An Evening With Armando Iannucci

No longer available

Great Hall, Auckland Town Hall

Talks & ideas

The Emmy Award-winning Veep, the Bafta-winning The Thick of It, and Little Englander Alan Partridge are just some of the satirical creations of the writer, producer and director Armando Iannucci.

The sharp Glaswegian greatly admires Charles Dickens, Woody Allen and the Pope but not former UK prime minister, the “bum-faced southern ponce” David Cameron.

His current projects include a movie about Stalin’s last days. Iannucci talks with Toby Manhire about his work, and whether the new world order is putting satirists out of a job.
