Frank Rich, drama critic turned political columnist, talks about being an executive producer on HBO's satire Veep, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the Vice President.  It's the first show Rich has produced since becoming a creative consultant to the pay cable network in 2008. Plus, Matt Walsh, who plays the shlubby press secretary in Veep. He was a series regular on the cancelled NBC series Outsourced and was an early correspondent on The Daily Show. But until now, he's been most known for playing the doctor in The Hangover. Walsh is a veteran improviser who co-founded Upright Citizens Bridgade (UCB) years ago with Matt Besser, Amy Poehler and Ian Roberts. He talks about how improv can help you in the audition room and make you a better listener.
