    1. TheLastHylianTitan

      Can someone please explain to me why John is so thirsty for Adam Driver?

    2. gaccer

      Imma tune in for the marbles. They were the delight of my childhood.

    3. SalvaPot

      And the UFC has just trademarked "UFSEA", John Oliver you did it again!

    4. Tom Panico

      "Philadelphia sports fans are a horde of monsters..." NO ONE LIKES US WE DON'T CAAAAAARE!

    5. Holden Miller

      How many years have you had grey hair John

    6. airyaman84

      All that Money and no mention of the "Business daddy", shame!

    7. Mesmerized

      I can only hope that professional sports never come back

    8. Dubho Max

      The set up for the Adam Driver bit was absolute Gold.🏅👌🏾 It's my favourite LWT running gag.🙌🏾

    9. Gustavo Ferroni

      Why no laugh track?

    10. Joe Mastoloni

      Who is here after Dana White actually applied for the trademark “UF-SEA” after watching this segment 😂

    11. 5q1d Gamerboi

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1229">20:29</a> true, Oceanics is my favorite team and I was gutted they came last, although I personally thinks it was the “host’s curse” (A thing that happens a lot in Jelle’s channel) that hit them so who know maybe they’ll replicate their podium finish in 2018 #tidepride

    12. Hadrian'sWall


    13. Luis Jimenez

      You guys are amazing for sponsoring. Lol

    14. Benedikt W

      Still: Who the hell is Adam Driver?

    15. Rob The Usher


    16. Justin Ivins

      I’ve said that since Rudy Gohbert tested positive is when this all started. He got the nba suspended and everything followed suit.

    17. Siyabonga Mchunu

      You folk have lost your marbles...

    18. Renata Casasa

      I think this is absurdly amazing I ducking love it

    19. dragonchiId

      So, the hype clip says Marble League doesn't open for close to another month. In the meantime, I'll be filling my need for sports with Kusogrande. Four gamers are handed a crappy video game none of them have played before and race to make the most progress in a hour. They are ranked by best attempt ("high water mark") and awarded points; as the rounds progress the gamers with the fewest points are eliminated. The matches are filled with atrocious graphics, terrible controls, and on-the-fly reverse-engineering of buggy code (although the music is sometimes strangely impressive). It's e-sports but actually interesting because half the battle is figuring out what the game actually does. P.S. I am not associated with Kusogrande in any way; it's just really fun to watch gamers suffer (they signed up for it!)

    20. Cheng-Cheng Pan

      The race at the final of video looks very .....funny? Well that's look so formal that make me laugh for a while. And if my grammar looks weird please don't laugh at me, I'm not a native English speaker so....

    21. Latifah Munawaroh

      When he said "Rather it was in danger because it turns out they're not actually looking for sponsor", I was already laughing SO HARD!!! John Oliver always delivers!

    22. 奚景旸

      where is this week's episode?

    23. Stacey Abrams

      Fuck this bloke

    24. Dr. Zombie X

      As the 3rd child, who happened to need an emergency c-section to be born; I both resemble and resent that comment. 😂

    25. jager64xxx xxxpanzer

      In 2011 America helped us Japanese in the name of the Operation Tomodachi(friends). Even though we share a tragetic past, I know for the FACT that you American people are our best Tomodachis in the world. Now that our country had triumphed over the corona virus, we'd LOVE to return the operation Tomodachi's favor. がんばれアメリカ!!!!🇯🇵🤝🇺🇸

    26. Mike Hartman

      I remember a lot of times that the jets played in front of an empty stadium.

    27. Thoreaux

      Man, some of these jokes could REALLY use a laugh track. The quiet pause after that Adam Driver bit...

    28. That Neon 305

      Racing is definitely the best option for a social distancing sport as this points out

    29. Jeorme McCollom

      So OSU football players (not paid) have to risk their lives for the budget of the state of Oklahoma and of course, the head coach of OSU. The NCAA is such a joke

    30. Jeffrey Craig

      When you play video or audio of that Fraud, I switch off. Good night. (Maybe I'll try watching one of your videos again in the future.) Your deep dives, interesting and funny as they used to be, are not good enough to make them worth watching or listening to when doing so means having to hear Little Donny the Fraud say any words, besides "I hereby resign the presidency effective immediately." I wouldn't mind hearing him say those words. And ONLY those words. And once would be plenty.

