Beep, Beep Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the VEEP Seat!

Veep, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, premiering Saturday, April 22 on HBO is going to take you by storm!  My wife and I attended the advanced screening of the new show at Regal Theaters, 42nd Street, NYC and I must say, not knowing too much about the premise, I was shocked.  Let me tell you this, by far, one of the funniest shows I’ve seen all year compared to Impractical Jokers.  

So, Julia, she is playing the role of a VP and her staff members, amazingly cast, played their roles perfectly.  Without giving away too much of the story, let me point out her assistant, Gary, this guy was incredibly funny as were the other members of her staff. 

Veep, lots of twists and turns, funny scenarios, great one-liners, shot perfectly with good camera angles, overall, one hilarious show that I am excited about watching.  I highly approved, highly recommend this show and I encourage you to watch when it hits the airwaves.  

I give this show 4 ½ stars!


VEEP a New Reason to Get HBO

You've probably seen a million and one posters on the subway advertising the show VEEP. Initially, I thought it was going to be a serious show on politics but it turns out that it was about what's funny about politics. It is nice surprise to see Julia Louis Dreyfus in the role of vice president of the United States in the show. They picked the right person for the show not only because she looks the part but she's funny without being to over the top. Even if you don't like politics, you'll like the show because it is well-written and gives you some sort of insight as to what happens in the White House. It may be real or serious but I'm sure it is based on real life. This is the funniest show I've seen in a long time and truly deserves a 4 star rating. If you don't have HBO, VEEP is your new reason to get it.
