    1. Jacqueline Ainsworth

      Thanks for this delightful break from a seriously crappy couple of days.

    2. John Badalutz

      Do you really take yourself seriously? You insult everyone, you respect no one

    3. Jennifer Appel

      Everyone watch Star Craft 2 Matches XD

    4. lilsniper117

      WOW! I thought the marble run channel was just kinda a weird offshoot channel all us strange LTsel explorers stumbled across. I never thought they would see a mainstream spotlight! What a wonderful sponsorship! Those guys have earned their recognition IMO

    5. Eric Dufrane

      I literally didn't laugh one time.

    6. DemJem

      "used dog toy" got me lol

    7. Sara Kraehling

      Marble league amazing. Thank you introducing me to this.

    8. FatalHitzX

      you need a laugh track so i can be sure when to laugh... R.I.P audience

    9. Japanese With Martin

      Who else already knew about Vasily Kamotsky from Critikal

    10. Shaun Hunter

      Why do these keep getting blocked in Canada and released weeks later?

    11. Amanda

      $14/hr as a COOK? Fuuuuuuuuuuck man what a rip

    12. Transonik Armory

      the fact that you choose to speak disgusts me...

    13. The Angry Finger

      Good to see Daniel o Brian going strong. Also donate to Children of the Night

    14. Thomas Uniat

      Wait. Go back. I CAN RENT A GOAT!?!?

    15. fjames72

      Your complaining about vOliver but your watching dumbass

    16. Andre Tabarnak


    17. Holzkohlen

      Oh wow, they have "Last Marble Standing". This shitty world does not deserve a marble league but here we are.

    18. Toth f

      why no video segments when actual doctors admit thay pay to write covid for every kind sick people papers?

    19. Abdur-Rahman Rana

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="300">5:00</a> Haven't seen that one yet 😂

    20. Furious Sherman

      John Oliver: Sports are all shut down. NASCAR: *Am I a joke to you?*

    21. Drop MC

      What the fuck John it’s been 2 weeks. I don’t know what is going on outside. Please tell me

    22. Steve Dixon

      Not gonna lie, watched the marble Olympics (not sure if same guys), had fun, production value was great (one even had the 'fans' get into a scuffle over a bad play). Recommend for all to watch at least one episode. Unrelated note, i think whenever Trump says something that is utter BS his hands go further apart. Now I cannot un-see that tell. Anyway...marbles.

    23. Shivin Wason

      It’s quarantine and John is still out here doing ridiculous shit with HBO’s credit card

    24. Fay Anne Aura Arts

      To anybody thinking the marble thing is stupid: it's no more stupid than sports in general are.

    25. Oglush1

      I didnt know i need that in my life

    26. Fay Anne Aura Arts

      I will never understand the appeal of sports. How do you distinguish new content from old content? It all looks exactly the fucking same to me. It's not even different enough within a single match to be even remotely entertaining to me. I would literally feel more entertained watching paint dry.

    27. Fay Anne Aura Arts

      I believe it was the Turks who used to consider punching to be for women, and slapping to be for men. They could literally slap someone to death with just one slap. Which is just bloody impressive.

    28. Nolan Kuffner

      100000 for outreach and a full sponsorship? Just thinking about how many people that will help got me unexpectedly emotional. This is absolutely incredible ❤

    29. Bob Mccown

      Holly shit! John Oliver looks like John Oliver's dad. When the hell did that happen.

    30. Hamilton


    31. Turtle is as Turtle Does

      I don't miss watching sports at all. I miss playing them.

    32. CmdrGreene

      I guess I'm one of the few who doesn't care about sports. It looks like America's economy revolves around it

    33. Sarah Binkley

      Marble Runs Link

    34. Joshua Austin

      The adam driver bit just KILLS ME

    35. yannick martens

      Yesterday, this video wasn't available in Canada. Today it is. It shows it was uploaded 2 weeks ago. John, do you not love us Canadians? What hath we done to spite you? No but seriously, what gives? Why do we have less access to your content than the states?

    36. rocco malarett

      Quien se dio cuenta de LUIS SOJO en la foto de los Yankees jugando despues del once de septiembre? hahaha, Great show!!! This one was really good!

    37. Chelsa Conley

      OMG That’s fantastic!!!

    38. D Bone

      I'm sorry but what NBA player doesn't have access to a baskeball hoop where they live?

