Just the kind of high-spirited hoot you'd expect.

This is the show that proves comedians make the dodgiest, most entertaining historians and think up the tidiest, cleverest formats for television.

Jul 31, 2019 | Full Review…

Derek Waters is still the master Drunk Whisperer, able to pull natural humor out of his narrators while keeping them on track. But there's still room for Drunk History to push the boundaries of its own conceit.

Sep 28, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

It is also a celebration: In getting hammered, the storytellers' respect and enthusiasm for their assigned or chosen subjects only increases, until they are no longer able to form words to express it.

The results are often hilarious, though I doubt they'll do much to help you on that upcoming history exam.
