The “Veep” Sweepstakes: We Have A Winner

I didn’t like her character on “Seinfeld,” and I couldn’t watch her “Christine” comedy (though it did help break the post-“Seinfeld” curse), but the drumbeat for Julia Louis-Dreyfus‘s new comedy, “Veep,” is too loud for me to ignore the show, which premieres this Sunday. Daily Beast says: ‘With HBO’s acerbic and dazzling political comedy Veep—which depicts a power-hungry if buffoonish female U.S. vice president and her staffers—Scottish-born creator Armando Iannucci turns his attention to American politics, bringing his deadpan wit, rapid-fire dialogue, and comedy of the uncomfortable to the corridors of power in Washington.’
