Drunk History

I can’t write about what I want to write about; my head is full with thoughts about terrorism, solidarity, media coverage, consumerism and lament. I think I’ll write it all out but not yet.

I’ll just let that cook.

But in the meantime, I’m going through my bookmarks. One of these was an episode of Drunk History, one of my favourite comedy shows.

The premise is simple: people getting drunk. And recounting history while actors act out their drunken rambling. It appeals to that part of me that’s eating crisps and sniggering to South Park at 2am.

The best UK one was Romesh Ranganathan recounting the story of Tutenkhamun but the US one is the first I encountered.

This one with Octavia Spencer as Harriet Tubman is an excellent example.
