To assist in your patriotic duty to self-isolate, 10 Play is dropping a surprise new series every day for 10 days, including exclusive access to the brand new series, Drunk History Australia.
Australian comedians narrate their favourite stories from history while sipping on their favourite tipple. The result is a hilarious, skewed and anachronistically-challenged anecdote, re-enacted by a comedy ensemble and some very unexpected faces.
Episode one’s buzzed story teller, Anne Edmonds said: “Look, we could all use a stiff drink at the moment and boy did I have a few in this first episode of Drunk History. I can’t help but feel that Dame Nellie Melba would be proud.”
Covering almost 200 years of heritage, the string of comedians will recount 12 stories across six episodes, from cannibal convicts to female indigenous bush rangers, and the first Miss Australia to the country’s darkest political moment – the dismissal of Prime Minister Gough Whitlam.
Here, facts collide with fantasy and like every Aussie knows, the truth never gets in the way of a good yarn.
Drunk History joins Season Two of How To Stay Married which dropped yesterday exclusively on 10 Play.
