Do You Care About John Oliver?

Have you watched Billy on the Street? Billy on the Street is an American game show hosted by Billy Eichner. The concept of the show is to bring random celebrity guests and go around New York City asking questions such as “do you like (Ex:) Will Ferrell?” while WILL FERRELL is standing right there, along with playing games with the public and Billy talking about pop culture with pretty much any stranger.

His guests range from Academy Award winner Lupita N’yongo to Emmy Award winner Jon Hamm. One of his recent guests was John Oliver, known for his HBO hit show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. He asked gay people on the streets of New York City if they cared about John Oliver, and got some mixed answers.
