laugh while you learn!
By L. Ell
OMG! I love history<3 This show is so funny, with drunk people telling true stories from history. The historical events they speak about are generally less known history. So, you get to learn some fun history while you laugh! :) (It's not for kids, because of the bad language.)

Drunken, Warped, Hysterical American History Lessons
By Boston Gal
Been hooked on this series since it premiered, but Seasons 1 and 2 are still the best. What a wacky, warped way to enjoy American History. You'll also actually learn something. The shtick: really drunk comedians and actors narrate the event, and then the Drunk History actors re-enact the story and lip-synch with the drunken idiot telling the story. It's hysterical.
My teenage son and I really enjoy watching these episodes together, we laugh our heads off, and we've both been inspired to read books about the events they're covering. Kudos to them for selecting some of the more obscure historical events that haven't gotten their due in our classrooms or history books, and introducing us to new heroes. Especially love the stories about the Lincoln assassination, Al Capone, the FBI vs. Martin Luther King, and the invention of Coca-Cola.

Stuff You Never Learned in College
Saw a snippet of this series on TV in the break room and had to have the DVDs! I think I learned more history through Drunk History than I have ever done in all my years of college! What makes it funny is the voice-over's in the story teller's voice, the cussing and the scenes of the story tellers barfing in the background or passing out. If my son was older, I'd let him watch it. I wish there was a PG-rated version but if that were the case, it would probably not be as funny. I also wished they had more American history vs historical events, such as the creation of Kellogg's cereal.