    31. Lorenzo Quirante

      Ayyyyyy critical viewers know what's up with our boy vasilli

    32. Jordan Weimer

      That punchline was so literal! hahaha

    33. flakeycakey

      Surprised that the Taiwanese and Korean Baseball leagues weren't mentioned. Robot fans and cheerleaders eating hot pot. Go go go!

    34. blablaelgore

      I actually started to watch the marbles and then I came here, lol.

    35. Killed by Death

      While I am aware of the US-centric nature of this show, the lack of coverage of football (actual football where you use feet not handegg) in this show hosted by a British guy is very surprising. Major football spans the UK, Spain, Italy, Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium and many more not only at the European level of Champions League but also the top division and subsequent tiers, where many clubs could be non-existent by the end of the summer. This would also give this episode a chance to highlight sport swashing by human rights abusing middle eastern countries such as eminent purchase of Newcastle by journalist murdering Mohammed bin Salman and previous purchase of PSG and Man City. This episode of "Sports" was a missed opportunity. Far too many people are affected by whats happening in Football during this pandemic than by any sport in the US.

    36. Robischek

      Nice troll... oh wait...

    37. various corn

    39. phaze

      "is this sexual or violent? yes."

    40. Ace Diamonds

      thank god kobe bryant isnt around to see this.

    41. MissMiia

      I honestly cried when I saw that Jelle’s Marble Runs became sponsored. I have been a fan for years! My first fan art (ever) was Red #3 and yes, I was 21 when I did it.

    42. Salvador Castillo jr

      Wow marble league I never would of thought that was possible. In that case I was known to take kids favorite Marball collection back in the fourth grade competitively hyv kicking their ass

    43. Catherine Brown

      Not going to lie, that trailer for the Marble Olympics SLAPPED. Consider me subscribed ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°

    44. TheBombanater

      Lets all reflect on the human tragedy that trump hasnt got cornoa and died yet

    45. Anarchy Seeds

      What a fsggot this John is. I bet he’d say the opposite if his job was affected. Self centered losers. Retards.

    46. Terpe DeVereshene

      I much prefer this competitive slapping.....

    47. Renato Oliveira

      Hell yeah!!! Go Balls of Chaos!!! Congrats Jelle's Marble, you deserve that recognition!

    48. wildcatste

      The absolute callousness in the way these owners are willing to risk their players lives for money is disgusting. Good on the major league unions for pushing back. Wishing all the best to college players and others that aren't unionized.

    49. Pope Brandon Brownson

      Can't help you on the jersey, but if you're trying to get the best Professional Slapping analysis' on the internet and add a few inches to your penis, you're gonna wanna check out Moist Cr1tikal EDIT: CAN YOU NOT REMIND ME HOW BAD THE OCEANICS DID LAST YEAR?!

    50. AnimeAmimatorMizore

      I hope the Adam Driver gag never ends. Please, it's utterly hilarious. I dare you to Zoom meet Adam Driver.

    51. Natalia

      “Is it sexual or is it violent?” “Yes.”

    52. Heather Johnson

      If ESPN is so hard up for content perhaps they should consider covering some of the hordes of sports they typically completely ignore. Plenty of past content for them to present to their viewer base that folks will not be familiar with, because for some bizarre reason in the eyes of ESPN pool and poker are more sport-like than things like rowing. Even though one of those is considered one of the most physically demanding sports there is.

    53. gold dust woman

      Is this the last one for the season?


      We watch reruns ALL the time. We would love to watch or hear the play by plays of the Orioles from the 60's and early 70's! It's the sportscaster patter that is so delightful. They have done a great job of turning their dog's walk into interesting content.

    55. Liani Thomas Prewitt

      Please tell me there is team merch for sale!!!

    56. Heerin Cha

      Oceanics fan here and YES we are waiting for the team to turn things around! #RideTheWave

    57. DJ Barrett

      When is this weeks video coming out?

