You will not believe the caliber of stars that lend their work to this Internet series called “Drunk History”. This episode features John C. Reilly and Crispin Glover as Tesla and Edison. BE WARNED! You must think that vomiting in a toilet while pontificating on the life and contributions of Nikola Tesla is funny to enjoy this video.

My favorite part...Tesla on Edison "Tesla was horrified- he'd be like, 'this is AWFUL- I am inventing electricity and you look like an asshole- you look like a @!%*ing idiot!' hehehehe

I'm glad you found it funny.  Grin I have an Idiocracy - Team America sense of humor and I know that many find any jokes surrounding a person with such a tragic history tasteless.

I'm sure part of Tesla's charm was his sense of humor. It is not reflected in his writings but if Mark Twain found him an interesting companion, I'm sure the guy was fun and entertaining.

Thanks so much for writing!

I was ecstatic to see anything at all about Tesla on tv.  The lack of education about Tesla is ridiculous and utterly dumbfounding.  The drunken history is pretty close to the truth.  I'll gladly accept that as some sort of discombobulated educational teaser for the general public.  At the very least, it may initiate viewers to investigate, learn, and appreciate the work of Tesla.