    39. D Bone

      I don't even watch Shark Tank, but somehow I knew about the Squirrel shocker and the Elephant thing... Wtf? I feel like they were mentioned on this show before?

    40. Tr4newreck

      with proper testing its still possible to hold these events, the UFC have done it several times now, without a single problem, stop bitching about it already like its a world ending event, we encounter new viruses all the time and every time, the news and current event shows dramatize it to ridiculous extents. The news and shows like this are the reason people go into hysteria, and do utterly stupid shit like buy up all the toilet paper in a grocery store, sometimes people are not more informed for listening to news and shows blindly, they are indoctrinated into stupid behavior

    41. Teelo

      Proposal: we just publish official scores for all the sports claiming the teams/players all played in isolation without cameras, without telling anyone we just made up all the scores.


      Fuck you Oliver you liberal douche

    43. Yaume Lepire

      I'm frankly just anxious for gyms to be opened and safe again...

    44. Blue Plague

      John's continuous sexualization of Adam Driver is literally hilarious and fun- I cant help but squeak every time. John, you're shameless XD

    45. Jaws Trock

      How weird, I just viewed the whole season 2018 and 2019 like, last month.. youtube knew...

    46. Robert Lee

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="604">10:04</a> Lol...After all that, i was imagining Adam Driver walking behind John Oliver. Then, as John stiffens up by the unexpected touch, Adam slips a hand into Johns hair and shuffles it...then Adam walks away as John stares wildly into the camera as his jaw hits the desk. <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="743">12:23</a> Well said. Now do you understand why i've stopped watching any form of organized sports for over 35 years? <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="795">13:15</a> With all due respect, Dr Fauci needs a refresher course on how infectious diseases run their course. Yes, SARS did eventually disappear. But that magic bullet has left the building and Corona19 is hear, stay. No one in Washington wants to keep everyone confined until it disappears from having no one to infect, and there won't be a vaccine until the two-hundred-and-fifty thousandth death. So it's clear that Corona19 is in the US to stay and no one has any "good" ideas on how to proceed. Maybe, you shouldn't. <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1298">21:38</a> Who, so desperately needs a pay raise, came up with that idea? If it wasn't for my general disinterest in everything that has the word "sports" in it, i would probably watch marble racing. But knowing that there is an "organization" behind this event, i won't. If sports can't belong to everyone to practice and enjoy, then i don't care for it. If you can't practice bull running in your city because it might kill someone, then i don't care for it. As for the face slapping, i don't understand how there were no marks left on the faces after impact.

    47. Aine Robertson

      This just shows how much money we're wasting on *primarily male* sports industries, like I kinda understand them being on par with actors & the like; &this is coming from a native Bay Arean who genuinely enjoys going to giants games bc, minus the aggressive fans, likes going to games (particularly Irish Night) to socialize. But the amount that major networks make off these games is crazy compared to the amount that goes back into the local community (I genuinely can't think of it now & I'm too tipsy to do resrearch but there was a ball game event in the Bay that sf made an activities park (?) around the piers area & stadium & kicked out some homeless people there was no move to donate to any homeless shelters or similar orgs as compensation) ....Also Vince NcMahon looks like a if a sewing pin was transfigured into a real human person that is all

    48. ElephantGod __

      How is the video still in trending

    49. band

      you know, if people are really strap for sports, might i suggest e-sports like the overwatch league? players don't have to be in the same building, nor do any commentor, coaches, doctors, or fans, just set up a web camera and a live stream of the game (both of which can be done from home) and stream the games while having the commentor go nuts over what they see

    50. Snack Time

      This man can convince HBO to spend their money on anything.

    51. theDane70

      If only the Wii had just came out this

    52. 1joshjosh1

      This guy is starting to get on my nerves talkin and talkin yes yes yes you're so smart but you don't do anything. IQ of 120 but not accountable for anything so can never make a mistake only talkin and talkin and making comments

      1. Robert Lee

        John, stop using fake accounts to tell people how bad you are...:)

    53. Branden J

      Who died as a result of the UFC¿

      1. Branden J

        Hell who got infected

    54. Joseph Delacruz

      Your show sucks

    55. A Stv


    56. Elias Sednawi

      Marbula E is the best racing sport I've ever watched.. Thank you John :)

    57. wiggles877

      Can't wait for month from now when Balls of Chaos get caught up in a sex scandal. Or the furor that brews when a printing error has all the pennants say "Raspberry Racists"

    58. Katie Smashes

      UFC has now held 4 events, since returning. Zero more cases. Seems they are doing some form of contract tracing pre-screening of the athletes ahead of making their fights. At any rate UFC has tested everyone involved in the 4 events Multiple times before the fight. At their own expense. And I think they have done well. And have now moved to Vegas for the next 3 events to take place, in a facility they own. Other owners, and commissioner offices are, calling Dana for advice. Of course Florida deemed the, WWE essential. 🙉 I love mma. And Dana and the fighters, want to do this. With no live gate. Cool.

