“History flows forward on rivers of beer” – Anonymous
The Charleston-centered episode of Comedy Central’s Drunk History airs tonight at 10 pm. Each historical tale told during tonight’s show will have a Holy City tie-in.
Each episode of Drunk History features three inebriated narrators attempting to tell separate stories from American history, while actors lip sync their way through the dialog.
Tonight’s show will feature drunken retellings of the following stories:
- SC Representative Preston Brooks uses a cane to pummel Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner on the Senate floor
- Judge J. Waties Waring helps end segregation in schools
- Robert Smalls, a slave living in Charleston, makes off with the CSS Planter, a Confederate warship
The episode will feature actors Patton Oswalt, Johnny Knoxville, Busy Philipps, and Brandon T. Jackson.
