'Veep' stars respond to Australian injured while laughing

'Veep' stars respond to Australian injured while laughing

Some stars of "Veep" are responding to an Australian politician who injured himself while watching an episode of the HBO political comedy - because he laughed so hard he wound up knocking himself unconscious.

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.

If you've seen that episode, you may recall a scene where oaf Congressman Jonah Ryan is interviewed by Dan Egan on CBS news, with Dan ceaselessly hinting at Ryan faking still being on chemo for testicular cancer. "But the real question is - what episode?", she wrote.

"My wife walked in to find me knocked unconscious on the ground, with blood everywhere".

"I must have been out for only a few seconds because when I came to again, I was still laughing".

There's no such thing as being too amusing in the comedy business - unless you're a TV show that makes someone laugh so hard they knock themselves out. Pure gold, your highness! Take good care of yourself and for God's sakes - be careful!

The two then chatted back and forth, and even actor Timothy Simons, who plays Jonah, joined in, tweeting "hahaha oh my god".

The parliamentarian from Queensland told BuzzFeed News the incident went down last Sunday night while he was watching the Season Six premiere of the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning political comedy.

Veep actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus was among the stars and writers who responded on Twitter, which delighted Mr Perrett.
