Last Week Tonight With John Oliver continued with a new edition June 29th on HBO with Ugandan LGBT activist Pepe Julian Onziema as a guest. Check out clips below!

Presenting a satirical look at the week in news, politics and current events, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver continued with a new edition SUNDAY, JUNE 29 (11:15-11:45 p.m. ET/PT), followed by other weekly shows debuting subsequent Sundays on HBO. In this week's show Oliver commented on Uganda's anti-LGBT laws and interviewed Ugandan activist Pepe Julian Onziema.

Other HBO playdates: June 29 (2:00 a.m.) and 30 (8:30 p.m., 3:25 a.m.), and July 2 (midnight) and 3 (5:15 p.m.)

HBO2 playdates: June 30 (7:30 p.m.) and July 1 (9:30 p.m.), 4 (8:30 p.m.), 5 (midnight) and 6 (6:30 p.m.)

Last Week Tonight With John Oliver is the only weekly news-oriented comedy series to be presented on Sunday night. Taped in New York a few hours before it debuts on HBO, each edition of the show features a mix of Oliver's topical commentary on the previous week's events, pre-taped pieces and an interview.

According to a recent GQ article, Oliver excels at making "blackhearted satirical cracks, whistling through the studio air like ninja stars," while TIME magazine has written that Oliver reports the news "with all of the bemused incredulousness it deserves." The Washington Post observed that "the Oliver twist on the news...could vault 'Last Week' to the top of the crowded ranks of TV shows making merry at the expense of the news and the news media."

An Emmy®- and Writers Guild Award-winning writer, John Oliver was previously a correspondent for "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," joining the show in 2006. He first came to prominence as a cutting-edge political stand-up performer in the UK with a string of TV appearances and sold-out solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival. Oliver won the Breakout Award at the Aspen Comedy Festival in 2007 and went on to write and star in the Comedy Central stand-up special "John Oliver: Terrifying Times," followed by the series "John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show," which he has hosted for four seasons. With longtime collaborator Andy Zaltzman, Oliver co-writes and co-presents the popular weekly satirical podcast The Bugle, which currently receives more than 500,000 downloads a month. He also has a recurring role on the comedy series "Community."
