‘Drunk History’: Comedy Central Show to Feature Kristen Wiig, Jack Black and Many More

Drunk History Comedy Central July 9
Funny Or Die

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.

Like the web series, Comedy Central’s ‘Drunk History’ will feature historical reenactments with A-list talent serving as the titular storytellers and drunk narration from Kyle Kinane, Jen Kirkman, Natasha Leggero and Jenny Slate. “Will and I have always believed booze brings out truth,” said Ferrell’s creative partner Adam McKay of the project. “Sometimes that truth involves hitting on airport bar janitors or eating cheese fries at 4 a.m.  But in this case, we hope that truth will shine on our nation’s history.”

Reenacting ‘Drunk History’ over the eight-episode run across American locales will include 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 Merchant, 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.
