“Drunk History” filmmakers talk to The Sound of Young America

You're going to see Jen Kirkman get drunk tonight on HBO and tell her version of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln as part of a new installment of "Drunk History" on Funny or Die Presents, with Don Cheadle and Will Ferrell playing the historical roles in a re-enactment. This comedic film won a short film prize at Sundance, and while at the fest, "Drunk History" co-creators Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner sat down with Jesse Thorn for a special filmed edition of The Sound of Young America. So if you'd like to watch and learn, well, then, do just that. Roll it!

Earlier: Derek Waters explained the concept last year, also to the Maximum Fun gang.
