Australian politician knocks himself unconscious laughing at 'Veep'

Veep Stars On Aussie MP Who Knocked Himself out Laughing at ShowMore

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) - An Australian lawmaker said Friday he was stunned that he had grabbed the attention of stars of the US television series "Veep" by laughing so hard at an episode of the political satire that he choked on his sushi and knocked himself unconscious on a kitchen bench.

People talk about laughing their heads off, or splitting their sides - but it is not often you hear of someone cracking up so much that they choke on a bit of sushi, knock themselves out on the kitchen table and end up needing stitches.

Perrett explained that it was a recent episode where Congressman Jonah Ryan shaves his head to convince people he has cancer - which she seemed to believe. "But the real question is - what episode?" I was knocked out for a second or so and there was blood everywhere.

When directly asked by the queen of comedy herself, Perrett answered with: "Episode One in this new series".

Not only did the MP require three stitches, he also suffered a black eye - something which lead star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays Selina Meyer, struggled to comprehend when responding to a tweet about the incident on Twitter.

"Be careful if you're eating watching a very amusing TV show!" Pure gold, your highness!

Veep, created by Armando Iannucci, is in its sixth season on Sky Atlantic.

Veep, created by British satirist Armando Iannucci, is a United States political satire which evolved from Iannucci's British sitcomThe Thick Of It. Veep is in its sixth season, but Iannucci has said he's unlikely to make any more as real U.S. politics now defy satire.

But it seems it was all worth it for the lover of political comedy.
