M&M Apocalypse

Richard's son continues to come up with better material than his dad, without even trying. His guest is the unparalleled comedy genius Armando Iannucci.

They chat about how Armando once again predicted the future with his hilarious new sitcom Avenue 5, the lows and deeper lows of lockdown, what inspired him to write the mock-heroic poem, Pandemonium https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pandemonium-Some-verses-Current-Predicament/dp/1408715082/, whether he'd make a good PM, why Richard is upset about the casting of David Copperfield, the smell of an angel's fart, the precipice the world finds itself on the edge of and whether there is any hope for us and the most astonishing story of what a supporting actor chose to say to Armando on the set of Veep (which is the highlight of the series so far).
