The Drunken Peasants Podcast , also known simply as DP, is a popular liberal-minded YouTube news and interview show from Columbus, Ohio. The hosts are Ben, TJ, Scotty, and Paul. They like to pick apart the news in a funny and entertaining way, as well as debate various guests, respond to YouTube videos, make fun of stupid ads, and answer questions asked by the community. The show has been on for a short time, but it has already collected a large following and countless inside jokes. The peasants have had arguments with many people, including: a Christian walrus and his posse, a black guy with a corduroy fetish, a schizophrenic Canadian who "exposes evil", a deplorable piece of shit with a math degree, an attention horse, a Reptilian, a psychic/medium/shaman, a doc-dropping kangaroo, and a pro-slavery black person who denies the existence of starving children.Written by
Can't believe I was ever into this crap. Any form of intelligent commentary is ultimately ruined by painfully unfunny, cringe-worthy, and utterly infantile jokes (Ben and Tj are the worst). This isn't a comedy because a comedy actually involves humor. Not to mention that the show's entire fanbase is riddled with either rebellious 13 year old children who think it's cool to be an atheist, or autistic morons who have no opinion of their own and blindly follow these people without even the slightest hint of the idea that they could be wasting their lives (or lack thereof) on podcasts that actually have some kind of resemblance of talent.
But to be fair, like I mentioned above, when they do manage to stop acting like children and actually engage in a serious discussion or comment on idiotic videos, the show actually comes close to being entertaining, ironically making them come off as intelligent people, especially Scotty (who, along with Paul are the least obnoxious of the bunch). That's probably the only time they come off as having actual talent. Other than that, the show is mostly garbage. And believe it or not, there was a time where there were less penis jokes and more intelligent conversations. That's the only reason why I'm not giving this 1-star. They even had the self respect to get rid of the crazy craigslist ad segment.
Another thing I can't stand about the show is when they sometimes bring their obnoxious, cringe inducing fans onto the show. Egghead (stupid name, btw) has to be the worst. The straw that broke the camel's back was when they brought his a*s on second time! That's when I unsubscribed. It really says a lot about your show when even your own fans are unbearable.
In conclusion, the show can be good when it wants to be, but the 'humor' kills it. It's a shame because there was a time I actually enjoyed Tj's work. And to an extent, I still do, but not when he's trying to be funny.
