Review: Drunk History Goes Way Beyond Drinking Games

For over four seasons (already picked up for a fifth) Comedy Central has aired Drunk History, the brain child of Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner. And while the premise suggests the show exists alongside fratboy-comedy, Drunk History stands out as something different from anything else on TV. The simple premise, comics getting drunk and telling stories, has resulted in educational TV for adults. Entertaining, clever, and legitimately informative, the show goes a step beyond…reminding audiences that while history can seem boring in the classroom, history should be fun

12 Comedians With Real Style

We focus on everything comedy - and that includes comedy style. Not just their presence or their material, but the fashion sense they rock.

But other comedians manage to both be funny and develop a style of their own, and so why not celebrate their individuality and smashing sense of self. Here's a ranking of 12 comics with the best style.
