Armando Iannucci - Part 2
Charlie Higson & Friends
Charlie's chat with the satirist, writer, producer and director Armando Iannucci continues as they discuss making The Fast Show and I'm Alan Partridge - and Armando describes what it's like to spend 8 hours a day with Alan. They talk about mixing current affairs with comedy and how The Thick of It and Veep were created. Plus, what links Paradise Lost to comedy?
