NEW YORK, June 6, 2013 – Raise your glass and get ready for the most fun you’ll ever have with history!  Based on the award-winning and wildly popular web series, “Drunk History,” a new half-hour series, pairs inebriated storytellers with A-list talent to reenact great moments in history.  COMEDY CENTRAL premieres the first of eight all-new episodes on Tuesday, July 9 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the second season premiere of “The Jeselnik Offensive.”

Created for television by Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner, hosted by Waters and directed by Konner, each episode of “Drunk History” will take viewers and students of history (the late night cramming/Cliff Notes version) on a tour of cities across America, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and the Wild West, to explore their rich culture and history via historical reenactments, with a twist…of lime.

    At the very least it’s different…at best it could help educate it’s viewers.

    I want to know if it’s actually accurate or very funny b4 watching it though.

    Well it says it’s based on a web series, so I’m sure if you check that out, it will be similar to the TV show

    @Anna Bones Clarkwood

    Check it out on YouTube. (be careful though, there are a lot of cheap imitations. You know you have the real thing if it has actual famous actors in it.)

    It is informative to a point but not the best way to learn history since the story is being told by someone who is really quite drunk (and they like to add in their own commentary).

    As for funny, to each his own but I thought it was pretty hilarious.
