Oliver is the son of educators Jim and Carole, both of whom came from Liverpool. He graduated from Christ’s College at the University of Cambridge in 1998. After finishing school, he started doing stand-up, performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe as part of “The Comedy Zone” back in 2001. Four years later, Oliver and fellow comedian Andy Zaltzman started the radio show “The Political Animal”, from which Oliver began to gain popularity. He then toured around the city, doing stand-up in clubs and later on to bigger venues. He became a guest panelist in the satirical panel show “Mock the Week” from 2005 to 2006. Oliver then had a stand-up show called “John Oliver: Terrifying Times which was aired on Comedy Central in 2008 and eventually sold in DVDs. In 2010, he hosted “John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show” which lasted four seasons.

In 2006, with the help of Ricky Gervais, the 38-year old comedian became the British senior correspondent of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”, eventually moving to America and becoming a writer for the show from 2007-2013. He was nominated and won three times at the Emmys for “Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series” as well as the Writer’s Guild Awards for “Comedy/Variety – (Including Talk) Series”. In 2013, Oliver took over as the guest host of the show for eight weeks while Stewart directed the movie “Rosewater”. Three months later, Oliver was finally given his own late-night show “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” which premiered on Home Box Office (HBO) in 2014. It was a satirical show with no holds barred in discussing politics, news, and current events. The success of the show, which has earned him another Writer’s Guild Award, led to its renewal for two more seasons in 2015, each with 35 episodes. His net worth is still growing.

In addition to his hosting gigs, Oliver co-hosted a weekly podcast called “The Bugle” with Andy Zaltzman from 2007 to 2015. He also became a recurring character on the US TV series “Community”, as psychology professor Dr. Ian Duncan. However, he declined the opportunity to become a regular cast as he had already committed to “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”. He lent his voice on shows “Gravity Falls”, “Rick and Morty”, “Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja”, and “The Simpsons” as well as appearing on shows “People Like Us”, “My Hero”, and “Green Wing”. He also landed movie roles in “The Love Guru”, and “The Smurfs” film series as the voice of Vanity Smurf.

In 2011, Oliver married Kate Norley, an Iraq War veteran whom he met at the 2008 Republican National Convention. They welcomed a son named Hudson in 2015. They currently live in New York.

#Quote
1[on Boris Johnson] A man with such horrifically poor judgment, he wasn't just Britain's most ardent advocate for pulling out of the EU, he may be its strongest argument for pulling out in general.
2Why do neo-Nazis always like metal? Is there anyone into both anti-Zionist conspiracy theories and smooth jazz?
3[on his desire to produce more in-depth analysis of news events] You see something that's a little bit weird, you start looking into it, and then three days in we have the same meeting which is basically going, 'Holy shit! This is a lot worse than we thought it was going to be'. The problem is that the loudest journalism in America is generally saying the least.
4[on newly-installed and embattled General Motors CEO, Mary Barra] She hasn't just broken the glass ceiling, she's been ejected through the glass windshield.
5[on preparing for his new show 'Last Week Tonight'] We're trying to build the machine that will one day make fun of stories that haven't happened yet. It's most important task is to take something really depressing in one end and spit out jokes on the other, in about a hundred different ways.
6Australia turns out to be a sensational place, albeit one of the most comfortably racist places I've ever been in. They've really settled into their intolerance like an old resentful slipper. You can say what you like about Australian racism, it is undeniably specific. I had a couple of Australians - more than one - complain to me about all the Lebbos in the country, referring apparently to the Lebanese. Who the fuck is annoyed by Lebanese people? In a way you have to admire the attention to detail. Not just all those Arabs, but the Lebanese.
7Australia is a sensational place and it really begs the question: why the f-- did we make that our penal colony when its nicer than where we live? We should have said to criminals at the time 'you're all staying here, we're off to go live in paradise'.
8[on what he's learned from Jon Stewart] In terms of how he's able to oversee the writing and the production of what the script needs every day, that has been interesting. What he's always told us is you want to make sure that the spine of the argument is in shape. You can write jokes at any point of the day. Jokes are not that hard to write, or they shouldn't be when it is literally your job. It's harder to shift the point of view of a headline later in the day. That's the kind of thing you need to keep an eye on early. You'd think you'd come in early in the day and go, "What jokes should we tell?" And that's not always the case.
9[on taking over The Daily Show (1996) for Jon Stewart] I'll do anything for him, whether it's hosting this show or disposing of a body. I guess I was just happy it was the first of those two choices, and I wasn't taking a trip to the East River under the cover of darkness. On the phone with him, I was saying, I'll do it. It was only upon hanging up that my legs started to buckle. I thought, What have I just agreed to? But it was long enough away that it didn't really seem real.
10Armando Iannucci is one of my heroes. As I was growing up, he was probably the most influential comic voice that I had. The only way I may be able to say thank you is to invite him on a television show, where we're both one step removed from having to directly deal with each other on a human level. Hillary Kun, the guest booker [on The Daily Show (1996)] and I have been talking about who might be interesting to have come on and trying to get a balance of people. And trying to get the Queen.
#Fact
1Has one son, Hudson.
2On his father's side, John is the great-great-grandson of The Rev. William Boyd Carpenter (1841-1918), who was a court chaplain to Queen Victoria and the Bishop of Ripon. He was from a prominent family that produced many Church of England clergy.
3He has English and Irish ancestry. On his father's side, he is the grandson of Osborne George Oliver, an electricity board official, and Charlotte Hester Girdlestone, a religious education adviser.
4His uncle (father's brother) was composer Stephen Oliver.
5Oliver met his wife, Kate Norley, when he was covering the 2008 Republican Convention for The Daily Show (1996). Norley, an Army veteran who served as a medic in the Iraq War, was there with a group called Vets for Freedom.
6Writer and star of Radio 4's "The Department" alongside Chris Addison and Andy Zaltzman.
7Often writes and performs with friend Andy Zaltzman.
