Adam Driver Confronts John Oliver: 'What the F--- Are You Doing?'

John Oliver admitted he spent 2020 “demanding that Adam Driver demolish me, crush my larynx, you unwieldy boulder” and Adam Driver finally got in on the joke on last night’s episode of Last Week Tonight on HBO.

“Listen to me, what the f*ck are you doing? This bit? This bit, this thing you’ve been doing that’s either sexual or violent,” Adam said to John in a FaceTime call. “This strange, strange bit that for some reason you’ve pulled me into. What is it? When you first started doing it, it was easy for me to shrug it off. But then it kept going on, and on, and on, and on. Stop talking. Do you realize, over this past year, what you’ve asked me to do to you?”

Adam continued, “You realize we’re strangers, right? I don’t know you. And now, random people on the internet stan us. I’m sick of people stopping me on the street and asking me if I’m going to punch a hole in you like a Marriage Story wall. And you know what? You should be ashamed of yourself, because you know this was inappropriate.” Watch the clip!

Meanwhile, find out why Adam was trending on Twitter a few months ago when people didn’t have the correct facts.

John Oliver 'Nearly Burst Into Tears' After Voting for First Time in America

Voting was a very emotional experience for John Oliver.

While chatting with Stephen Colbert, the 43-year-old Last Week Tonight host said he “nearly burst into tears” after voting for the first time as an American citizen.

“It was amazing … as an immigrant who got his U.S. citizenship in December of last year, I was waiting for that to feel real,” John said of voting. “You worry about your immigration status all the time. And even getting your passport doesn’t feel real because you haven’t tested it against a system.”

Then when he got to cast his vote for the first time, he was finally able to feel all the emotions.

“Standing in line (to vote) … I didn’t feel it. Giving my name and getting the ballot, I didn’t feel it. Scanning it into the machine and the machine saying ‘your vote has been counted,’ — I nearly burst into tears,” John continued. “That is the truth. My eyes got misty, and I thought, ‘I don’t know if I can cry in a voting station.’”

John was born in the United Kingdom, but became an American citizen back in December 2019.

Find out who also recently revealed that the 2020 Election is the first time they’ll be voting.

Here's Why A Connecticut Town Renamed Their Sewer Plant In Honor of John Oliver

The town of Danbury, Connecticut has responded to John Oliver‘s dig on their town in a very savage way.

Just last week on his talk show, the 43-year-old host was pointing out how jury selection is still very rigged in the United States and showcased two racially diverse towns in Connecticut to prove his point.

In the segment, John shared that he knew “exactly three things about Danbury. USA Today ranked it the second-best city to live in in 2015, it was once the center of the American hat industry and if you’re from there, you have a standing invite to come get a thrashing from John Oliver — children included — (expletive) you.”

After the segment aired, the Mayor of Danbury, Mark Boughton, took his last sentence to heart and actually renamed the town’s sewage plant in honor of John.

“We are going to rename it the John Oliver Memorial Sewer Plant,” he said. “Why? Because it’s full of crap just like you, John.”
