Another fantastic episode of “Drunk History” aired last week, this time focusing on the theme “Dangerous Minds.” Here are the best moments from each narrator and their story!
Chris Romano on the life of Rasputin
Words are hard when you’re drunk. Especially big words. Chris getting hung up on the word “aristocracy” and resorting to “the fckin rich *fckin pieces of sh*t” was worthy of snort-laughter. Honestly, that description tied in really well with the rest of his story about Rasputin, so kudos, I guess.
Did you know that Rasputin had two dicks? No? Well, if Chris Romano says it’s a fact, it’s a fact. How standing up in a hot tub and pulling down his shorts helped this argument is beyond me. But we’ll just give him the benefit of the doubt, yeah?
Doug Jones on W.C. Minor
This episode reached the height of irony when W.C. Minor, who contributed thousands of quotations to the Oxford English Dictionary, seemingly forgot the word “widow.”
Duncan Trussell on the Escapades of Jack Parsons
“These boots have been in my garage. Do you know what I found last time I went in my garage? Black widows!”
And, in that moment, we were all Derek.
Jack’s magic wand looked more like a lightsaber, which was kind of fitting since he founded one of the organizations that made a breakthrough with space exploration.
And in conclusion:
Everything has a new definition: Derek Waters dressed as a wizard (a.k.a. Alistair Crowley) and talking about “sex magick” with Jack Parsons in front of a psychedelic backdrop.
This week’s episode was a lot of fun! My favorite narration was that of Jack Parsons, hands-down. But the other two were fighting close for second.
February kicks off with an episode packed with a fabulous African-American cast! You can expect to see Questlove, Method Man and Raven-Symone celebrating the early years of hip-hop, as well as icons like Berry Gordy and Nichelle Nichols! This episode is going to be incredible, I can just feel it. Don’t forget to tune in to Comedy Central tonight, Feb. 6, at 10p to catch the latest “Drunk History”!
