WE’RE BACK! BEAUTIFUL MONDAY WITH MR. JOHN OLIVER. YOU HAVE TWO BEAUTIFUL YOUNG BOYS. >> YES. >> Stephen: HOW BRITISH ARE THEY VERSUS AMERICAN? >> WELL, PROBABLY LESS BRITISH THAN I STUPIDLY IMAGINED BECAUSE THEY’VE REALLY BAFFLE BEEN THERE. >> Stephen: YOU HAVEN’T RUBBED OFF ON THEM? >> WHEN I THOUGHT ABOUT HAVING A KID IN THE PAST, I COULD ALWAYS ASSUME THEY SOUND LIKE ME BUT THEY DON’T. >> Stephen: THAT BROAD OF A CARICATURE OF AN ENGLISHMAN? >> I THOUGHT IT WAS A DOMINANT GENE BUT IT DOESN’T SEEM TO BE SO. >> Stephen: YOU HAVE SUCH A CLASSIC ENGLISH ACCENT. >> I DON’T. IF YOU WERE ENGLISH, THIS NOISE WOULD HIT YOUR EARS HORRIBLY. >> Stephen: I’M SAYING IT DOESN’T. ( LAUGHTER ) ( PIANO RIFF ) I NEVER SAID IT WAS PLEASANT. >> VERY FAIR. OH, SURE. OH, SURE. ( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: SO WHAT SHOULD IT SOUND LIKE. >> THE ANCESTRY BLOOD IN IT, I JUST FEEL COMPELLED TO TELL YOU WHAT TO DO AS AN IRISHMAN. >> Stephen: WHAT WOULD BE AN ENGLISH ACCENT, IN YOUR OPINION? >> WELL, YOU KNOW, HE’S GOT LOTS TO CHOOSE FROM. YOU COULD GO WITH YOUR CLASSIC LONDON. YOU COULD GO WITH A SCOUSE, OR WHERE I WAS BORN BY SOUND BASICALLY LIKE YOU’RE SLIGHTLY SEDATED.

( LAUGHTER ) ( SPEAKING IN DIFFERENT ACCENTS ) AND THE REASON YOU HAVEN’T HEARD THAT BOYS VOICE IN MANY KIND OF CLASSIC BRITISH COSTUME BRAHAM AS IS THOSE PEOPLE IN BRITISH HISTORY WERE KEPT DOWNSTAIRS.

>> DOESN’T THIS WORK LIKE THE PGA? DO I HAVE TO HAND THIS TO HIM WHEN HE TAKES IT BACK? I DO? I GUESS I’LL SEE BERNIE HERE WITH DEAD FLOWERS. I FEEL THIS IS A KIND OF PERSONALITY CHANGER. >> Stephen: YES. I FEEL VERY DAINTY. >> Stephen: WELL — SITTING DOWN IS SLIGHTLY CLIMACTIC, BUT I HOPE YOU USE THE ENERGY TO GET OUT OF THE INTERVIEW AT SOME POINT. >> I’M SURE THAT’S THE NORMAL WAY TO DO IT. >> Stephen: SURE. BOTH OF US ARE HAPPY IN THIS KIND OF DISAPPOINTED AWKWARDNESS. ( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE ) ( CHEERING ) >> SEASON 6 OF “LASTWEEK TONIGHT” STARTS SUNDAY. JOHN OLIVER, EVERYBODY!
