Most of the folks in this part of the world would have consumed at least a small dose of the vigilant journalism-ish comedy show on HBO hosted by John Oliver called Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
Given that almost every channel has its version of similar shows the past few weeks have been a tough one for everyone involved in those productions, thanks to the coronavirus scare that has made social distancing and lock down a new normal.
Although the situation looked to rattle the show’s approach, John Oliver and his team have really taken it on their chin and beat the blue out and it in the past few weeks and made the best of the situation at hand.
- Showreel production costs – The complete home-production level graphics without much gimmicks have made production quite easy
- Topics Research – With the Covid-19 impact continuing, the research team has all the fodder for weeks together to beat the bush on the same topic and Trump is making sure they are not disappointed
- Audience management – Without the need for large studios, an entire team’s job of managing the audience is totally saved. Kindly laugh out loud at your own masked expense.