    59. John Doe

    60. Digitalhunny

      Gritty looks like a muppet, soooooo cute!

    61. crystaldeath609

      The Marble League was so delightful I temporally forgot all of the horrible things Oliver said about Adam Driver earlier in the episode.

    62. Yoshimitsu4prez

      The reason I know this show is great is it isn’t weird at all watching him do it with no audience.

    63. Carter D. Glennon

      watching this after dana white did apply for the rights to uf-sea. edit for spelling

    64. Zain Elias

      I'm surprised and slightly disappointed John didn't once mention Liverpool especially when this was all about sports. This from an Arsenal fan btw.

    65. Danis Sharda


    66. Somewhere Upthere


    67. Dragon

      A big thing John didn't mention while talking about WWE is that they taped live shows in Florida even before the Governor said that Wrestling was an essential service, and while doing so they fire and furlough 40 % of their staff, not because they struggling financially, but to make sure that made the high profits that they promised their investors. Not to mention while WWE had said their would be no punishment for wrestlers not showing up due to health worries, this hasn't been true, for explain, the Wrestler Sami Zayn was strip of his Title belt for choosing to stay home. Now compared to WWE, other Wrestling companies have been handling this pandemic with much more care. AEW for one choice to do pre -taped show until for roughly two month until the city of Jacksonville allowed them to do live show there, and even then a large amount of their stars and staff have been allow to choice if they wish to stay at home or not. But however in this Pandemic many smaller independent Wrestling have not been able to put on shows at all, and many independent wrestlers have been struggling during this time. So if you're are a fan of independent wrestling, do try to support them by buying one of their t-shirts to help them out.

    68. hey there

      why is this in trending 2 weeks later

    69. Tomasz Pasternak

      I'm leaving to watch inanimate objects rolling down preconfigured tracks. Anything is better than watching this guy who looks like a parrot working at a bank. Except the bank is deserted because of COVID then the parrot gets depression and wants to jump off a bridge but he can't because he's a parrot and parrots can fly.

    70. Stoodmuffin Personal

      "So desperate we are willing to watch grown men slap each other in the face," uh? Desperate? That was fucking RAD. I need to stream that. WOW. Fucking neat.

    71. The Galvinizer

      I am excited for all the movies set in the Marble Cinematic Universe

    72. Saraphim

      I honestly think I just watch these videos for the Adam Driver content now. Nasty shed? Yes, I'm going to use that in my everyday life.

    73. Navroze Panthaky

      Oh, come on John. Citing that wrestling is an essential service is a stroke of genius. There is no better, no other way than that to keep the millions of stupid Floridians content and at home. It's not like they'll ever run out of plot twists for "Days of our Wrestling". Hell. If we ran 24/7 premium wrestling and Monster truck rallies across America for the next six months, the Democrats would win by a landslide.

    74. HolyBuffalowings

      Omg yes! I've gotten my co workers onto this the other week.

    75. LordOfNothingreally

      Fuckin' John Oliver's fetish for Adam Driver kills me. I have no idea what it's based on, but it just. fuckin'. kills me!

    76. Tim Cummings

      Man.... johns lost his marbles.....

    77. Raven Barbosa

      It’s strange to laugh at his jokes and no one else does. Just me laughing alone and pondering what the world has come to. But are we really surprised?

    78. Adam McCarthy

      I absolutely love that john oliver is sponsoring the marble run. This is going to be an amazing tourney to watch. Thank you John, so much.

    79. Sharda Hartley

      My husband was legitimately devastated when I told him the individual marbles did not in fact have full teams of people behind each one

    80. Legendary Weapon

      And the NHL is coming back Edit - really shows how unfunny this show is without your audience who laugh at everything.
