    2. 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.

    3. Danis Sharda

      JELLE'S MARBLE RUNS!!! AWESOME CHANNEL!!!

    4. Somewhere Upthere

      SUBBED!!!

      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.

    6. hey there

      why is this in trending 2 weeks later

    7. 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.

    8. 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.

    9. The Galvinizer

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

    10. 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.

    11. 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.

    12. HolyBuffalowings

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

    13. 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!

    14. Tim Cummings

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

    15. 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?

    16. 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.

    17. 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

    18. Legendary Weapon

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

    19. A T

      I LOVE the implication that the recurring Adam Driver bit is 100% on John, and his staff is just as baffled and morbidly amused by it as we are. But even so, I love the pure glee on John's face even more.

    20. FO Biggles

      I wish trumplethisguy would not talk. Ever again.

    21. Ken Lane

      I don't care about sports..................Is that wrong?

    22. Jarrett

      You think John might be losing his marbles a bit? ;)

    23. Ryan Alexander Music

      JON! Talk about how AEW is doing it right for wrestling shows!

    24. Laura Smith

      I got my uncle in law into Jelle’s Marble races. He’s a huge Seahawks fan and now he’s also a Minty Maniacs fan.

    25. Altorin

      Can't wait to see what he'll have to say about the madness happening right now

    26. Chez Chex

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="435">7:15</a> you really disrespected the king Vasily Kamatsky like that.

    27. ThatCuteNerdGirl

      OH MY GOD! I have been watching marble races for ages and I am so excited that this is happening 😂

    28. Sawsan Mohammed

      ...athletes should take a portion out of their big old paychecks and help those that were working the parks.

    29. Jason Tindell

      Jesus loves you all very much!!!

    30. kcnq

      It’s vasily komatsky!

      1. kcnq

        Ps: I know I massacred his name

    31. Jay Extarys

      Let's go GREEN DUCKS xD Best sponsorship ever made.

    32. Bruce Freadrich

      Oh no! What is the U.S.A. to do? With neither panem nor circenses?

    33. Trae X

      Say... here's an idea. .. Read a goddamn book if ur bored and call friends and family and actually TALK on the phone if it's that bad! #90slife

    34. Hotspur37

      Go O"Rangers

    35. Nick Young

      im so dead, we love u adam driver

    36. TheEllod

      TI 10 was canceled, why is he avoiding that?

    37. RustyHedge

      Wait why is this only available now? Is it because I am Canadian?

    38. Alyssa S

      I thought Gritty was going to try to eat my soul when he stood up to bow

    39. Battle Cat 51

      Finally Canada got something

    40. Bla Bla

      Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalls of chaos.

    41. TheJerbol

      No offense, I stumbled upon jelle's marbles before this, watched one, and didn't want to watch more. Because they're marbles

    42. Theodore

      I live in Canada so we will be okay but if we don't have hockey in September I dont know what is going to happen.... Increased crime? Depression? Folks body checking their kids into the pantry

    43. eSSentialplays

      Been watching the Marble events for quite some time; excited to see it grow! Too bad eNascar and iRacing wasn't mentioned. Indy, F1 and Nascar virtual sim racing is brilliant!

    44. Marc Geddes

      My god! The marbles are incredible!

    45. Christian Corpi

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1191">19:51</a> I love John's smug face right when he is saying how the Marble league is in danger, you just know he can't wait to announce his sponsorship

    46. wolclaw

      huh i totally forgot about the olympics but yeah makes sense that they moved it but wow that must be one hell of a nightmare for the organizers like most of the other leagues it just involves not using the venues and maybe some refunds and date shuffling but the olympics are not just about the sports but the spectacle as well.

    47. Midnight Oracle

      I am so excited for this marble league

    48. Midnight Oracle

      I have already watched so much of these marble runs. Even before this video I found them and they are absolutely amazing.

    49. Ayobami Macaulay

      You destroyed the name. Damn It Johan!!!. hahahaha!! <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="299">4:59</a>

    50. Joshua Enns-Wind

      “Oceanics were a fucking mess last year” fucking preach John

    51. Roger Furlong

      The Kometsky slapping videos are truly epic

    52. Tim McLaughlin

      Let’s go Thunderbolts! Have had their logo on my car for years! Love them!

