The very first Drunk History in 2007 started with the duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, leaving it uncertain if we’d ever see a retelling from the Hamilton master, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Thankfully, the day has arrived, as a drunk Miranda leads a new all-star retelling of Hamilton’s life with a clip from Monday’s Drunk History.
The latest episode of ‘Drunk History’ arrives just in time for October’s LGBTQ history month with an episode about the Stonewall Riots, and it’s a way more accurate telling than Roland Emmerich’s ‘Stonewall.’
Drunk History has made its way around the block, from web series to Emmy nominations, and Season 4 on Comedy Central may be the most satisfied year yet. Not only do we get a first taste of Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda retelling the famous duel, but the first trailer brings a bevy of celebrities from Elizabeth Olsen to Ronda Rousey.
It was Lin-Manuel Miranda himself who pointed out that the first Drunk History had already chronicled Alexander Hamilton’s rivalry with Aaron Burr, before signing on to Season 4's post-Broadway recreation. Now, Arrested Development alum Alia Shawkat and star Aubrey Plaza have landed the new Hamilton roles, along with other details of the November bow.
We’re all still collectively grieving the major cast members of Hamilton leaving the show behind, but with it, their slow TV takeover has begun. Lin-Manuel Miranda himself will even drop by Drunk History this coming season, re-telling the tale of Alexander Hamilton to boot!
Most of broadcast TV has begun packing it in for the summer, but your old friends on cable and Comedy Central would never let you down. To wit, find out when Key & Peele, Drunk History and the breakout Review come back for new seasons, as well as where to find new comedies from Hannibal Burress and Natasha Leggero!
Comedy Central's adaptation of classic FunnyorDie sketch "Drunk History" exceeded our wildest expectation across its first season, bringing in countless celebrities both to inebriatedly narrate and star in their best recollections of world events. Now that season 2 has been set for a summer 2014 debut, Comedy Central has revealed the full roster of guest stars, including some famous faces from 'The Walking Dead,' 'Friday Night Lights,' 'Game of Thrones' and many, many more.
It's been an otherwise quiet day in the realm of TV news, but Comedy Central certainly seems to have made the most of it. Not only will breakout comedy duo 'Key & Peele' return for a fourth season, but so too will the animated 'Brickleberry' draw itself a third outing and the web series-adapted 'Drunk History' take a second course.
For as much as we've enjoyed the original web incarnation of 'Drunk History,' we're eager to get a look at Comedy Central's longer take on the series before its July 9 debut. Thankfully, our impatient drunk sensibilities won't need to wait that long, as Comedy Central has released the first full episode online to view two weeks ahead of schedule!
The moment we heard Comedy Central would take Will Ferrell's Funny Or Die web series 'Drunk History' to TV, we knew we'd be in for a cavalcade of celebrity guest stars, but perhaps not this many. The network has officially set a July 9 premiere for the web-adapted reenactment series, amid a mammoth list of guest stars that includes everyone from 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig to Winona Ryder and 'The Internship''s Owen Wilson, and that's just to start.
