UK Version of ‘Last Week Tonight’ Cuts Queen Jokes
It was a big night for comedian John Oliver. He won an Emmy for best talk show for a remarkable seven years in a row. However, “Last Week Tonight” is being censored in the U.K. due to jokes surrounding Queen Elizabeth II. In one removed joke, Oliver says "We need to start with the U.K., which is still clearly reeling from the shocking death of a 96-year-old woman from natural causes." The comedian also made jokes about King Charles III that will be removed from the U.K. broadcast.
