See 'Veep' star Timothy Simons prepare for the White House Correspondents Dinner

Posted on

The annual White House Correspondents Dinner brings together a host of celebrities and government personalities. But for those who blur line as actors playing government employees, the dinner can be a stressful evening.

Such is the case for Veep‘s Jonah, actor Timothy Simons. Vanity Fair and Funny or Die put together a look at Simons’ dinner preparations to show just what someone playing a political flack on TV has to deal with at the event. Simons practices talking to Congressman Other White Guy and asking Joe Biden for his secert stash of less than legal substances—but it’s tough tough to take the edge off before Nerd Prom no matter what. 

Watch Simons cope with what’s to come below as you prepare for the White House Correspondents Dinner on April 25.
