Comedian John Oliver -- you know, from The Daily Show -- will be at The Egg January 11. We have two tickets for the show and we're giving them away. BUT. WAIT. There's more. We also have a $40 gift certificate for dinner at the City Beer Hall before the show. And, yes John, WE ARE ALSO giving that away.
To enter the drawing, please answer this question in the comments:
John Oliver is British. So, what's you're favorite Britishism -- real or made up?
This could be anything: cheeky, crikey, loo, dodgy, nutter, flat, sixes and sevens. Or even one that you make up that sounds plausibly British. (It might help to watch a few episodes of Skins. But not the fourth season, because the end is completely bonkers.) We'll pick one winner at random.
John Oliver first got attention in the UK doing standup and a politics-themed comedy radio show. He joined the Daily Show in 2006. And he still co-hosts a satirical news podcast about US and UK events called The Bugle.
His show at The Egg starts at 8 pm on January 11. Tickets are on sale now. They're $32.50.
