Hiccups and History

Drunk History is a show with history “lessons” narrated by an intoxicated scholar and reenacted by famous actors like Joel McHale and Seth Rogan.

I was previously hesitant about this series because I thought the setup seemed obnoxious, but I must admit that their Halloween episode is surprisingly well done. Not only are the scenes entertaining (it’s hilarious to watch the actors lip-sync the drunken ramble), but each lesson includes verifiable facts and interesting details you might not have known before about the actual event. Hey, learning is learning, amirite?

Here’s their tipsy depiction of the story of Giles Corey (a Salem man accused of witchcraft):

Watch the full episode (which includes three stories; the second of which is my favorite) on Comedy Central by clicking here.
