History can be told in two ways. It can be told in an academic style, via a classroom lecture or a textbook. Or, it can be told in a funny manner that teaches the audience without the dry feeling of an academic setting.
Drunk History premiered in 2013 and has been a staple on the channel’s schedule ever since. Hosted by series co-creator Derek Waters, each episode tells the story of a specific moment in history told from the perspective of a narrator who is just a little too inebriated.
I think this television program is absolutely brilliant. It is a history lesson that makes the audience laugh and learn at the same time. I can’t think of a better way to tell the story of humanity.
I absolutely recommend it.
