Drunk History is an American television comedy series produced by Comedy Central, based on the Funny or Die web series created by Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner in 2007. In each episode, an inebriated narrator, who is played by a comedian joined by host Waters, struggles to recount an event from history, while actors enact the narrator's anecdotes and also lip sync the dialogue.
The series premiered on Comedy Central on July 9, 2013, and its second season premiered on July 1, 2014. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are among the show's executive producers.
In addition to creator Derek Waters and celebrity guest stars, the show's additional characters are played by regulars Bennie Arthur, Tim Baltz, Mort Burke, Sarah Burns, Maria Blasucci, Craig Cackowski, Michael Cassady, Michael Coleman, Tymberlee Hill, Adam Nee, and Jeremy J. Tutson.
On January 13, 2017, Comedy Central renewed the show for a fifth season, which is set to premiere later in 2017.
