Personal life

Hart was born in New Jersey and went to high school in Boonville, North Carolina. Her father is actor David Hart and her mother is a high school English teacher. She has a brother named David and a sister named Annie.[4] Her parents divorced when she was nine years old.[5] Hart's first name is a tribute to her great grandmother, Lillian Mamrie. Hart earned her Bachelor of Arts in theater from UNC-Chapel Hill. Upon graduation, she moved to New York City to pursue "serious acting."[6]

Career

Cudzoo and the Faggettes

Cudzoo and the Faggettes[7] is a band known for its humorous, innuendo-laden lyrical content and live shows.[8] Mamrie 'Mametown' Hart joined forces with Erin 'E-Bomb' McCarson and Jessica 'J-Train' Bartley and formed a band called Cudzoo & the Faggettes. They came up with Cudzoo in reference to the Kudzu vines that are prevalent in the South where all three women came from.[9] They refer to their own style as a mixture between dirty doo wop and vintage rock. They often perform in New York, although the band is currently on a hiatus because Hart is residing in Los Angeles for the time being. They have released two albums, The Prettiest Girls With The Filthiest Mouths (2009) and Daddy Issues (2012).[10] The most notable singles are "Daddy Issues" and "New York Girls".

YouTube

Hart joined YouTube on June 20, 2009. She began her main channel, You Deserve A Drink (YDAD), on March 13, 2011, where she primarily posts weekly instructional mixology videos, with a unique cocktail presented in each, allowing her to combine her past work experience as a bartender with performing.[11] The videos contain pop culture references, sexual innuendo and numerous puns, and occasionally she makes drinks for celebrities that she feels deserve a drink.[12] Once the drink is finished, Hart encourages viewers to make the cocktail themselves and then rewatch the video, using it as a drinking game wherein the participant takes a drink each time she makes a pun. Her favorite drink is a gin gimlet, straight up.[]

#NoFilter

The film, directed by Chris & Nick Riedell, began shooting in California on August 12, 2013.[27] The film's official trailer was released on December 24, 2013 on Hart's, Helbig's and Hannah's respective main YouTube channels, as well as on the film's official website.[28][29][30][31] On February 5, 2014, an extended trailer was released on Helbig's it'sGrace channel and on the Camp Takota website [31][32]Camp Takota was released via digital download on February 14, 2014.[33][34]

Book

Hart landed a book deal with Plume Books in early January 2014.[38] The book, titled You Deserve a Drink: Boozy Misadventures and Tales of Debauchery was released on May 26, 2015.[39]

About her book, Hart said:

"Each chapter will have its own recipe, so in an ideal world, when you are reading about that time I fell in love with the half-snake, half-man guy and ran off with him to work in the carnival for a summer, you will make the cotton candy martini to drink while you read. Side note: That isn't actually one of my stories. The half-snake, half-man guy was way too good for me."[38]

As to the style, she stated:

"My whole brand of humor is self-deprecation -- about owning your flaws and saying 'Fuck you' to anyone who doesn't like it," she says. "Hopefully that feeling will come across in [this book]. To where if you have a really embarrassing story, embrace it... Every story that I'll tell will lead up to why I am why I am."[40]
