The US wealth gap – a topic that many late night talk show hosts have avoided by any means. That is, of course, unless that late night host is John Oliver.
John Oliver has struck gold when it comes to his hit HBO late night talk show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. This is primarily because he is able to talk about issues that many other hosts wouldn’t even think about addressing – especially since he is able to do so in a way that will make you laugh and make you think at the same time. He has nailed Dr. Oz to the wall AND went head to head against the likes of Bill Nye the Science Guy. This time around, John Oliver targeted the wealth gap problem that exists within the United States of America and how it can affect the future of US citizens sooner than they think. Even if the US wealth gap is not necessarily a topic that you have considered to be funny or even worth discussing in the past, chances are that John Oliver will change your mind about that almost immediately after you begin watching this video which has already been seen over 1.1 million times in less than three days.
