Armando Iannucci is a satirist, showrunner, writer, television director and radio producer. As the creator of cult classics The Thick of It, Veep, In the Loop and The Day Today, Iannucci has given us some of the most hilarious and scathing portraits of the political and media classes, delivering some of television’s most memorable moments, with ‘soul-puncturing’ venom and brilliant wit.
In this very special event, ‘the hard man of political satire’ talks to Chris Taylor about comedy, politics and ‘Continuity with Change’.
