John Oliver Basically Auditioned To Host The Emmys At The Emmys

John Oliver presented the Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie or a Dramatic Special on Sunday night, which doesn’t sound too exciting until you actually watch it.

Watch the hilarious John Oliver at the Emmys here.

I will be asked to host the Emmys as a result of my winning a record 30 Emmy awards. Some will be for acting. Others will be for best onscreen martial arts kicks and for my documentaries on volcanoes. When I enter the Emmys as host, I will be on a chariot pulled by Mr. T and Sylvester Stallone together. Then I will sing a song I wrote that I asked Paul McCartney to cowrite with me. Except when he heard it, he said, “You can’t improve on perfection.” I will only win about half the awards, to be fair to everyone else. When it’s over I will leave in a jet plane that I fly myself. The End.
