Stephen Hawking Shows His Funny Side in John Oliver’s Series “Great Minds: People Who Think Good”

John Oliver kicked off his new series “Great Minds: People Who Think Good” with an extended interview with Stephen Hawking. For a moment there, it all feels a bit like a classic Ali G interview. (Remember Sacha Baron Cohen’s priceless interview with Noam “Norman” Chomsky?) But, soon enough, you realize that Hawking is in on the joke. And he delivers some good lines, with the hint of a smile.
