Until recently, we were only familiar with John Oliver’s insanely funny comedy from his regular appearances on The Daily Show. In May, when we recorded the Mountain Goats at the Masonic Temple, John Oliver was the act that immediately preceded John Darnielle. As we set up to record about 10 feet from the stage, John Oliver made a not-disapproving reference to the fact that there would be recording of his set — unfortunately, we did not record his hilarious set as we were just connecting and testing the equipment at the time. Given a second chance, at the East Village Radio Fest last Sunday, we took the opportunity to record John’s brief set. Some of the material was the same as the Masonic performance, but John added new political material and some references to the Seaport location.

We recorded from the same location as the other three acts of this set. There is very little wind noise and John’s voice is clear. Enjoy!
