The Armando Iannucci Shows & Clinton: His Struggle With Dirt
These hilarious satrical shows hosted and written by Armando Iannucci could be described in various ways, but suffice to say they are very witty and sarcastic with that finely honed ironic tone Iannucci does so well.
"WHO IS ARMANDO IANNUCCI?" I hear you cry. The best thing to do if you know your British comedy is to provide a quick run-down of the shows he's been involved with. It's an impressive list. Be sure to try and watch everything he and his fellow comedy giant and ally Chris Morris have done over the years.
He was the creator of:
The Alan Partridge programmes (TV's only real forerunner to The Office / Extras)
The Thick of It
The Friday Night Armistice
Clinton: His Struggle With Dirt
He was the co-creator of:
The Mary Whitehouse Experience
On the Hour
The Day Today