    53. KalowJager

      My I suggest checking out GDQ and other Esports in these trying times? Video game speed runners and Splatoon 2 have been filling me with joy lately

    54. Ninja Named Bob

      I think "menacing obstacle" is possibly the most John Oliver a pick-up line can get. Kudos, you British Bulldog.

    55. Keval Prajapati

      Competitive Slapping and Marble olympics... This is the first time I knew about weird stuff on the internet before LWT crew found it. Maybe you guys should look up the pain olympics

    56. Rain Stickland

      I would really love to see an episode about how many children have killed people with unsecured guns in the US. As a Canadian journalist, it's been severely frustrating to learn that they don't keep statistics about that. They do, of course, keep statistics about men who have shot themselves in the penis, for which I am eternally grateful. (It's an average of two per year, if you're curious.) Edit: And what the hell happened to episodes 4 and 5 for COVID-19??

    57. Baph

      All jokes aside, Adam Driver is actually an amazing actor.

    58. TheFreeThinkingMan

      America desperately needs marbles right now considering their president has clearly lost his...

    59. Juni Post

      golf was the sport of social distancing before that was even a thing. also... other names for the island I would pick are shadaloo and "Isla Kumate".

    60. Emilia Dawson

      How about fencing with longer swords

    61. Michael Goodwin

      THANK YOU!!! Love Jelle's Marble Runs!!! THANK YOU!!!

    62. DJB3lfry

      Holy shit, I totally didn't realize Last Week Tonight was sponsoring Jelle! Now with all this funding, I can relax and watch the O'Rangers dominate everyone once again! #OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    63. 64standardtrickyness

      You think a professional athlete would have a ****ing treadmill since every fat*** has one they never use.

    64. Lindsay Duet

      Another big thing is broadway, many shows are not coming back after this shutdown and so many actors and actresses have lost jobs. People like Sabrina Carpenter barely got a run on Mean Girls. There is no possible way that shows can come back until quarantine is over

    65. Tjaart van Aardt

      John, The world needs you to do a Pyramid Scheme Part 2 Video, covering new Dorito/Pile of bullshit shaped Pyramid Schemes like Crowd1. Our Family and friends keep getting caught up in scams like this and the level of brainwashing involved is phenomenally disastrous for millions of victims around the world... its particularly bad here in South Africa. #johnvsdimaryp

    66. No Logic180

      HBO: We need to make a new Game of Thrones Serie. ''John Oliver'', no way just sponsor Jelle's Marble run PS.....Marbles are nude to :)

    67. Alex Smith

      Hearthstone is easily the best sport to watch during this time: exciting, same strong fanbase, same sports feel, and no human contact needed. Maybe Esports in general (DOTA 2 would work as well) - but Hearthstone is the most fun to watch.

    68. jl sc

      Gee, if only we had a president that would fight the virus instead of ignoring it, we could all get back to work safely. But lets ignore it and send everyone back to get sick and die.

    69. Russianvids Ben Liashenko

      He has to give 33 simpson a shoutout people wake up

    70. Paulo Ribeiro

      Ah Marblelympics. We've been watching this in the office during lunch time for the past half year.

    71. Jack Craig

      I wish John could cover the ap exams and collegeboard

    72. Angela Rene

      I discovered this show last year and I got to admit.. I’m in looooove!! 😍 More John Oliver please!! 🙏 We need his honesty and humor!! 👍🏼🤗🤩

    73. humansRpepul2

      Lmfao Dilly Dilly Fuck Philly

    74. Sebastian Wardana

      shit dude, i played with marbles when i was young... why did i move on???? this was a multimillion dollar opportunity!

      1. bcvbb hyui

        Marbles eh? 🎶i wish i was like you, easily amused🎶

    75. Rasp Berry

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="115">1:55</a> , this is gold

      1. bcvbb hyui

        Just waiting for the video on the protests!

    76. vshnu maneee

      Is it just me that finds it awkward to watch this show without the laughs at the background?

    77. Andrew Wild

      OOOOOOOOOOOOO'Rangers been a fan of that channel for awhile so happy to see it on here

    78. Evan Sargent

      Is it weird I feel like I need to laugh because there isn't a crowd to laugh for me....

    79. Liana H

      John's grey hair is honestly a vibe

    80. Norbert Zillatron

      Just don't lose your marbles ... Like grsel.info/video/binteo/2qymY3iGkqPRrGU.html
