The Daily Show’s John Oliver Engaged

John Oliver may be known for his comic quips on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, but the correspondent on the Emmy-winning Comedy Central show is definitely serious when the subject is matters of the heart. The British-born comedian recently revealed to People magazine that he has asked Kate Norley, his lady love of the past two years, to be his bride.

A romance which began at the 2008 Republican Convention led to a July 2010 jaunt to the Caribbean. During the couple’s getaway stay on the island of St. Thomas, the stand-up star proposed to the former Army medic. The social satirist kept the happy news a cherished secret until Comedy Central’s Night of Too Many Stars autism benefit.

The couple are currently contemplating a walk down the aisle in 2011.
