Watch: Drunk History Stumbles Over Chicago Events

Actor Joe Lo Truglio portrays Al Capone, "syphilitic moron."

We loved "Drunk History" when it was a little YouTube series years ago, and we're thrilled to see Drunk History return as a grown-up TV series on Comedy Central. If you're not familiar, here's the deal: These storytellers studied up on their topic, then they got super drunk and retold the story. The second episode "Chicago" aired July 16, and it featured three vignettes from Chicago history told by three comedians with roots in Chicago.

The stories: Young Abe Lincoln in Chicago (as told by Rich Fulcher); The Haymarket Riot (as told by Kyle Kinane); and Al Capone's syphilis (as told by Tommy Blacha.) Watch the full episode below and tell us what they got wrong.
