CNN and the Tea Party. All of this comes from watching his work on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, but Oliver has a lot of jokes up his sleeve. Tonight, it's stand-up comedy, but he's also had his own special on Comedy Central, and is currently writing and starring in the weekly podcast The Bugle: Audio Newspaper for a Visual World.
