Stephen Hawking passed away at the age of 76 this year. He was a great scientific mind, but he also had a fantastic sense of humor. John Oliver, the host of “Last Week Tonight” on HBO, featured Stephen Hawking in 2014. The resulting interview was one of the funniest things we have ever seen. In celebration of Stephen Hawking’s life, 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.
