Adam, Azeem and returning guest Rahul Patel discuss the TV and film career of Armando Iannucci, director of 'The Personal History of David Copperfield'.

Armando Iannucci has directed three movies since 2009, but his celebrated career in comedy and satire stretches far beyond 'In The Loop', 'The Death of Stalin' and 'The Personal History of David Copperfield'. The Scottish-born writer and director shot to fame with his work with Chris Morris on 'The Day Today' in the mid-90s (which also featured the first appearance of Alan Partridge), and established new heights for British satire with 'The Thick of It', later creating 'Veep' in the US. Adam, Azeem and returning guest Rahul Patel discussed Iannucci's inspiration, what makes him such a memorable director, and just how accurately he depicts the pitfalls of civilisation as we know it.
