The series, which taught us that history can be fun, is returning to Comedy Central on Tuesday, 1 September, with season 3.
Starting with inebriated accounts of The Bone Wars, The Balloon Corps and The Big Bang, "Drunk History" will take us through history with the help of seasoned comedians like Christopher Meloni, Tony Hale, Greg Kinnear, Stephen Merchant, Jenny Slate, Justin Long, Will Ferrell, Jack Black and many others.
Director and first host of "Drunk History" season 3, Derek Waters, will first take us on a historical journey to New Jersey, after which Mark Proksch will narrate the rivalry of fossil-hunters Othniel Marsh (Christopher Meloni) and Edward Cope (Tony Hale). Thaddue Lose (Gre Kinnear) will appear with President Abraham Lincoln (Stephen Merchant), as Tess Lynch drunkenly recounts the former's contributions to America's first air force.
Season 3 episode 1 of "Drunk History" will also feature Jenny Slate and her dog. While the latter enjoys calming pats from his human, Jenny will explain how scientists Arno Penzians (Justin Long) and Robert Wilson (Jason Ritter) used an abandoned antenna to hear the sounds from outer space.
