Dear John: 5 Times John Oliver Has Stolen Our Hearts

by Maddie Shepherd · June 8, 2016

On Monday, the ever-lovable John Oliver made television history. With a charmingly awkward flourish, Oliver pressed an arbitrary red button as he forgave nearly $15 million in medical debt that he had previously bought. Now, this is the biggest TV giveaway ever, nearly doubling the worth of Oprah's oft-quoted "You get a car! You get a car!!" moment. And John couldn't have been more earnest and less mockable as he did it. The structure of his show, Last Week Tonight, allows him to rant for ~15 minutes on any topic he chooses. Which, in turn, allows us to admire him for his zeal and to actually really want to learn the news. Click through to see more moments when we simply couldn't get enough of this wickedly hilarious do-gooder.
