Last month, Comedy Central’s wildly popular series, Drunk History covered 3 aspects of Chicago history: Abraham Lincoln, Al Capone (a syphilitic moron!) and the Haymarket Riots.
For those unfamiliar with DH, various comedians get drunk and then attempt to recount specific historical events. Actors then reenact the events in the voice of the drunk storyteller. Hilarity ensues.
Check out Chicago native, Ike Barinholtz, portray August Spies in this funny DH short about the infamous clash between laborers and police.
