After his recent visit to Australia (or Planet X) to film three segments on ‘the myth’ of gun control, John Oliver made some offhand remarks about Australia being “the most comfortably racist place I’ve ever been” that threatened to overshadow the brilliant work he’s doing for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, including the following: the first instalment of his rebuttal to the gun debate in which he conducts an interview with former Prime Minister John Winston Howard regarding “the failure” of his gun control “scheme,” one that plays off perfectly against his deftly-executed take down of the idiotic 2nd Amendment defending gun lobbyist Phillip van Cleave

So many Johns; so many crusty white dudes; so many brilliant eye brows.

The next two segments should air on The Comedy Channel later this week. “Whoop-de-fucking-do” sounds about right.
