'Drunk History' Picked Up By Comedy Central
The hit web series Drunk History, created by Derek Waters, written by Jeremy Konner, and produced by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Gary Sanchez Productions, will soon appear on Comedy Central. Living up to its namesake, Drunk History features a drunk individual who retells a historical event to the best of his or her ability, and celebrities, such as Ryan Gosling, Don Cheadle and Jack Black, reenact the events according to their storyteller’s rendition.
“Will and I have always believed booze brings out truth,” McKay said in a statement. “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.”
Comedy Central signed Drunk History up for an eight-episode run, as well as Workaholics for a fourth and fifth season, Deadline reports. Drunk History will begin airing this summer on Comedy Central.
The following sketch was awarded The Jury Prize for Best American Short Film at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
