It’s official. John Oliver is The Daily Show’s most funny correspondent. I was medium-warm about John Oliver – he being a replacement for bygone correspondents (I can’t quit you Ed Helms and Rob Corddry) – but the jumpy Brit is growing on me. And, after a string of lame-o newcomers, Oliver is officially the best regular.
Which means it behooves you to see him live at Cobb’s Comedy Club, May 28-30, before he leaves Jon for greener pastures, movie deals, swimming pools, movie stars...
Get excited for UNWIGGED & UNPLUGGED, going down tomorrow at The Paramount Theater in Oakland. Christopher Guest, Michael McKean & Harry Shearer of This is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind and the excellent sleeper For Your Consideration will perform hits from the films' original soundtracks.
