Video: John Oliver Brought to Tears During Emotional Sendoff on 'Daily Show with Jon Stewart'


The British comedian thinks he's going to do a bit about British phone tapping scandal when Stewart interrupts him to bid a farewell to the show's longtime correspondent.

Jon Stewart bid farewell to John Oliver during the latter's last appearance on "The Daily Show" Thursday night, December 19. The British comedian is leaving the Comedy Central show to host his own show on HBO and he was caught off guard when his senior presented him with a "greatest hits" tribute.

Oliver was led into believing that he was going to do a comedy bit on British phone tapping scandal, but it turned out to be Stewart's trick to get Oliver at the desk. After Stewart interrupted Oliver, the "Daily Show" longtime correspondent asked, "Are we not doing the bit?"

Stewart, instead, introduced a montage of clips featuring Oliver in various hilarious skits. At the end of the segment, Oliver was weeping but Stewart knew how to lighten the mood, cueing up Mystikal's "Danger" for an awkward dance.

Oliver joined "Daily Show" as Senior British Correspondent in 2006. His new topical weekly comedy series will air Sunday nights on HBO beginning in 2014.
