John Oliver's first guest is former NSA director

John Oliver might have promised nudity and f-bombs for his new talk show, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, but it sounds like Sunday’s premiere might be a bit more tame.

EW has confirmed that Oliver will launch his new HBO series by welcoming Gen. Keith Alexander, the retired director of the National Security Agency and head of U.S. Cyber Command, as his first guest. Gen. Alexander officially left the NSA in March of 2013.

In a press release, HBO describes the “topical half-hour comedy series” as “a mix of Oliver’s topical commentary on the previous week’s events, pre-taped pieces and an interview.”

Last Week Tonight With John Oliver debuts Sunday, April 27 at 11 p.m. on HBO.
