Veep Creator Armando Ianucci Got to Talk Comedy with British Security Agency MI5

If you’re vaguely familiar with the name Armando Ianucci, please commit it to memory when you get a chance for all the comedic genius he’s been responsible for. The creator of Veep (as well as The Thick of It & In The Loop) stopped by The Daily Show to talk with fellow Brit John Oliver about lecturing MI5 on comedy, simply walking into the state department, and the comedic brilliance of the American political system.
