My Drunk Kitchen is a cooking show and comedy series of short videos created and posted on YouTube by content creator Hannah Hart[1][2] beginning in March 2011.[3] The series features Hart, a San Franciscan proofreader living in Los Angeles, typically attempting to cook or bake various dishes, or otherwise engaging in some food-related activity, all while imbibing large quantities of alcoholic beverages.[1] Most episodes have their own recipe, and occasionally a corresponding beverage. The series has been praised for its drunk humor, quotable catchphrases, and use of jump cut editing.[4][5][6] Hart's YouTube channel has 2.4 million subscribers.[7]
