History with a flare.

Informative and clever, these guys love a good story and know how to tell it! Their playful dynamic and enthusiasm for history really make for an outrageous history lesson. Looking forward to the next one as always.

Fractural history 😪

Over simplified story telling. Entertaining but not historically correct. They copy what they read and over simplify. Very staged. I would appreciate it if they would really report correct history. Too many puns and not enough real history. Take more time to get the history correct. Great entertainers! Still like the show even if the history is weak. Favorite show was about neon signs.

Love this!

I’ve been listening to the Bowery Boys for years and they always make my day. They have a real passion for New York and do a fantastic job researching their subject matter.
