You don’t have to be loaded to find Drunk History hysterical. As long as the narrator is completely blotto.
As was the case last night when host Derek Waters took us on a rather unsteady stroll through Boston.
First up was a vodka-soaked local describing a little-known Quaker martyr from the Bay Colony, Mary Dyer (played here to hilarious effect by Winona Ryder. Is that the same bonnet she wore in The Crucible?). Her persecutor among the Puritans? Under that wig it’s Michael Cera.
Yes, it’s a crazily unreliable and foul-mouthed portrait of Colonial times. Enjoy.
