Billy Eichner asks a gay man if he cares about John Oliver

Gay Men Eviscerate Comedian John Oliver’s Self-Esteem (Video)

Comedian Billy Eichner took to the streets of New York City to ask gay men one very important question: “Do you care about John Oliver?”

The results were hilarious—but probably not for John Oliver, host of HBO’s popular political comedy show Last Week Tonight. The poor guy had to tag along and watch a series of gay men respond to the question with answers ranging from “not particularly” to “I don’t even know who that is.”

The verdict: New York’s gay men don’t generally care about John Oliver (though they love Wendy Williams, host of the irreverent Wendy Williams Show). That’s a shame, because John Oliver generally cares about gay men. Oliver’s been outspoken on LGBT rights in the past.

Sorry John! But thanks for your advocacy.

    Funny video. Although I did have to look up who Wendy Williams was. And I know who John Oliver is. Does that say more about me, or gay men in NYC, or does it prove nothing and is just a harmless collection of navel fluff?
