John Oliver coming to Chicago Theatre in December

Written by

Comedian and host of HBO's Last Week Tonight John Oliver is coming to the Chicago Theatre for two nights of stand-up on December 30.

The British funny man garnered a good deal of fame during his time as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He rode that success to his weekly HBO program, where he takes a satirical look at the previous week's news.

Tickets will range in price from $55 to $75 and will go on sale on Friday at 10am, with a special presale through Live Nation's mobile app on Wednesday at 10am. 

Also, in case you missed this week's episode of Last Week Tonight, check out Oliver's take on televangelists (he also legally forms a new church called "Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption").
