  20. randijane August 30, 2011 at 1:00 pm #

    John Oliver is one of the funniest comedians on the scene right now. His commentary on the world is fantastic! For instance, when recently discussing Hugh Grant’s involvement in exposing the News of the World phone hacking scandal: “That’s right,the guy who got car head from an L.A. road prostitute is now the moral compass of my nation!”

  21. Bobbie August 30, 2011 at 1:07 pm #

    My husband will be forever grateful if we get chosen for free tickets!

  46. Ben September 1, 2011 at 5:12 pm #

    We have a new baby… we don’t get a lot of sleep OR alone time. We spend a lot of time feeding the baby in bed while watching the Daily Show or Comedy Central Presents. We would LOVE to be able to get out for a date and see this comedian live!! It would be our first night away from baby… and Grandma said she would watch him :)
    Please oh please!!

  72. Angry Platypus September 2, 2011 at 3:53 pm #

    I had my appendix out two weeks ago, and I’ve just been medically cleared by my Surgeon to laugh without restraint. Tickets to see/hear/feel/grok John Oliver would assist in my renewed freedom.
