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!
