Drunk History, Whose Line Is It Anyway? and Neko Case’s “Man”



TV | What started as a web series for Funny or Die is now on real television. Drunk History is a sketch show like you haven’t seen before, however familiar it might seem. Watch genuinely inebriated comedians erroneously recount historical events as celebrities like Jack Black, Adam Scott and Bob Odenkirk reenact the drunkard’s narration. In one episode, Elvis (Black) breaks into the White House to meet Richard Nixon (Odenkirk). It’s a train wreck for the narrator and an absolute comedic treat for the viewer.


COMEDY | The show that was a commercial success through 2007 and continued to attract a following online has made a miraculous comeback. Whose Line Is It Anyway? returned to the CW a few weeks ago, and the improv team of Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles and Wayne Brady hasn’t missed a beat. Now hosted by comedian Aisha Tyler, each episode features a guest improviser and a celebrity guest, like The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan. Drew Carey isn’t missed, though there are fewer fat jokes now.


SONG | She’s had a long career, received plenty of accolades, and now she’s released a single before her new album becomes available on Sept. 3. You can listen to Neko Case’s “Man” on YouTube right now. There’s no music video yet, but you can see Case dressed up as a cowboy with a mustache as you take in her twangy-rock voice singing predictably gritty lyrics like “The fat fiends and bullies were no match for me, so taste them in my teeth, I’m a man.”
