Everything That's Wrong With New Year's Eve, According To John Oliver (VIDEO)

If you can't wait till the new year for your fix of "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver", here's some good news, particularly if you're the kind who hates New Year's Eve.

As the British comedian put it so succinctly in a new clip on the show's YouTube page, "New Year's Eve is THE WORST."

Sure, saying goodbye to 2014 can't hold a candle to Christmas, Kwanza or Chanukah, but is New Year's Eve really that awful? Well, when you're forced to hang out with strangers while you're drunk, cold and tired, then yes, welcoming the new year really is the pits. Oh and let's not forget about waiting hours for Ryan Seacrest to tell you what time it is.

And while some of us will undoubtedly find themselves stuck in a NYE party anyway, Oliver has you covered in that department too. For his trio of not-so-surefire excuses to get you back in bed by 11:45 p.m., watch the video above.

"Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" returns in 2015 on HBO.
