John Oliver introduces America to Australia's maladroit prime minister, Tony Abbott

John Oliver's HBO show Last Week Tonight appears to be convinced that Americans are either incurious or undereducated about the world outside the 50 states. And instead of delivering a stern lecture, Oliver seems determined to make America care through sheer force of humor and packaging.

Between the malaprops and other bumbling, this might just make you feel better about your leader, wherever you live. --Peter Weber
