You know him best from Last Week Tonight (or maybe as Zazu from the 2019 Lion King), but John Oliver is much more than a talk show host (or hornbill)! Join him for an evening of comical discussions regarding the latest political events, current world affairs, and breaking news in pop culture. You’ll regret it if you miss John Oliver LIVE at the Paramount Theatre, Seattle, on Saturday, September 9th, 2023! Don’t make that mistake - buy your tickets today!

It's not often you'll see a blue moon, a four-leaf clover, or a particular pop culture pundit announcing a highly anticipated comedy tour. No, we're not pulling your leg. John Oliver really is heading to the Paramount Theatre this coming September 9, 2023!

"John Oliver is even funnier in person than on The Daily Show. There's more breadth to his material when he's on his own, although political and social commentary remains a core theme. I love his deadpan sarcastic, insightful views that poke fun at everyone, including us, the audience. His timing and delivery are impeccable."

Long before he became a household name, John Oliver was already making a scene (the good kind) as a stand-up comedian. Now, over 20 years since his debut, the critically acclaimed producer/host of HBO's late-night talk show, Last Week Tonight, launches a countrywide tour trailing to the far end of September.

Esteemed talk show personality. Reasonably funny comedian. Unwilling figurehead to Reddit policy protests. Is there ANYTHING this man can't do!?! Find out from John Oliver himself as he discusses current political affairs, pop culture developments, and general facts about life, all at the mercy of his comedic license. With his whip-smart commentary and feats of satirical genius, crowds will find themselves educated in the most hysterical way possible.

During his tenure at The Daily Show, John Oliver received 3 Primetime Emmy Awards for his contributions as a writer. After landing his iconic hosting spot, he collected 14 Emmy Awards, 2 Peabody Awards, and a name drop by Time magazine in their annual list of the world's 100 most influential people, citing him as a "comedic agent of change...powerful because he isn't afraid to tackle important issues thoughtfully, without fear or apology."

As for our venue, take a cab to downtown Seattle, Washington, and beeline to the historic Paramount Theatre. Immediately, you'll be greeted by its stunning art-deco interiors and stage, brilliantly contrasting the modern sensibilities of the show.
