Three Cheers for Three Sheets

I'm back to promote a great show that got a second life. The show is called Three Sheets and it used to be on the now defunct network MOJO. Three Sheets boils down to this, Zane Lamprey, a very funny guy with an iron liver, travels around the World visiting countries for the express purpose of introducing his audience to the local drinking customs. He give you some neat information about the place he's visiting and then proceeds to drink their local spirits with a local guide all the while making quippy jokes and educating people.

The show has a devoted following (like Rachel and me) which has resulted in Zane continuing inside jokes (which are explained to the uninitiated) and the resulting drinking game. I guarantee you will enjoy this show if you like alcohol and/or travel. In fact, you will find yourself wanting to visit these places and marvel at how Zane has the best job in the world.

At the end of each show, Zane shows you the aftereffects of his imbibing. He usually looks like hell and that's the beauty. He doesn't show himself looking great, he's honest with how shitty he feels. Following that, he then tries the local hangover cure, usually to some comedic effect.

I think my favorite part of the show is how he nice and appreciative he is to his hosts. He can be outlandish and a jokester but you can tell he makes fast friends and the people are glad he came.

So, please check out Three Sheets on Fine Living Network starting Monday, July 20th. Here's his site, enjoy.

Hmm, I don't have Mojo or the Fine Living Network (whatever the hell that is) but I do have supreme web search skills, so game on! I'm really looking forward to checking this show out. Thanks for the heads up.

If he hasn't already been, Iceland is a must for him. their beverages of choice are jacked!

He did go to Iceland I believe. If you go to his website they have the shows from the first 3 seasons online. You'll love it.
