Dreyfus gives a masterclass in comic timing, and the scripts are as drum-tight as you'd expect from these scribes

Julia Raeside The Guardian

There’s plenty of furiously inventive swearing and the tart jokes are delicious

Alison Graham Radio Times

some incredibly well observed quirks and 'misjokes' of the American political system kept it fresh and on-target.
Three episodes in and you’ll be well and truly hooked


Christopher Hooton Metro

an inspired piece of writing

John Crace The Guardian

a gem... the episodes seem to end so quickly, you’ll wish they lasted an hour... it mines as much comedy as possible from every bit

Tim Goodman The Hollywood Reporter

hilarious new comedy... It features a great cast and characters that are taken to the extreme, yet never come across as caricatures... Tune in

Matt Richenthal TV Fanatic

a smart, foulmouthed, incredibly funny trip through Washington's corridors of power, hypocrisy, and appalling incompetence... [Louis-Dreyfus is] genius, and so's the show

Jess Cagle Entertainment Weekly

a black-humor vision of politics at its bleakest... Naturally, it’s hilarious

Carina Chocano New York Times

razor-sharp, foul-mouthed comedy that could only be on cable

In Touch Weekly

Veep is a hoot... [a] hysterical backstage peek at dysfunction and incompetence in high places

Matt Roush TV Guide

corrosively cynical and very funny

Rob Brunner Entertainment Weekly

slick and clever

The Telegraph

It’s like The West Wing gone horribly wrong

hilarious
