Review: Drinking Made Easy with Zane Lamprey

I’ve written more than a few times about Three Sheets with Zane Lamprey (all four season are available in full on Hulu!). Zane travels the world learning about local alcohol and drinking customs. It’s a good mix of education and comedy. He’s currently finishing up a nationwide tour for a new show called “Drinking Made Easy” which will air on HDNet. Tyla, Tim, Chelsea, Andy, Stephanie and I bought tickets to see the show.

We really didn’t know what to expect, but it turned out to be a fun night. Zane brought Marc Ryan (comedian), Steve McKenna, and a lifesize Pleepleus on stage for what was basically a comedy/education show. Zane went through some of the basics of different types of alcohol, sabred a champagne bottle, told stories, and watched in awe with the rest of us as Steve chugged six beers from a large mug (after he had just been on stage and chugged three bottles individually.)

Travel Channel has recently started running their whole catalog of old shows and it remains to be seen if they’ll pick up a new season. I’m looking forward to checking out Drinking Made Easy as long as it’s on Hulu since I don’t get HDNet.
