To much oil on air filter?

I think when I washed my filter I re oiled it to much. I cut 1 house today and the mower backfired when I shut it off. Got home and now won't start I looked in the filter and oil dripped from it down to the carb I can see oil. Won't start but turns over and sounds like its about to. What to do?