    58. manyobvo

      That Sidenote challenge 🤣😂😂

    59. Ya Boi

      Throwaway comment, I just want to see if HRsel algorithms really delete comments about Wumao, or 五毛. Apparently they're the Chinese online censorship wing, and I heard a rumor that comments about them are being deleted from HRsel videos. Which would be weird since HRsel is an American run platform that is already banned in China. So I'm testing to see if it's true.

    60. veizour

      LMFAO NICE Sponsorship! YEAH!

    61. Miss Priss

      My God, you suck! I can’t believe you have fans.

    62. ModWarrior

      Kind of disappointed that John didn't cover Motorsports or iRacing.

    63. Sebastiaan Jacobssen

      Random link of the day:

      Germany has already figuered that out, since the stadium onwers dont have that high running cost if 70.000 stay at home. just the teams play, staff and teams are group testing. 1 test for each team + personel and stadium crew, if postiv the group is taken out 1-4 weeks and they are tested individually. (actually the idea of group testing and going down in brackets to find the infected one to reduce overall test isnt new, to control infections in meat, especially privatly hunted meat, its done like this for more than two decades, so labratories now how to do it. that means television companys can still make money and more importantly pay their workers. same for team owners and stadium staff. cause at the same time, their is some kind of profit ban. so not until every worker even the ones made to stay at home are paid. noboby gets aprofit out of that match. but a the people who stay at home can at least watch new sport and new matches. and thousands of people dont loose their jobs. its a win win. the ladder and leader board might be fucked up cause a team does taken out for 4 weeks. but neither the owners nor the players nor the staff care that much cause A they can all play and do things they probably want to do and b they dont all go bankrupt. you just need some flexiblity and solidarity. Its difficult but it do able. Germany 80.000.0000 people 8.600 death. Per 100.000 out classing any other first world nation. microdrop. germany out. was a bit to cocky till the last bit. marble league in netherlands damn. what a sport.

    65. Iffy350

      Nice to see Jeffery Epsteins sex islands being repurposed for fighting.

    66. elliott mariess

      YESSSS i actually hate most sports but i’ve been an avid watcher of marble runs! nothing more fun than sticking it on after a late night drinking sesh with your mates and all placing bets on random marbles. it’s great!!

    67. Daniel Mariscal

      Other contact-less sports include: drone racing, battlebots, hatchet throwing, golf, league of legends

    68. Curtis Corse

      You rock, John. I love that you do stuff like this!

    69. Lord Mortarius

      The Overwatch League and esports in general is thriving and is something that more people should get into honestly.

    70. Peter O'Toole

      Just watched waco and I keep seeing young John as David Koresh. Idk why but I do

    71. ShockD

      Why does John look like CGI?

    72. Gexmex

      Make sport players play a e-league by playing their own characters in sport games!

    73. Red Pete

      This shit is boring.

    74. Kenny B

      Man I spat out my coffee when they did that close up on the marbles with the F-1 sounds

    75. Quỳnh Anh Bùi

      I think now until this point, there should be a proper Adam Driver fanbase with John Oliver on the lead that makes the little Johnny boy's wish come true. The name of the fanbase, you guess it, Backseater.

    76. MomsBiscuits

      You guys never cease to amaze me. Ima go watch some marbles now

    77. Chuck Norris

      you kinda realize how not funny he is without the pumped in laughter

      1. Rohit Rajagopal

        To each his own.. He is pretty damn funny to me..

    78. Sijtze Roar

      you know without corona there was always another risk, and he was telling the truth about corona virus. young people have a way lower risk to get corona, and the younger people have a way better way to beat the virus. the younger you are the easier it it for you to beat the virus. uually only people who are old or already have a diminished way to fight virusses. are the ones dying from corona but then again. those people could also die from a flue

    79. Sijtze Roar

      also you now ollver? yuo are domplaining that baseball players arent perfect ? really ?

    80. Sijtze Roar

      heh i think watching sorts is dull ! who cares about a team i dont play in ? im happy they are stopped.gaming online for the win !
