According to award-winning Daily Show correspondent John Oliver’s résumé, his hit BBC radio program with Andy Zaltzman, Political Animal, entertains Brits with satirical stand-up and sketches that, in the past, have included “firing themselves out of a water canon at a crowd of protestors, contracting bird flu, and getting into a gunfight with the Queen.” OK, so maybe the bird-flu thing isn’t true, but the rest sure is. Be a part of the comedic mayhem tonight when Oliver records a new episode of Political Animal for British radio at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. Oliver promises many special guests weighing in on American politics. Perhaps this time out, he’ll get into a gunfight with Cheney.
