A review of my Drunk History Episode
Season three so far has really been all about the closers. Every episode this season has ended on its strongest retelling, and “New Orleans” is no exception, closing out the show with Daryl Johnson, who picks Sazeracs, a local New Orleans absinthe-based cocktail as his poison. “Sazeracs do something special,” he warns Derek Waters. On purely a narrative level, Johnson’s retelling of Louis Armstrong’s early years is definitely the most engaging story of the episode.
