Video preview: John Oliver’s Terrifying Times

Comedy Central released a few video clips to tease John Oliver’s hourlong special, Terrifying Times, which debuts at 10 p.m. Sunday. I can tell you that even before the editing, Oliver’s special is something special, and prove it because here are my notes from attending the taping earlier this year. The reviews from the mainstream media are, well, mixed?! A guy from the New York Times essentially yawns. The Detroit News found Oliver quite cheeky. The AP focuses in on this bit about how a soundtrack can make all the difference.

Roll the clips!
