Armando Iannucci is a comedy genius. Fact.
Another one: Time Trumpet', the new BBC series by him and his team, is bloody funny. The show "looks back on events of the first 30 years of the 21st Century from the perspective of a nostalgia show in the year 2031." Hilarity ensues.
Yet it's the subtlety and detail in Iannucci's work that is truly rewarding. After several interviews with an aged 'Natasha Kaplinsky', I noticed a lovely detail in the evolved London skyline behind her, far right. See below. As with everything about Iannucci's satire, it's only one micrometer beyond believable. Or, it's funny because it's nearly true.
