Watch John Oliver's New York Stand-up Show

Funny on "The Daily Show" and as fill-in for host Jon Stewart when he was taking a hiatus, John Oliver is coming into his own these days. Part of the expanded comic presence comes in the form of "John Oliver's Stand-Up New York Show." Oliver has been hosting the comic free-for-all since January 2010 and it just keeps getting funnier.

Oliver delivers his politically aware comic routine while also presenting some of the best New York comics to a nationwide audience on Comedy Central. The show appears in the same time slot as "The Daily Show" on Fridays. Some of the top emerging New York comics to appear includes Reggie Watts, Paul Tomkins, Pete Holmes and Rory Scovel. Other top comics who have appeared and now are regulars on TV include Deon Cole, Anthony Jeselnik, Nick Kroll and Mary Lynn Rajskub

British charm and political edginess are hallmarks of Oliver and the popular show. The half-hour show features six new episodes in a season generally with three, or four, comics aside from Oliver.
