Geek Of The Week: Hannah Hart

Hannah Hart is an American Internet personality, comedian, author, and actress. She is best known for starring in My Drunk Kitchen, a weekly series on YouTube in which she cooks something while intoxicated. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend taking a look at it. MDK is one of my absolute favorite YouTube shows, and if you haven’t seen it make a bee line to My Harto. Apart from her main channel, she also runs a second channel where she talks about life in general and gives her opinions on various topics. She co-produced and starred in the independent comedy film Camp Takota, released in 2014. She wrote a parody cookbook which was a New York Times bestseller for five weeks in August–September 2014.

My Drunk Kitchen traces its beginning to March 2011, when Hart was at her sister’s home, chatting with a friend over webcam. Hart used her Macintosh computer to record herself drinking wine while attempting to make a grilled cheese sandwich without any cheese.[6] Hart uploaded the video to YouTube as My Drunk Kitchen.[4] Within a few days the video had accumulated 100,000 hits. Viewers began asking for another “episode” of the video, and Hart complied with more recordings. To establish the initial upload as the first episode of a series, she renamed it “Butter Yo Shit.” By July 2011, My Drunk Kitchen had gathered 800,000 hits, earning Hart a YouTube partnership. As i said I am a big fan of her show, and i can’t believe it has taken me this long to make her Geek of the Week!
