The Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Drinking Game

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver drinking game! Time to get the drinks out!

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is a truly brilliant show. If you haven’t seen it you should get on it, and this drinking game is your perfect excuse. The show is basically British comedian John Oliver (Professor Ian Duncan from Community!) recapping the news from the week, sprinkling in some random nonsense, and usually ending with one in depth look at some topic you probably never thought about before. Guaranteed you will have a laugh and even be able to hold a semi-intellectual conversation at the bar later.

Last Week Tonight airs Sunday nights on HBO 11:00 PM ET/PT.

If you don’t have cable you can watch HBO on Amazon through this link and you even get 7 days free trial.
