Trivia

During the 2013 EMMY awards show, both Tony Hale and Julia Louis-Dreyfus won awards for their performances. When they stood on stage together, as Louis-Dreyfus was speaking, Hale pretended to feed her lines, just as he does on the show, playing her obsequious personal assistant. See more »

the VEEP get my vote as funniest new show anywhere,
24 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was surprised to see only one vote in for this hilarious new show,i always assumed HBO attracted a more discerning kind of watcher,ah well I'm sure word of mouth will do the trick.

VEEP is a deliciously bracing concoction brought to us courtesy of the man behind the similarly themed British TV show THE THICK OF IT and movie offspring IN THE LOOP,Armando Iannucci.

Like those projects as well as many others(Iannucci often works with those other mainstays of British comedy Steve Coogan and Chris Morris)Iannuccis dry (very)sharp wit is on full display here as he delivers machine gun pace dialog and manages to hit all his targets with a resounding bullseye.

do yourselves a big favor comedy fans,seek out this brilliant show,tell all your friends because it would be a real shame if this show falls between the cracks becoming the TV version of the real vice-president,you know its out there somewhere but u can never seem to spot it!
