From the GATW Archives: Sundance 2010 Video Interview: Actors John C. Reilly, Crispin Glover, and writer/directors Jeremy Konner and Derek Waters (DRUNK HISTORY)


A few days before taking off for Sundance, I received an email letting me know that John C. Reilly, Crispin Glover and the brilliant minds behind the DRUNK HISTORY shorts were available for interviews. So I put in a request not thinking much of it (after getting so many rejection emails, there’s only so much whiskey my liver can take), but a few days later, we were confirmed to interview the crew. This will probably go down in GATW history as one of the most fun interviews we’ve ever done.

It was so cool being able to speak to Reilly (MAGNOLIA is my favorite film) and Glover (who star in DRUNK HISTORY: TESLA AND EDISON), but it was Jeremy Konner and Derek Waters who I was thrilled to grab an interview with. These two boys are the crazy brains behind DRUNK HISTORY. If you don’t know much about the DRUNK HISTORY shorts, YouTube them - you will not be disappointed.

Check out the video interview after the jump. A few things though, it’s very long (clocking in at twenty minutes) and the audio’s pretty irritating. We shot in a hallway at a hotel, so we could only monitor so much background noise. I hope you enjoy watching this interview as much as I enjoyed doing it.

Also, I wanna note that Jeremy and Derek one the Sundance award for Best Short Film. Well deserved!

From the GATW Archives: DRUNK HISTORY creators Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner Video Interview


Here’s another video interview Rusty and I did with Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner, creators of DRUNK HISTORY. I particularly like this one a lot because we dive into DRUNK HISTORY’s past, present, and a bit of the future. Here’s a little sober history on DRUNK HISTORY: it was created by Derek Waters and features a drunk comedian narrating about an historical event. The fun part is when a famous actor (Michael Cera, Danny McBride, Paul Schneider, Will Ferrell, Don Cheadle, Crispin Glover, and John C. Reilly to name a few) dramatically and hysterically reinacts the event, including burps and fuck ups. Waters writes all the episodes while Jeremy Konner takes over the directing, shooting, and editing. Oh, and they find and supply the narrator with as much alcohol as they need to make DRUNK HISTORY possible. They are two of the coolest and brightest dudes you’ll ever meet in Hollywood (seriously).

You can catch all DRUNK HISTORY episodes on, or tune into the new “Funny Or Die Presents…” series on HBO. Hit the jump to see the interview, and head overHERE to see our first interview with the boys and actors John C. Reilly and Crispin Glover.

There’s a little bit of interference here and there in the interview. Sorry!
