'The Daily Show:' John Oliver Cries As He Bids Farewell to Jon Stewart on Last Episode [VIDEO]
John Oliver, who is going on to host his own HBO comedy show, bid farewell to Jon Stewart on his last episode of The Daily Show Dec. 19.
The clip began with Stewart asking Oliver, who plays the senior royal correspondent, for his views on Prince William and Kate Middleton's newborn child.
"There's not just a story, there is a travesty here, where is the sex, where is the magic, where is the intrigue, where is the sex?" Oliver vehemently stated. "All we're getting here is a baby-talking prince and nut-obsessed pensioner, good luck selling a collectable plate with either one of those things on it."
After discussing the bit about the Royal Family, Stewart told his audience that Oliver had been on the show for about seven and a half years, and this was his last episode before he moved to HBO.
"There is only one British royal I care about tonight and his name is Prince John Oliver," Stewart said.
They went on to share a retrospective of some of Oliver's best moments on the show, with Stewart celebrating his range as a performer and lauding him for bringing a particular brand of dry British humor to the American show.
Oliver seemed very overwhelmed, and both he and Stewart seemed to be crying by the end of the show.
Oliver will start hosting his as of yet untitled show on HBO when it debuts in 2014. Airing on Sunday nights, the comedy will borrow the same concepts of The Daily Show and Real Time with Bill Maher, by taking a satirical look at the week in news, politics and current events.
