John Oliver is quickly becoming my favorite pop culture/current events commentator. Also, he was one of the best things in a better than expected final season of Community.
In this clip, from his new HBO series “Last Week Tonight”, he interviews the very famous Stephen Hawking. Him of A Brief History Of Time. One of the greatest thinkers, probably ever.
Oliver doesn’t back off and asks the really hard questions, such as: “Are you saying that Robots are going to destroy humanity?” and “What number am I thinking?”
Hawking is game and gives as good as he takes.
Catch “Last Week Tonight” every Sunday evening on HBO.
