John Oliver Trashes Woody Allen and His ‘Cafe Society’ On ‘Last Week Tonight’ – Watch

Come for the Trump bashing, stay for the bonus Allen digs.

“Cafe Society”

“Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver excels at drawing unexpected comparisons between people, places and things — often in the middle of one of his long-form rants — and last night’s episode of the HBO news talk series featured pretty stellar jab at Woody Allen couched in a series of jabs at Donald Trump.

Oliver was ostensibly reporting on another wild week in Trump’s campaign — one marked by a series of walkbacks, walkback walkbacks and maybe even an actual walkback walkback walkback — when he snuck in a dig at Allen and his latest film, “Cafe Society.”

“Anyone who wants to give their money to a Manhattan narcissist whose interests begin and end with the plight of white people, keep in mind that Woody Allen’s ‘Cafe Society’ is getting decent reviews right now,” Oliver joked. “Not great, but decent. It’s one of the ‘fine’ ones.”

Check out the clip below. “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” airs Sunday nights at 11PM Eastern only on HBO. “Cafe Society” is indeed in theaters now.
