Drunk Education

Welcome to Drunk Ed, the world’s premier source of drunk knowledge since 2013. Interested in a close reading of “The Boys Are Back in Town” as a text on modern masculinity, the secret history of UFO-obsessed communists, or the corner of the internet filled with evangelical Christian memes about climate change presaging the Rapture? We’ve got you covered. Want to see what one of our shows is like? Check out this film from a recent celebration of Carly Rae Jepsen’s classic album E•MO•TION.

Upcoming Events

A Drunk Education History of Comedy

January 24 / 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST
Stand Up NY

Drunk Education (the show formerly known as Drunk TED Talks and once described by NPR’s Morning Edition as “a real thing”) is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: writers/comics/artists make slideshows about stuff they’re really into, get drunk, and deliver them. Whether it’s the horniness of St. Augustine, the history of mansplaining relayed through the plot of Love, Actually, or the way teen girl organizers could have prevented the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, Drunk Ed has you covered. This time, Drunk Ed takes on the history of comedy, with talks by Jo Firestone, Ziwe Fumudoh, and Josh Rabinowitz.

Roast of Literary Men

January 31 / 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe

Throughout history, “great men” have written some of our most important works—histories, novels, poems, plays—but are they really all that great? Drunk Education (the event formerly known as Drunk TED Talks) returns to poke holes and deflate the egos of even more writer men. Some roasts will be loving, some will be scathing, but no one will escape untouched.
