Drunk History

Last night my good pal Jesse introduced me to the Drunk History series which features inebriated people recounting historical events. The events are re-enacted by famous actors who actually lip-synch to the drunken narration! The brilliant concept came from Derek Waters who is the production assistant for the Sarah Silverman show. Speaking of female comedians, Jen Kirkman narrates volume 3 and 5 of the series and they are by far the best two! The historical accuracy is quite impressive but this should come as no surprise as Kirkman is a brilliant woman. Check out some of her stand up. I especially like her bit about female masturbation.
