Second Season of Comedy Central's DRUNK HISTORY to Premiere 7/1
Time to crack open the history books, because America's favorite inebriated storytellers are returning for a second season! Ten episodes of the hit Comedy Central series "Drunk History" begin on Tuesday, July 1 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the second season premiere of "Nathan For You." For fans that want to relive every sloshed moment of season one, all episodes are now available on the Comedy Central App and atcc.com/drunk.
In the season premiere episode, host Derek Waters takes us to Montgomery, Ala., for a look at the city's history, told only the way "Drunk History" can...three sheets to the wind. The all-star cast reenacts the story of Claudette Colvin, the little-known teenager who inspired Rosa Parks' (Lisa Bonet) historic stance; the Joe Louis (Terry Crews) v. Max Schmeling (Tim Heidecker) fights of the late 1930s, featuring 'Weird Al' Yankovic as Hitler; and the history of chemist Percy Julian (Jordan Peele).
