British television legend Armando Iannucci — the mastermind behind such shows as I’m Alan PartridgeThe Thick of It and the brilliant 2009 feature In the Loop — paid a visit to The Daily Show tonight to promote the second season of his American political satire Veep, now airing on HBO. With John Oliver filling in as host while Jon Stewart is away, the interview took a refreshingly English turn as Iannucci revealed that he was once invited to speak to the MI5 about comedy, and the pair poked fun at Washington D.C. and the N.S.A. in the second part of the extended interview.
