      Without the audience... so weird. its like I'm not sure its comedy anymore, its just tragedy....

    2. alex david

      Instead of Giving a Hug. We can Greet each other in an Indian way Namaste🙏

    3. James Morley

      Y does it look like John Oliver is constantly wearing one of those cheesy disguise masks but without the moustache.

    4. pretendperfection

      Why do you hate Canadians John? Why must we wait two weeks for your shows


      Thank you for your consideration, Jodie

    6. Haley Futch

      Watching this without an audience is sooo strange...

    7. Jackie Hughes

      Without the laugh track and audience, un-smart people don't know when to laugh!!! 🤷🏽‍♀️😎🤔🤭🤭🤭Lol😉

      @<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="768">12:48</a> - That's just to preserve the limited supply of masks for health professionals and people who are actually sick. There are plenty of tutorials on SEsels on how to *make* *your* *own* *masks* - out of old t-shirts, cotton woven fabric, etc. The most recent recommendation is for 180-thread count cotton woven fabric, folded over so it's doubled, with elastic sewn into or tied into the edges of the mask. This is what Japan, South Korea, and many other nations (where the disease curve flattened out) have done. Best part about those fabric masks is you can wash them in hot water with soap and bleach - and use them again! [edit to add] Instructions for masks from Kaiser Permanente: More instructions for homemade fabric face masks - this recommends 180-thread count and suggests one layer cotton fabric and one layer cotton flannel fabric:

        @Charming nowhere to hide - Thanks! I've been reading up on how the N95 masks are constructed, and although I can never equal that at home, I might be able to make something slightly better than a medical-mask-style facecover. Here are the challenging requirements for an N95 mask: Another link on that subject:

      LMFAO !!! Thanx John.... I needed that !!!

    11. Lee Kendel

      I trust your news

    12. Dr. Jay

      I say we vote John Oliver to be the first President of The Internet.

    13. 01Scalpel

      Trump has the intelligence of a door handle, and I apologize for all the door handles

    14. Thibaut Hebinger

      “try your best to tune out and not pass on misinformation in the coming weeks from sources like, sadly, the president", this is haunting me, especially because it might be true in many countries. Many thanks for your courage

      Amazing Mr. John Oliver. Despite not having the delightful feedback from your fans, your delivery of speech (verbal and visual) is spectacular bar none. As always, not only did I learn, I also cracked up in my living room, under #lockdown20. #stopcovid19. #HBO. #JohnOliver. @JohnOliver.

    18. jws1948ja

      That's a nasty question? Not the brightest coin. . .

    19. MotaDhesi

      I don't know when I should laugh. Stupid corona virus ruined one more thing.

    20. Krinal Mehta

      Thank you for that tiktok video, made my day :)

      I sure hope people like the president don't abuse tiktok hamsters to spread their messages...

    26. Bruce Wayne

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1140">19:00</a> Okay i was about to ask a wonderful girl to go on a date with me. Then the public quarantine happens and now i don't know how i can do that over email rather than face to face and also if i will ever see her again.

      1. Michael Wood

        Take her for a walk through the park.

    27. evcotter08

      Anyone freaking out about Trump’s awful speeches should come over to CBC to watch Justin Trudeau’s ASMR-esque daily 11am press conference. Much more accurate and very soothing.

    28. Olivia Vetter

      It’s weird without the live audience noises, and yet kind of audibly cozy

    29. What's My name

      I heard part 3 is out but can't see it in Canada. Why? John did an awesome number on that Texas mayor or governor or whatever he was who said old folks should step up to die for economy.

    30. Dr Phil

      I hope this turkey neck turd gets covid19.

