John Oliver Meets with the Dalai Lama To Have a Definitive Interview

John Oliver doesn’t have big guest interviews every week (or even some weeks) on Last Week Tonight. However, the interview with the Dalai Lama from last night’s episode shows how good an interviewer Oliver can be while balancing his angles of comedy and geo-socio-political awareness.

While this is on a comedy show, we wouldn’t be surprise if this interview at the latter half of this deep dive segment becomes one of the more highly referenced clips of the Dalai Lama in covering the tension between the Chinese government and Tibet.
