John Oliver Explained The Commonwealth Games On Last Week Tonight


If you’re anything like me, you’re incredibly handsome and know nothing about the Commonwealth Games. Fret not my good-looking friend, Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver broke it all down on Sunday night, so you’ll now be able to discuss things like “lawn bowls” and “netball” with that British lingerie model who keeps calling you.

Then you can show her all these ridiculous moments captured on video from this year’s festivities, via our very own Rick Chandler.

Seriously though, most of the games are simply derivations of Olympic events — but netball appears to be a fever dream hybrid of basketball, lacrosse, and “just standing around.” If they can’t use backboards then what do the coaches scream at their players about?