      Twice in 20 years here we had a single point of failure in the massive apparatus meant to keep the country secure. Its 9/11 all over again. US intelligence repeatedly warned Bush that Al Qaeda was poised to attack US. It was in his daily security briefing. Yet he ignored it. A massive overhaul of post 9/11 security apparatus let to creation of Department of Homeland Security and centralized 17 agencies under it. Yet it continued and to-date continues to have a fatal flow. A single point of failure at the very top. Allowing a President to ignore warnings. Now we have trillions in economic damage, countless deaths imminent and untold suffering. Why bother spending $750 billion in defense and another $300 billions on homeland security CIA, department of energy (nuclear weapons). Why build our 21st and 22nd aircraft carrier? Who is doing threat assessments that continue to be focused on fighting hot wars. I want my taxpayer money back. That money was wasted and didn't keep us secure.

      “That’s just nature baby.” 💀💀💀💀

    34. tish and mark backs

      love the liverpool bit (which wasn't a 'bit' per se)

    35. Alie joe

      I've been watching your show for a long ass time but I want you to know I prefer you as Ian Douglass

    36. Nasty Ameri

      American love freedom and should never sacrifice their freedom at all. AMERICAN GO OUT AND DONT STAY HOME.

      1. Charming nowhere to hide

        Salvadore Mazza or Salvatore Mazza, was a noted microbiologist who like many doctors wasn't heeded about how disease spread among poor people by the fascist Argentin

    37. claudewilks

      Mr. Oliver, I very much like your show and the way you analize public topics and so on. I never comment on anything online, it is just not my thing. This time I can not help myself. You, you had to say LFC is your favorite Football team! LPMQLP (search it in spanisch), I don't like you anymore, I love you now. Keep yourself sano and animado. We're going to need good people if this really goes sideways. Muchos saludos from Campo Pajoso, Bolivia, (the Center of the World ;-) ). Claus

    38. T_ miche_

      Oh the end of this episode hurt my heart😔


      God bless you john, thank you stay safe as well it honestly brought tears to my eyes seeing this

    40. Takeru Xs

      To get a better understanding about what is at stake here, not just in your own city and country but worldwide, and what you can do to slow down covid19 kindly watch the following youtube video If you find the video helpful to get a better understanding about how covid19 works and what you as a person can do about it, kindly share this video with your family and friends. Thank you.

    41. Faris Abuain

      The US has done a shit job of flattening the curve; over 280,000 cases (most in the world) and growing at a VERY fast rate in VERY little time. I’m no expert, but that seems like a recipe for disaster.

    42. Degenation

      Y’all voted for him hehe

    43. Michel Pelletier

      Everyone who needs care, can get it... Correction: Everyone who needs care and can afford it, can get it.

    44. Selene Ravenmoon

      I liked the episode but the end made me tear up.

    45. FrostyEmber

      He’s so cringe already it’s so much worse without the laugh track. Boomer humour.

    46. Nordikaventurier

      John, you are clearly the BEST there EVER was at doing this kind of thing. A lot were awesome ! Jon Stewart was the king there for a moment. Turns out if he was the king, you're the almighty god (and I'm an ATHEIST O.o). Thank you

    47. Razenoid15

      I have a bad habit of going out to wander in stores but to help stop myself i have ordered better parts for my gaming computer and a ps4 and a psvr just to keep myself and my family entertained at home to help prevent the spread since i am the only one in my family not at risk of dying from covid-19

    48. Simon Laliberte

      "I don't know; I just work here" - Donald Trump, president 😂

    49. Dark Glass

      BREAKING NEWS: Citizens all over the country died from holding their breath. What these deaths have in common is that all who died are all named Heraldo.

    50. Dovah Girlie

      Despite your channel always delaying videos by two whole weeks to Canadians, thanks for the informative update, John!

    51. PretzelDude

      The last 10-15 seconds of this video gave me the one true laugh I've had since all this shit started going down. Thank you good sir.

    52. Bullettube

      Salvadore Mazza or Salvatore Mazza, was a noted microbiologist who like many doctors wasn't heeded about how disease spread among poor people by the fascist Argentine government. So hearing that Trump ignored advice from medical experts should come as no surprise to many.

