John Oliver bid farewell to The Daily Show on Thursday.
The Daily Show’s British correspondent is leaving the programme to host a weekly news series on HBO.
Oliver’s Daily Show departure was an emotional one when he was surprised by Jon Stewart with a send-off. He thought he was going to be doing a segment on British tabloids spying on the Royals but of course this was a setup for his surprise farewell.
John asked “Are we not doing the bit?” with Stewart replying “No of course we’re not doing the bit” and he clearly was caught off-guard.
A montage of John Oliver’s memorable moments on The Daily Show followed which brought him to tears by the end, but they ended on a lighter mood with a final Carlos Danger dance.
