From the minds of the guys who brought you A Very Die Hard Christmas comes a new show about the cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems: alcohol.The (Almost) Complete and (Mostly) Accurate History of Alcohol tells the story of alcohol’s impact on our culture, from the first Olympics all the way up to what a disaster the North Loop can become on a Thursday night. Josh Carson, the show’s co-creator, says that this “hysterical historical” tells a lot of incredible drinking stories, but that one is greater than the rest. “The greatest drinking story ever told is your own,” he says. “When we were working on ideas for a new show, we realized that alcohol is one thing that nearly everyone has in common.” With a cast full of BNW alumni, the production is likely to make you hurt from the inside, both from laughter and liver failure.
