Description

Join friends and Veep co-stars Matt Walsh and Timothy Simons for a weekly comedy podcast where they dive into a rewatch the Matt and Tim way -- beginning with the question, “what is memory? And is what we remember actually what happened?” They’ll also unpack the question “what’s it like to be two supporting actors on Veep as well as in their real lives in Hollywood.” So Veep fans feel free to ask your questions, leave your comments, and if you’re lucky, you may even win a free tuxedo. Expect expert interviews, cast and crew drop-ins, and commentary on politics so ridiculous, it might seem fake on a comedy show.

Submit your questions for Matt and Tim and tune in to see if your question makes it on an episode! Record your questions here!

Diedrich recalls his time on ‘Veep’ and how he got to wear the “fame hat” because of the show; he talks about how taking his kids to the beach made him bomb his audition in front of Julia Louis-Dreyfus; how he never could memorize his lines and therefore was constantly nervous on set.

Stephen Colbert | VEEP’S #1 FAN
4238

If you thought you were a Veep fan you just might question that after meeting this super fan: Stephen Colbert! To say Stephen is obsessed with VEEP is an understatement. He references and quotes the show better than the two guys that were on the show! Life imitates art as Stephen reflects on his time as a political commentator while comparing the “larger than life” characters on the show to real-life politicians. It’s a complete geek-fest as Matt and Tim test Stephen on his Veep trivia and finally, Stephen weighs in on the age old debate: Is Mike McLintock or Amy Brookheimer worse at their job?

With Tim coming back into the studio, the co-hosts get right back into some “healthy-ish” banter while they look back on the episode, and as prophesized by Julia Louis-Dreyfus herself, it perhaps becomes more apparent than ever that they may need a good couple’s therapy session…or two.

With the President (conveniently) out of the country, Selina looks to make headway on filibuster reform and meeting with some 'normal' people. A health scare temporarily allows Selina to be commander-in-chief but delays her plan for a media meet-and-greet at the local yoghurt store.

Tony talks about how nervous he was going into the show and that he constantly thought he was about to get fired and replaced. They share how they found comedy in camaraderie even while feeling like they were thrown into the thick of it.

Second in Command Podcast Trailer
73

Join friends and Veep co-stars Matt Walsh and Timothy Simons for a weekly comedy podcast where they dive into a rewatch the Matt and Tim way -- beginning with the question, “what is memory? And is what we remember actually what happened?” They’ll also unpack the question “what’s it like to be two supporting actors on Veep as well as in their real lives in Hollywood.” So Veep fans feel free to ask your questions, leave your comments, and if you’re lucky, you may even win a free tuxedo. Expect expert interviews, cast and crew drop-ins, and commentary on politics so ridiculous, it might seem fake on a comedy show.
