  • ♪ >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY,

  • WE'RE BACK WITH JOHN OLIVER.

  • LET'S TALK ABOUT THE LOCKDOWN OVER IN ENGLAND.

  • EUROPE HAD A ROUGH GO OFT IT IN THE SPRING AND EARLY SUMMER.

  • THERE WERE LOCKDOWNS ALL OVER THERE.

  • Y'ALL CAME OUT OF IT -- OR NOT Y'ALL BECAUSE Y'ALL IS US NOW --

  • BUT THE PEOPLE YOU USED TO BELONG TO OVER THERE, THEY CAME

  • OUT OF IT, HAD A PRETTY GOOD SUMMER, AND NOW A SERIOUS SURGE

  • OF CASES OVER THERE, AND ANOTHER LOCKDOWN.

  • BACK WHEN WE WERE IN LOCKDOWN AND Y'ALL WERE IN LOCKDOWN ORO

  • ENGLAND WAS IN LOCKDOWN, WE WERE KIND OF IN SIMILAR BOATS.

  • SINCE THEN, THIS MASSIVE ANTISCIENCE PUSH HAS HAPPENED IN

  • THE UNITED STATES.

  • DO THE PEOPLE BACK IN THE U.K.

  • PAY ATTENTION TO THE SCIENTISTS?

  • IS THERE RESISTANCE, I GUESS IS WHAT I'M SAYING?

  • >> I DON'T THINK THERE'S RESISTANCE TO SCIENCE.

  • I THINK THERE'S RESISTANCE TO HOW IT'S BEING HANDLED IN THE

  • U.K.

  • I THINK THERE IS FRUSTRATION THAT PEOPLE ARE BEING ASKED TO

  • DO SOMETHING VERY DIFFICULT BY PEOPLE THEY DO NOT TRUST, BUT I

  • DON'T THINK THAT EXTENDS INTO DOUBTING THE SCIENCE HERE.

  • AND AGAIN -- >> Stephen: THERE'S NOBODY --

  • LIKE BORIS JOHNSON NEVER SAYS SCIENTISTS DON'T KNOW?

  • >> I MEAN, IT'S -- LOOK, BORIS JOHNSON IS A FLAWED HUMAN BEING

  • WHENEVER HE OPENS HIS MOUTH, SO I DON'T THINK BORIS JOHNSON HAS

  • EARNED THE RIGHT TO AUTHORITY ON ANYTHING HE TALKS ABOUT, BUT

  • NOTHING IS AS BAD AS HERE.

  • I MEAN, THAT'S THE THING THAT'S HARD TO -- IT'S LIKE WITH THE

  • LINES FOR VOTING, THERE IS INTENSE FRUSTRATION AT HOW

  • THINGS -- THE GOVERNMENT IN THE U.K. HAS HANDLED THE

  • CORONAVIRUS, BUT THEY KNOW IT'S NOTHING LIKE WHAT'S HAPPENING

  • HERE.

  • THERE'S STILL, IN THE U.K., A SENSE OF, WELL, THERE MIGHT NEED

  • TO BE A COLLECTIVE EFFORT TO NOT OVERBURDEN THE N.H.S., WHICH

  • PEOPLE ARE VERY PROTECTIVE OF.

  • I WISH THAT WAS THE CASE HERE.

  • I WISH THERE WAS AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT WE MIGHT

  • BE ABOUT TO PUT HOSPITAL WORKERS THROUGH AGAIN.

  • >> Stephen: I'M NOT GOING TO WRAP BECAUSE I NEED TO TALK

  • ABOUT AN HONOR YOU RECENTLY RECEIVED THAT I'M VERY JEALOUS

  • OF AND I WILL TELL YOU WHY IN JUST A MOMENT.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: 2020 HAS BEEN A CRAPPY YEAR FOR YOU BECAUSE THE

  • DOWN OF DANBURY, CONNECTICUT, NAMED A SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT

  • AFTER YOU.

  • DO YOU HAVE ANY DUTIES, IF YOU PARDON THE EXPRESSION --

  • >> I DON'T PARDON IT.

  • COMEDICALLY, I DO NOT PARDON IT.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY.

  • THAT FELT AVOIDABLE.

  • >> Stephen: IT WAS NOT AVOIDABLE AT ALL.

