• Will Ferrell may bring Funny Or Die series ‘Drunk History’ to Comedy Central

    Fill up your wine glasses, comedy fans– because the Funny or Die hit web series, Drunk History, may be coming to Comedy Central! The network has ordered a pilot for Drunk History Across America. The tipsy historical reenactment videos, featuring the likes of Will Ferrell, Jim Carey, Jen Kirkman and Zooey Deschanel, would likely transition to television easily, what with its core tradition of an inebriated narrator remembering historical events. The series has more than 15 million views on Funny Or Die, alone.

    The drunken narrators would travel to various parts of the country, interviewing the locals. Ferrell and Adam McKay will executive produce, with creator, Derek Waters and their original director, Jeremey Konner, and Owen Burke. Let’s check out a few of these gems, shall we? Oh, that’s comedian Duncan Trussell pictured above. He’s drunk. You can see him in action in the first video. Enjoy!
