Comedy Central: Drunk History and Another Period
Come learn about the history of Drunk History! Derek Waters (co-creator/host/director) and Jeremy Konner (co-creator/director) walk you through how this historically accurate, yet slightly slurred show works to portray little-known events and figures in history from the perspective of an intoxicated narrator. From humble beginnings as a digital series to two seasons on Comedy Central, with season 3 ready to premiere on September 1, Derek and Jeremy have plenty of stories to tell from the making of the show, including an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming new season. The panel will include Taran Killam (SNL), who has guest starred on all three seasons of the show, along with other guest stars and narrators. There will be a Q&A, an interactive live event, and plenty more fun and debauchery as only Drunk Historycan create. Following that, the party continues with a look at Comedy Central's new series, Another Period, premiering Tuesday, June 23. The turn-of-the-century historical and satirical scripted series follows the insanely ridiculous and debaucherous life of the Bellacourts, who have more servants than relatives and whose days are filled with money, sex, drugs, and more money. Another Period centers on the Bellacourt sisters, Lillian (Natasha Leggero) and Beatrice (Riki Lindhome), who only care about being rich and becoming super famous. Series creators and stars Natasha and Riki lead an all-star cast, including Michael Ian Black, David Wain, Christina Hendricks, Jason Ritter, and Paget Brewster. Get an exclusive look at Comedy Central's latest hit with the stars and other guests as they discuss their new show with moderator and writer Moshe Kasher.
