Tonight is the season finale of Veep, and while the show isn’t done for ever, after tonight it will never be the same. And that’s because this is the last season with creator Armando Iannucci attached. If you’ve ever seen Veep or In the Loop or pretty much anything else he’s ever done, then you know this is a man whose words are more deadly than an army of White Walkers. Here’s a tribute to the beautiful withering words of Armando Iannucci.
And while the show has elevated the brutal one-liner to a genuine art, the longer rants are also brilliant.
But Iannucci, while able to lob a putdown in anyone’s direction, really found his muse in the one and only Jonah Ryan.
We’ll miss you, Armando Iannucci. Fuck you for leaving us, but thank you for sharing your brilliance.
