Armando Iannucci

Armando Iannucci is one of the UK's most prominent comedy writers, producers and performers, having helped create shows like The Day Today and I'm Alan Partridge among many others. His new film, which he both wrote and directed, is In the Loop. It follows a group of mid-level government policy personnel and their PR flacks as they steer the US and UK towards a war very much like the war in Iraq. The film opens in staged release in the US on July 24th.

Fans of Morris and iannucci, be sure to check out 'Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle.' The 'red button extras' for that show are excellent interviews being hosting by iannucci (who was EP on the show), and the scripts were edited by morris and armando as well.

Good interview jesse, thanks. There's another good interview from 2004 where armando talks about his education as a jesuit and his early standup/writing days which is very insightful.
