John Oliver may have left The Daily Show, but he hasn’t really strayed very far at all

A few weeks ago, I pointed out that Jon Stewart and his Comedy Central offspring Stephen Colbert made similar and obvious jokes about Barack Obama’s decision to send 300 military advisers to Iraq (and that they both got the story substantively wrong).

Meanwhile, I’m a little behind on my viewing of John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight (I’ve been taking advantage of Stewart and Colbert’s joint two-week Fourth of July slash midsummer vacation to remedy that) so I only recently noticed that John Oliver — after seven years with The Daily Show — couldn’t help himself from pointing out the obvious either:

John Oliver 300

At first I was sad Colbert would no longer be delivering his nightly Report, but I have slowly come around to the opinion that three might be too many.
