John Oliver Tackles Bengals, Public Funding

Last Week Tonight's John Oliver pokes fun at the Bengals in his latest rant on publicly funded stadiums

Last Week Tonight star John Oliver tackled publicly funded stadiums on Sunday night. One of the targets of his jokes was Cincinnati.

It appears the Bengals have a clause in their lease that states if someone invents a holographic replay machine, the city must purchase it for use in Paul Brown Stadium, despite the economic hardships the city is enduring.

Public funding for stadium improvements is clearly a hot topic in Cleveland as well, but at least the Browns weren’t the butt of Oliver’s jokes on Sunday night.

He finishes the segment with a halftime speech that again pokes fun at the Bengals, but does so in a very Cleveland-centric way.
