‘Veep’ Cements Julia Louis-Dreyfus as One of the Greatest Performers in TV History

Decider - 05-10


When Veep ends this weekend, it’ll ascend to its place in the TV canon as a triple Emmy winner for Outstanding Comedy Series and the show that meet the unenviable task of making a presidential comedy during this time in history–and it did so with a sneer and swagger. It’s easily one the funniest comedies of all time, the best written and best performed, and it elevated the obscene put-down to a fine art. But that’s not all Veep did. Veep, without question, cemented Julia Louis-Dreyfus as one of the greatest–if not the greatest–performer in TV comedy history.
