Mamrie Lillian Hart (born September 22, 1983) known on YouTube as You Deserve A Drink is an American YouTube Celebrity, comedienne, actress, writer, and performer. She gained popularity in mid-2009 through her online YouTube show. She also co-wrote, co-produced and co-starred in the 2014 film Camp Takota.
Mamrie joined YouTube on April 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. The videos contain pop culture references, sexual innuendo and numerous puns, and occasionally she makes drinks for celebrities that she feels deserve a drink. Once the drink is finished, Mamrie then encourages viewers to make the cocktail themselves 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.
Mamrie periodically collaborates with other YouTube personalities, such as Grace Helbig, Tyler Oakley, and Flula Borg. She has also performed in videos by other YouTube entities like Rainn Wilson's Soul Pancake, stars in Sing-A-Gram on My Damn Channel, and Multi-break Up with TheFineBros.
On May 7, 2013, Mamrie introduced her audience to her second YouTube channel, Mametown, on her Tumblr page. Prior to this, the account did not contain any videos despite being created back in 2009. Hart aims to upload videos unrelated to YDAD. She initially requested viewers to recommend what she should post on the channel. Since then she has uploaded many unique videos that range from wacky characters, to introducing her dog Beanz Hart, to vlogging.
On July 1, 2014, Mamrie and Grace Helbig premiered footage of their travel web show #HeyUSA on the YouTube channel Astronauts Wanted. On October 15, 2014 eight full-length episodes were posted to Conde Nast Entertainment's digital platform The Scene. A second season of #HeyUSA is set for release April 16, 2015, this time with special guest hosts instead of Grace Helbig. Viewers have selected the following cohosts: Colleen Ballinger, Flula Borg, Kingsley, Jenna Marbles, and Tyler Oakley. Helbig will select the location to which Hart and her co-host will travel for each episode.
