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.
