My Drunk Kitchen is a cooking show and comedy series of short videos created and posted on YouTube by Hannah "Harto" Hart.[1][2] The series features Hart, a 29-year-old 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, catchphrases, and the use of jump cut editing.[3][4][5]

Hannah's show is now set to be aired on TV for the first time as part of The Food Network. There is no official title for this show as of yet.[6]
