How much do you remember from your history lessons in school? Do you think you would remember more if the professor had been drunk and adding their own insights and opinions? Welcome to your adult survey course—Drunk History.
Originating as a web short project on FunnyOrDie.com, creators Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner came up with the comical premise after a friend recounted a story at a bar. They expected a few laughs with friends—and at each other—but ended up with an internet sensation. When Comedy Central picked up Drunk History for a full season in 2013, Blake McClure (ASC) joined the team as Director of Photography (DP). McClure and crew shoot Drunk History on RED’s versatile 5K EPICMYSTERIUM-X.
