NEW YORK, September 21, 2016 – To paraphrase Napoleon Bonaparte, “History is the version of past events that people have agreed upon…and then there’s the version of the inebriated.” The Emmy®-nominated Comedy Central series “Drunk History” returns for a 10-episode fourth season on Tuesday, September 27 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, following an all-new “Tosh.0.” Fans can catch up on season three on the Comedy Central App and at cc.com/drunk.
In the season premiere, Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner bring viewers the appropriately themed episode “Great Escapes,” offering intoxicated versions of Devil’s Island, The Titanic and Timothy Leary’s prison escape. Steve Berg narrates William Willis’s (Thomas Middleditch) expedition to Devil’s Island to save Bernard Carnot (Derek Waters) and on the way encounters island local Jules (Ron Funches). Doug Jones recounts baker Charles Joughin’s (Chris Parnell) inebriated survival from the sinking of the Titanic; and Duncan Trussell explains how psychologist Timothy Leary (Thomas Lennon) escaped from prison.
