Comedian Sarah Silverman revealed shock if the mayor of Menlo Park, Catherine Carlton, called directly into express gratitude during a radio meeting on .
In August 2014, Mayor Carlton said, Ms. Silverman performed a skit on John Oliver’s HBO show, “Last Week Tonight,” that humorously denounced payday loan providers, recognized for recharging interest levels in excess of 400 per cent.
Into the skit, Ms. Silverman stated, “If you’re interested in getting an online payday loan, simply just select the phone up, then place it straight straight down once more and do literally other things.”
Ms. Silverman’s skit, element of John Oliver’s part on payday lenders, premiered within times of the Menlo Park City Council’s own conversation and ultimate choice to ban payday loan providers from Menlo Park on Aug. 26, 2014.
“that is amazing!” Ms. Silverman responded.
