Comedy Central has put the first episode of Drunk History online over two weeks before its July 9 premiere, and if you ever wanted to see Adam Scott as John Wilkes Booth, Bob Odenkirk as Richard Nixon, Nathan Fielder as Robert Woodward, Jack Black as Elvis, and Dave Grohl as one of Elvis’s cronies, all lip-synching along to the wildly inebriated historical ramblings of comedians, then this is the show for you. Or, to put it more succinctly, this is probably the show for you.
Anyway, the video isn’t embeddable so you have to watch it at the link up there in the first paragraph, which is a little infuriating, I guess. But on the bright side it does give me more space to post one of the original Funny or Die videos that this new show is based on, featuring Jen Kirkman drinking an absurd amount of wine and talking about Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglas, and slavery. If any of the segments on the TV show live up to this one, I’ll consider it a resounding success.
