Based on the Funny or Die web television series, the Drunk History TV show stumbled its way onto Comedy Central in 2013, feeling no pain — at least not until the morning after. In its
fifth season, is the concept still buzz-worthy enough to keep the audience thirsty for more? Will Drunk History be cancelled or renewed for season six, or just wind up in rehab? Stay tuned.
From creators Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner, each episode of Drunk History features a narrator and guest stars reenacting historical events as recounted by terribly tipsy tellers of tales. From the Alamo and the Scopes Monkey Trial, to Watergate and beyond, no subject is off-limits. Waters hosts the Comedy Central TV series, and frequent players include Bennie Arthur, Craig Cackowski, Maria Biasucci, Mort Burke, Michael Coleman, Aasha Davis, Tim Baltz, J.T. Palmer, Tymberlee Hill, Pernilla Nylander, Rich Fulcher, and Craig Anstett. In season five, expect appearances by Mandy Moore, Tiffany Haddish, Jack McBrayer, Colin Hanks, Paget Brewster, Evan Rachel Wood, Alexander Skarsgård, Vanessa Bayer, Kat Dennings, Vanessa Hudgens, and more.
