John Oliver, host of “Last Week Tonight” on HBO, featured Stephen Hawking last summer. The resulting interview was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. In celebration of Stephen Hawking's birthday, here it is again.
Right out of the bag, Hawking puts Oliver on his toes, sarcastically agreeing that the interview was “the single greatest honor” that he has ever been given. Hawking and Oliver discuss the implications of the possibilities of parallel universes, the potential for artificial intelligence to overthrow mankind, and the chances of nuclear annihilation.
