BOTTOMS UP! COMEDY CENTRAL'S(R) "DRUNK HISTORY" PREMIERES TUESDAY, JULY 9 AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT

A-List Roster of Stars Reenact History through the Filter of Inebriated Storytellers Throughout Series' All-New Episodes

NEW YORK, June 6, 2013 - Raise your glass and get ready for the most fun you'll ever have with history! Based on the award-winning and wildly popular web series, "Drunk History," a new half-hour series, pairs inebriated storytellers with A-list talent to reenact great moments in history. COMEDY CENTRAL premieres the first of eight all-new episodes on Tuesday, July 9 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the second season premiere of "The Jeselnik Offensive."

Created for television by Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner, hosted by Waters and directed by Konner, each episode of "Drunk History" will take 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 our country's great past are narrators including Kyle Kinane, Jen Kirkman, Natasha Leggero, and Jenny Slate, who will 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; 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 will be performed by all-star caliber 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.
