9 Marvelous John Oliver Gifts For Your 'Last Week Tonight'-Obsessed Friends (As Well As Yourself)
The holiday season is in full swing, and if you're looking for presents for anyone who is a little (or a lot) obsessed with Last Week Tonight and its beautiful unicorn host John Oliver, this is the gift guide for you. Since his show started on HBO last year, John Oliver has climbed the ranks as one of television’s funniest and most talented commentators. From his founding of the Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption Church to the awesome way he told off Donald Trump, Oliver is a bit of a 2015 hero, and totally worthy of holiday gifts in his honor.
Not mentioned on this list are an earlier premiere date for Season 3, and tickets to a taping. Last Week Tonight returns for Season 3 on Feb. 14, and although pushing up the premiere date would be the best holiday gift a fan could get, it’s probably not going to happen. Tickets are notoriously hard to get ahold of, even if you live in the New York area (trust me, I've tried). But hopefully, the show will last for many years to come and all you dedicated fans will be able to sit in the audience for a show. In the meantime, these assorted gifts will keep you in comfort until Oliver once again graces screens across the world with his humor and social critique.

Oliver isn't exactly eligible for the presidency, but I have no doubt that this ticket would win the general election. You can buy the shirt on Amazon and keep wishing for a President John Oliver.
Oliver's first stand-up special is a hidden gem and a great throwback to 2008.