  • IT CAUGHT ME BY SURPRISE AND THEN I HAD TO DEAL WITH IT.

  • YOU UNDERSTAND?

  • I'M AS MUCH AS A VICTIM AS YOU ARE AND I DO NOT APPRECIATE THE

  • HOSTILITY, FRANKLY, AND I'M HERE JUST TRYING TO CELEBRATE THE

  • FACT THAT YOU GOT A ( BLEEP ) FACTORY NAMED OUT OF YOU AND

  • YOU'RE -- AFTER YOU AND YOU'RE LIKE, NO DOODY JOKES ABOUT MY

  • ( BLEEP ) FACTORY.

  • >> IT'S SUCH A JOY BEING WITH SOMEONE AT THE SAME LEVEL OF

  • PUNCHINESS AS I AM RIGHT NOW.

  • I'M VERY GLAD I DON'T HAVE TO DO AN HOUR-PLUS LIVE SHOW TOMORROW.

  • >> Stephen: ( BLEEP ) YOU.

  • ( BLEEP ), ( BLEEP ), ( BLE YOU.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> FOUR YEARS AGO, IT WOULD BE,

  • GET ME ANOTHER MOTORBIKE, I'M GOING AGAIN.

  • >> Stephen: TOMORROW NIGHT IS MERELY EPISODE TWO OF A TWO-PART

  • SERIES!

  • TOMORROW WAS -- WE'RE JUST GOING TO START THE WHOLE THING WITH,

  • PREVIOUSLY ON AMERICAN DEMOCRACY, AND THEN JUST HAVE A,

  • NOW THE EXCITING CONCLUSION OF AMERICAN DEMOCRACY, TOMORROW

  • NIGHT.

  • ALL THE SAME GUESTS ARE COMING BACK.

  • LITERALLY, WE INVITED ALL THE SAME PEOPLE BACK FOR TOMORROW

  • NIGHT!

  • >> THE STRING QUARTET ON THE TITANIC ARE COMING BACK FOR AN

  • ENCORE!

  • >> Stephen: BUT HOLD ON, YOU'VE GOT A SEWAGE TREATMENT

  • PLANT NAMED AFTER YOU.

  • THAT'S NOTHING TO SNEEZE AT.

  • >> IT'S AMAZING.

  • YOU KNOW WHAT WAS GENUINELY INSPIRATIONAL ABOUT IT, ONE OF

  • OUR WRITERS, WHEN WE WERE DOING A DIFFICULT PIECE ABOUT JURY

  • SELECTION, HE WRITES A JOKE ABOUT DANBURY WITHOUT EVEN

  • THINKING ABOUT IT, JUST PICKED THE NAME OUT OF THE AIR, AND

  • TURNS OUT, RIGHT, YOU COME FROM DANBURY YOU BET NORTH MISS.

  • BECAUSE THEY STARTED COMING BACK AT US SAYING WE'RE GOING TO NAME

  • THIS SEWAGE PLAN.

  • THERE'S A WHOLE BACK AND FORTH.

  • THERE'S SOMETHING DIFFERENT ABOUT PARTICIPATING IN A JOKE

  • YOU CAN'T CONTROL, LIKE WITH OFFICIALS, AND -- I HAVE THE

  • OFFICIAL PAPERWORK HERE.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S FANTASTIC.

  • BUT LOOK AT THIS.

  • THEY SENT ME A TOILET.

  • >> Stephen: MY FAVORITE PART, IF YOU LOOK UP HERE, IT'S

  • MEMORIAL.

  • >> THAT'S LEGITIMATELY A GREAT IDEA.

  • IT'S THEIR IDEA.

  • I'M NOT DEAD YET.

  • >> Stephen: WHEN YOU DIE, THEY CAN ACTUALLY JUST DROP YOUR BODY

  • IN THERE WITH THE SEWAGE AND CYCLE YOU THROUGH AND GET THE

  • WATER OUT OF YOU LIKE YOU'RE ON DUNE.

  • "LAST WEEK TONIGHT" AIRS SUNDAYS ON H.B.O.

  • LOOK IT UP.

  • JOHN OLIVER.

  • WE'LL BE BACK WITH CHER, NOW THAT'S A GUEST!

  • >> THAT'S IT!
