Season 1

Drunk History is an American television comedy series based on the Funny or Die web series created by Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner in which each episode an inebriated narrator struggles to recount an event from American history, while actors enact the narrator's anecdote, lip synching any dialogue.

The series premiered in the USA on Comedy Central on 9 July, 2013.

Drunk History premiered in South Africa on DStv's Comedy Central channel on Monday 4 November 2013, at 21h20. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are eight episodes in the first season.

Synopsis

Drunk History is a weekly, half-hour series where historical reenactments by A-list talent are presented by inebriated storytellers. Raise your glass and get ready for the most fun you'll ever have with history!

Each episode of Drunk History takes 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.

Providing a unique take on the familiar and less familiar people and events from America's great past are narrators including Kyle Kinane, Jen Kirkman, Natasha Leggero and Jenny Slate, who stumble and slur their way through profiles on figures such as Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders, Patty Hearst, Lewis and Clark, Billy the Kid, and Edwin and John Wilkes Booth.

They also tackle seminal moments like The Alamo, Watergate, the Scopes Monkey Trial, and the Haymarket Riot; and stories such as J. Edgar Hoover's crusade against Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Harry Houdini's friendship turned rivalry with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the breakfast creation that led to the Kellogg Brothers' falling out, and the rise and fall of Al Capone.

Reenactments of the fearless and inebriated narrators' often confused, always hilarious, account of events are performed by all-star calibre casts including Jack Black, Lisa Bonet, Connie Britton, Michael Cera, Terry Crews, Andy Daly, Nathan Fielder, Will Forte, Dave Grohl, Bill Hader, Tony Hale, Ben Hoffman, Jake Johnson, Jack McBrayer, Stephen M erchant, Kevin Nealon, Bob Odenkirk, Chris Parnell, Aubrey Plaza, Rob Riggle, Jason Ritter, Winona Ryder, Horatio Sanz, Will Sasso, Jason Schwartzman, Adam Scott, Bradley Whitford, Kristen Wiig, Fred Willard, Luke Wilson and Owen Wilson.

Created for television by Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner, Drunk History is produced by Gary Sanchez Productions and executive produced by Waters and Konner, along with Gary Sanchez Productions' Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Chris Henchy and Owen Burke.

Seth Cohen and Ian Friedman are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