    53. Vincent Zhang

      This is my favourite episode so far. It is so touching and passes positive messages. Hold strong there, and we'll get over this.

    54. Dingle Berry

      The ending lmaooo

    55. Colton Williams

      Hi so @HBO this is an important video and should be subtitled. Deaf and hard-of-hearing folks need reassurance too!

    56. Demonic musician

      Take a lesson from us Canucks. Walk around with a hockey stick, and if someone gets within swinging range, hit them, then apologize, eh?

    57. Renovation Specialists

      This guys a dickhead 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    58. Clive Coy

      Not a Hamster John, it is a Gerbil.

    59. Kocheko Adversidad

      would be good to tell histories of people who didnt respect the quarentine and things went terrible wrong. i tell you a couple of names i.e. roberto dutra , Carmela Hontou, Miguel Ángel Paz, Fernando Riccomi,

    60. Madeline Bonavita

      John Oliver hits different without the laughing in the background

    61. Killgore _Trout

      Take care John et al. Looking forward to the next installment. Great job as always.

    62. Um Yes

      I would just like to point out that Trump broke all friendship with Canada and we now hate the USA even more. By the way, we have been faking liking you guys. We all think you are a bunch of inbred morons with low IQs. Banning 3M from selling masks to Canada is unthinkable and a crime against humanity.

    63. Justin Kwong

      Wow! A whole episode!

    64. ON

      Those 9.2k dislikes are Canadians

    65. Ap0Kal1ps3

      Thanks, John Oliver. I spent my 30 seconds swearing at you. Not because it's your fault all this is happening, but because it's cathartic to be angry at someone instead of ineffable events.

    66. Undercover Hat

      As of April 3, 2020, the USA has reported 275,048 total cases of COVID-19, with 7,067 deaths (these numbers are somewhat reliable, as testing is still mostly unavailable, and reporting may not be accurate). Current estimates offer a range of deaths from 100,000 to 200,00. This is not going to get better any time soon.

    67. Cuthbert Bracegirdle

      How anyone can take cheap shots at hockey when baseball exists in it's current form is beyond me. Go fuck yourself Oliver.

    68. So what

      From an international perspective, the so called leaders of the free world tried to buy exclusive rights to a possible vaccine and are stealing resources acquired by other nations while China are sending us staff and resources. The world is taking note, this pandemic is the end of the American empire over the world. We just hope you don’t do something stupid with your nuclear weapons before hitting rock bottom.

    69. Ralph sears

      John, it ‘s not a bad thing that Trump shakes everyone’s hands! Take one for the team America!

    70. William Schlass

      Look at the TDS. Its like a zoo! :)

    71. Pantomime52

      where did Coronavirus 3 go? lots of ink about it in the media, but it got pulled from your collection?

    72. Solomon Réal


    73. ihamed10

      This at same time funnier and cringer with out audiences

    74. Nathan Grange

      OMG. Why do white house reporters keep doing that? They must be aware that trump has difficulty understanding even simple short sentences, so why do they keep asking such long convoluted questions? O_o

    75. Wild1BillS

      Is this one of the Same left wing Morons that claimed there was nothing to worry about ?

      1. Lupus1444

        No, but are you a right wing Trump idiot one? We need toworry about Idiocracy of Trump! And I'm not even a left Winger...Or you McCarty see communists everywhere...?! He's just a comedian with a message...; too harsh to get it for you!

    76. bofooit gojo

      address feels like an emergency broadcast for the last of humanity.

    77. Kirk Dillabaugh

      Pretend you are a British parent and everyone else in the world is your child. Awesome.

    78. sda chik

      She might b a scary is that?

    79. Darren Ramphal

      Atleast put in a laugh track to treat this crippling loneliness

      1. bofooit gojo

        "The buck doesn't stop with me, it's not my fault." I paraphrased, obviously, but I wanted to cut through the crap, that's basically what Trump's saying. And John's signing off wa
