Beloved British Comedian John Oliver Set to Visit State Theatre


John Oliver - Historic State Theater - 2013

John Oliver is one of those hilarious people who has both funny material and perfect delivery. The British comedian is most well-known for his contributions to The Daily Show on Comedy Central — this summer Oliver took over Jon Stewart’s desk for eight weeks while the regular host was filming a movie. Oliver’s work filling in for Stewart was highly regarded by many (including myself) and it’s only a matter of time before Oliver becomes much more of a household name. This Saturday, Oliver is set to visit the Historic State Theatre. Don’t miss your opportunity to see his standup in person.

Anyone who is a fan of standup comedy should be a huge fan of Oliver visiting Minnesota. He is one of the best out there, mixing his comedic wit with real issues facing society. His intelligence never takes away from his jokes, but only enhances them. This Saturday at 8 pm is your chance to see John Oliver on stage in his element.
