In honor of President’s Day I decided to tell you all about the show Drunk History with Derek Waters on Comedy Central. It’s my new favorite way to learn history!
It’s a show where experts tell the real stories of what really happened in history while intoxicated. Actors act out the stories while lip-syncing all the crazy things the drunk historian says.
The episode that I watched most recently was season 4 episode 9 and it aired on November 29th, 2016. Lin-Manuel Miranda was the guest host and he talked about the relationship between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr.
The story was interesting and was very entertaining and included a facetime call from his friend Questlove and a spontaneous jam session of a Semi Sonic song.
My favorite quote was:
“In his last act of political, I don’t know if it’s genius, or f***-you-ed-nius, he damns Burr for life.” Lin-Manuel Miranda
Here is a preview:
It’s available on Comedy Central for free if you have a cable subscription. I believe it’s also free if you have a subscription to Hulu or Amazon. It’s available from $1.99 per episode on YouTube and Google Play. Also available on iTunes and something called Vudu.
