Armando Iannucci: An Epic Poem for Our Times
Sponsored by
RBS

Emerging from the same BBC Radio production that launched the careers of Chris Morris, Stewart Lee and Steve Coogan, Armando Iannucci has been at the forefront of British satire for over two decades. In Pandemonium he turns his eye to the pandemic and Brexit in the form of a mock epic poem. Iannucci pairs his sharp insight into politics, media and culture with his love of the truly absurd, to unmatched comedy effect. He speaks with Jenny Niven.
