Over the past decade, Armando Iannucci has delivered some of the sharpest, most bitter political comedy we've ever seen - and from his teardown of the Blair government inThe Thick of It, to his Oscar nominated script forIn the Loop, to HBO's Julia Louis Dreyfuss vehicle Veep, his writing has always been topical and on-point.But ironically, his most relevant work yet takes place in 1953, with the grim-larious historical satireThe Death of Stalin, which follows the panicked backstabbing of Stalin's idiotic inner circle as they all jockey for position in a government on the verge of collapse. Sound familiar? MG agrees!
