The first time John Oliver agreed to do an interview with Westword, Michael Roberts noted the utter futility of pointing out when either party -- but mostly the "humble scribe" -- laughed due to the ubiquitous chortles throughout. Five years later, Humble Scribe No. 2 (aka, yours truly), could have ... More >>
