Drunk History is a weekly, half-hour series where historical reenactments by A-list talent are presented by inebriated storytellers. Based on the award-winning and wildly popular web series, the show follows the drunken and often incoherent narration of our nation’s history. Host Derek Waters, along with an ever-changing cast of great actors and comedians, travels from town to town across the country, presenting the rich history that every city in this land, both great and small, has to offer. Booze helps bring out the truth of our nation’s history. It’s just that sometimes that truth involves hitting on airport bar janitors or eating cheese fries at 4 a.m.
Comedy Central’s Drunk History announced that it would be coming to Charleston ,
Hunter Boone announced on Charleston Grit where the show intends to conduct interviews, and it looks like the Royal American is the spot for any local Charlestonians who want to get their drunk faces on screen.
The Drunk History crew will be at the Morrison Drive bar on January 16 from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. conducting interviews for the second season of the show. If you want your chance to be on camera, you should probably show up before 8 p.m. Boone suggested that the crew may close an area to conduct the interviews, meaning you could not make the cut if you stroll up at midnight or after the area has been closed off.
Get you history stories straight and practice talking out of your shitfaced asses.
Drunk History creator, Derek Waters, has been announcing via Twitter and Facebook the locations where the show will be shooting across the US for Season 2, and, just over a week ago, he updated that the show is planning to shoot in Charleston.
If you’re interested in being on camera, make sure to arrive before 8 o’clock. The crew may or may not close off an area at a certain point before shooting.
Now let’s all do what Charlestonians are best at doing, getting drunk, talking history, and acting like we all know what we’re talking about.
