John Cornelius Oliver is Daily Show Correspondent, or since he is British, Courrespondouent. He is awesome (He won some award yeah- read a book), and that is all you need to know. Don't bother reading anything else. He is trying to follow in the footsteps of Stephen Colbert, and is going completely the right tway. He is the only "Daily Show" correspondent to spell his first name right, unlike a certain Jewish person on The Daily Show. Oliver bears a striking resemblance to noted mega-trillionaire media mogul John Jay Viacom Jr. III.
John Oliver is now married to Florence Nightingale.
