John Oliver Pokes Fun at Brexit and U.K. Election Chaos

'Last Week Tonight' host has a brilliant take on his home country's general election.


As a Birmingham native, late night host John Oliver was uniquely equipped to take on the United Kingdom’s general election, in which Prime Minister Theresa May faced an international embarrassment after her party lost its parliament majority during last week’s snap election.

Pulling from his British roots, Oliver describes how this election adds to the difficulty and complexity of the upcoming Brexit negotiations, while also proposing a hilarious solution: A real candidate, who won 249 votes, named Lord Buckethead. Take a look.
