Drunk History (2013)
Drunk History is an American television comedy series produced by Comedy Central, based on the Funny or Die web series created by Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner in 2007. In each episode, an inebriated narrator struggles to recount an event from American history, while actors enact the narrator’s anecdote, lip syncing any dialog.
The series premiered on Comedy Central in July 2013. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are among the show’s executive producers.
In addition to creator Derek Waters and celebrity guest stars, the show’s additional characters are played by regulars Bennie Arthur, Sarah Burns, Maria Blasucci, Craig Cackowski, Michael Cassady, Tymberlee Hill, Adam Nee, and Jeremy J. Tutson.
Abbi Jacobson, Josh Charles, Amber Tamblyn, Jane Krakowski and Jillian Bell salute Margaret Sanger’s crusade for accessible birth control. Also: the creation of the Kinsey scale; and Gloria Steinem’s undercover work at the Playboy Club.
