I mostly got "indifferent-and-tired"-drunk before I quit. That's one type of drunkeness you didn't mention.

That would fall under the category of "aloof drunk." Jaded, over-it. I didn't talk about alcoholics where the emotional lines get more flattened out... and the ability to deal with a lack of coordination gets better (like sailors used to rough seas).

At one point in my HIGH SCHOOL play we all came back from a party at a HOSPITAL and we all have to act drunk 😂

Do you have anything on the 'Guilt' drunk.

Well sir, THANKS once again for your amazing advice. The show opened last night and at the after party reception everyone came up to me to say I played the most convincing drunk. Your advice/techniques was right on the money. I focused on keeping the level of consistency and the performance was congruent. I am trying to get a video of it to show you. THANKS!!!

(sorry it's taken so long to reply but...) If "Mischief" is your favorite movie of all time I'm guessing it's probably got more to do with Kelly Preston than the quality of my work in the film. Thanks, though.

You are more than welcome. Maintain your consistent level of intoxication with all those symptoms and nail the small details. Break a leg!

I am preparing to play Sidney Redlitch in Bell, Book and Candle and found the information you provided to be pure gold. Thank you for posting. I also subscribed to your channel. THANKS!

@ShroudedFury If you watch Part 2 I have some stuff there on how to talk drunk. Mostly it's keeping a relaxed mouth, like it's numb from novacaine, and then over articulating. You can mess up on certain difficult words, planned from looking at the text (a little tricky because you risk looking fake doing this).

Any tips on how to talk as though you were drunk?
