The idea of observing the drinker lose volubility as vivaciousness increases is not the discovery of youtube circa 2003. The hilarious descent into stupor is an old nightclub bit at least as famous as Fay McKay’s Vegas routine “The 12 Drinks of Christmas.” Yeah it goes on forever, but do you feel bad for laughing at her incapacity?
Less successfully with the same formula is Frankie Ford. He takes forever to get going and even longer to get funny.
Danny McMaster applies a bit of the old Australian on his adaptation. He slushes right away, or is that his Ozzie accent?
Jeremy Lion rounds out the Empire with his working class British walrussing, this time with imbibing on stage. Eh wot?
Most fun is Axis of Awesome with “Drunk at Christmas.” Their big band expression that wanders, droops, drawls, and slumps in the corner indecipherably.
