Charleston for Morons
The Complete History of Charleston for Morons

Over 300 years of Lowcountry history in 60 minutes!  You have had your entire life to go out and learn about the history of Charleston, but you just have not pulled yourself away from this week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy to do so.  So we are doing it for you.  A comedy history lesson accessible enough for morons to enjoy -- forever answering the hard to ask questions like: can you still perform in black face?  What took Mel Gibson so long to join the Continental Army? 

The Charleston City Paper says the Morons “dazzle the audience with their ignorance.”
