Veep has demonstrably the highest rate of jokes per minute of any show on TV. Five seasons in, it shows no sign of slowing down. Literally. In just the first trailer for the new season, the jokes come so fast that you may have to watch it twice to catch them all.
Creator Armando Iannucci has now left the show, but if the trailer is any indication, Veep doesn't seem to be struggling. Guest stars include Hugh Laurie and John Slattery, among the regular crew of miscreants like Matt Walsh and Tony Hale.
For the record, I laughed hardest at the way Julia Louis-Dreyfus says "You've brought honor to America with your kayaking."

Veep Season 5 premieres Sunday, April 24 at 10:30/9:30c on HBO.
