The BEST episodes of Drunk History (UK)

Every episode of Drunk History (UK) ever, ranked from best to worst by thousands of votes from fans of the show. The best episodes of Drunk History (UK)!

Top UK comedians relate their favourite historical stories while getting absolutely bladdered on a mixture of beers, wines and spirits. Their slurred versions of history are then acted out, word for word, by a host of well-known actors, celebrities and comedians including Johnny Vegas, Russell Kane, Joe Lycett, Rob Beckett, Alex Horne and James Acaster. Luckily, Jimmy Carr is on voice-over duties to restore some order if the drinking sessions get out of hand.
