The VEEP Speaks

Monday, March 16
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Ballroom D
Austin Convention Center

An uncensored, all-in conversation with Julia Louis-Dreyfus on the comedy of politics and the politics of comedy. The star of HBO’s Veep (with cameos from co-stars Matt Walsh and Sam Richardson) dishes on her “sponge-worthy” Seinfeld days to Veep’s searing parody of the Obama-era Beltway. Has lampooning our politicians contributed to our culture of cynicism or is it the reason we tune in?
