A Comedy Central TV series 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.

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.
