Created for television by Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner, hosted by Waters and directed by Konner, each episode of "Drunk History" will take viewers on a tour of cities across America, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, San Francisco, and the Wild West.

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.

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.

SUMMER IS ABOUT TO HEAT UP! ANTHONY JESELNIK RETURNS IN THE SECOND SEASON PREMIERE OF "THE JESELNIK OFFENSIVE" ON JULY 9 AT 10:30 P.M. ET/PT

Fans Can Visit cc.com for Exclusive Video Content and Behind-The-Scenes Footage

NEW YORK, June 25, 2013 - Anthony Jeselnik is back and ready to take on more bizarre and head-turning headlines in the second season premiere of his weekly COMEDY CENTRAL half-hour series, "The Jeselnik Offensive." The eight episode season premieres on Tuesday, July 9 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, following the series premiere of "Drunk History." Fellow comedians Amy Schumer and Jim Norton will join Anthony as his first guest panelists.

"The Jeselnik Offensive" unleashes Jeselnik's wicked take on must-see news ripped from the headlines of Gawker, Reddit and the places we all troll for the darker, more shocking and lurid stories. Recurring segments include "Sacred Cow," during which Jeselnik takes on topics too sensitive to make a joke about, and then makes a bunch of jokes about, such as "drinking and driving" and "necrophilia," both planned for this season. New audience-participation games, like last season's "Search and Destroy," "Black Name Spelling Bee" and "Which Kind of Asian is This?," debut along with the new segment "Where is Your God Now?" which asks different religious groups what offends them and why.

Each episode also features two guest panelists to further bash pop culture and gleefully rip the veil of sanctity from off-limit topics in segments like "Best Worst Thing" and "Latino Voices," as well as making Twitter a better place with "Defending Your Tweet." Upcoming panelists for the second season include Eric Andre, Doug Benson, Rob Huebel, Pete Holmes, David Koechner, Nick Kroll, Marc Maron,

T.J. Miller, John Mulaney, Kumail Nanjiani, Jim Norton, Adam Pally, Joan Rivers, Amy Schumer and Casey Wilson.

"The Jeselnik Offensive" Web site features show clips, exclusive video, and behind-the-scenes action, and Jeselnik will live tweet each week on show nights (@AnthonyJeselnik). "The Jeselnik Offensive" Facebook page will be updated daily throughout the season and fans can follow the show's tumblr at thejeselnikoffensive.tumblr.com for additional show info and an inside look into Jeselnik's mind.

Episodes of "The Jeselnik Offensive" will be available in SD and HD the day after air on iTunes, Xbox Video, Amazon Instant Video, Sony PlayStation Store, Vudu and Samsung Media Hub.

"The Jeselnik Offensive" is executive produced by Jeselnik, head writer Tom Johnson, Krysia Plonka and Mosaic's Christie Smith. Jim Sharp and Monika Zielinska are the Executives in Charge of Production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
