#TBT Brian and John Oliver, 2007

Email a Friend
John Oliver guest hosts an episode of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

It's 'Throwback Thursday' and we're marking the 25th anniversary of the show this fall with a dip into the Brian Lehrer Show archives every week. This week, we go back to 2007 when John Oliver, now host of HBO's "Last Week Tonight", was on to discuss the Writers Strike. He was joined by Peter Gwinn, then writer for the Colbert Report, and Brian Stack, writer and performer with Conan O'Brien. They took calls from listeners supporting their cause and talked about what was at stake in the strike -- which ultimately lasted over 14 weeks from 2007 to 2008.
