Honest and funny
18 April 2015 | by Martin BaudartSee all my reviews

The title says it all: a drunk person will tell you his version of some of the best pieces of American history. This is as honest as can be. And it's funny!

There are things only drunk people will say, and this show is all about that: what if we put drunk people's thought in a sober people mouth? Furthermore, what if we put it in historically famous people's mouths? Add to the mix a fairly famous cast (on the sober side) and comedy central's budget, and the result is deliciously funny

If the semi-incoherent babbling of drunk people gets on your nerves, if you expect some high level third degree intellectual Monty Pythonnesque humor or if you can't condone making fun of American symbols like Abraham Lincoln or Rosa Parks, then this show is not for you, but then again, you ought to ask yourself :"what was i expecting from a show called drunk history?"

In a few words, let's not kid ourselves and let's take the show for what it is: a funny idea like the ones you get when you're drunk with your friends put together by people who have the talent to make it funny.

Well done comedy central, and well done Derek Waters.
