Live & Onstage
Mon, Apr 26 / 9:30 / Kabuki / DRUN26K
Rising comedic writer/actor Derek Waters headlines this night of mild debauchery, featuring several of his short films including installments from the ridiculously popular Drunk History series—for which actors such as Will Ferrell, Don Cheadle, John C. Reilly reenact videotaped recountings of historical events by sloshed storytellers. Simple, popular, dead-wrong, just like so many things we adore. The program also includes short film collaborations between Bob Odenkirk (Mr. Show) and Waters, including the hilarious The Pity Card from the series Derek and Simon, starring Waters and Simon Helberg (The Big Bang Theory) and featuring an appearance by the always disturbing Zach Galifianakis. Interspersed with these and other shorts will be conversation between Waters and Brent Hoff, editor of Wholphin, the quarterly DVD magazine of short films published by McSweeney’s in San Francisco. Hoff, former science editor for McSweeney’s and a kindred spirit in energy and wit, provides the perfect sounding board for Waters’ ideas and schemes. Bursts of audience participation and, no doubt, steady drinking will round out the evening.
