He now hosts HBO's 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver', which is shown on Sky Atlantic in the UK.

Howard's past guests include musician Ed Sheeran, author and social activist Naomi Klein, actor/comedian Greg Davies, newsreader Fiona Bruce, entrepreneur Richard Branson, MP Dianne Abbott and Manchester United footballer Juan Mata.

The 14-episode series will be available on Sky One and Now TV.
