John Oliver: "Gaddafi is one of the most eccentric despots in the Middle East. This leather-faced, Ukrainian nurse-loving lunatic has been in power since 1969."
Then Oliver compares both their bosses as dictators: "We both work for charismatic dictatorial figures who don't like to leave their rooms unless it's to go on to TV. They are both addicted to the adulation of crowds. They both look really weird up close. They both like Jewish jokes - though probably for different reasons..."
Oliver frames the interview like a commiseration fest over bad bosses. Not to be missed is Oliver's marketing campaign to rename Libya to some seriously outrageous and funny ones. He never did manage to sell the ambassador on any of it. Get a look and a laugh for your work week:
