There are a lot of obvious reasons to love Veep, Sunday’s Emmy winner for Outstanding Comedy Series. One of those reasons — and the motivation for many to keep coming back to the HBO comedy for more — is the quality of the insults that are dished out by nearly every character on the show, week in and week out.
We caught up with many of the cast members on the Emmys red carpet and discovered their favorite Veep insults of all time. Anna Chlumsky chose an insult she feels is timeless, while Kevin Dunn and Gary Cole landed on one that was used to go after one of the show’s most hated characters: Jonah.
Sam Richardson pointed out that while he doesn’t hand out any insults on the show, he does have his fair share sent his direction.
“They’re based on the actual person,” Richardson said, “so the insults cut, yeah.”
