For most people, drinking wine on the job is more of a coping mechanism than a requirement. But People's Choice Award-winning comedian Matt Bellassai does some of his best work drunk. The star of his own web series "To Be Honest" and former Buzzfeed writer/video personality has turned drinking and complaining into an eloquent art form with his weekly inebriated rants on everything from airplane etiquette to summertime to babies. He's currently embarking on a standup tour that will see him telling stories and spouting amusing aspersions all over the country. Before hitting the road, Bellassai stopped by the FWx offices to talk with me about wine, whining, and what's next for the Internet's most lovable misanthrope.
ACS: Your current show "To Be Honest" and your Buzzfeed series "Whine About It" both feature you drinking entire bottles of wine. What do you like to drink that's not wine?
MB: My go-to drink is whiskey on the rocks, which I at some point convinced myself was the healthiest option because you don't have to add any mixers to it and it's just straight alcohol, and low calorie, which is absolutely untrue.
