Tasty News: New Seasons of DRUNK HISTORY & CORPORATE Premiere Tonight on Comedy Central
Are you ready for more historical tales and corporate intrigue TONIGHT? Then look no further than the premieres of BRAND NEW seasons of DRUNK HISTORY and CORPORATE at Comedy Central. It will be a whopping SIXTH season for the show that makes spirits and historical education it’s business. For newbies, Drunk History, based on the Funny or Die web series created by Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner in ’07, makes inebriated narrators it’s stars, who drunkenly and lovingly recount historical events for the viewer, as actors enact the narrator’s story and words. The all-new episode titled “Are You Afraid of the Drunk?” will be devoted entirely to a parody of “Are You Afraid of the Dark” called “Are You Afraid of the Drunk.” Look forward to appearances from stars Evan Rachel Wood as Mary Shelley, Elijah Wood as Percy Shelley, Seth Rogen as Dr. Frankenstein, Will Ferrell as Frankenstein’s Monster and Jack McBrayer as Lord Byron. The always funny and wickedly adorable Rich Fulcher will be narrator of the Frankenstein themed episode. I hope you are not scared of some b&w 35mm film moments and just how Mary Shelley’s horror classic came to be!
Following the Drunk History premiere, we will be treated to the SECOND season of the dark workplace comedy CORPORATE, created by Pat Bishop, Matt Ingebretson, and Jake Weisman. I was lucky enough to binge the season (press perks) and I can confidently say that each episode just gets increasingly more addictive. To echo creator Ingebretson’s sentiment, “…Watch it live, DVR it, steal your dad’s cable password, buy it on amazon, steal it from the internet, watch it through your neighbor’s window, break into your neighbor’s house, steal their belongings, etc.” He does not exaggerate! This season expect 10-episodes of Hampton DeVille workplace meltdowns and maleficence featuring guest stars Kyra Sedgwick, Elizabeth Perkins, Kristen Schaal, Sasheer Zamata, Baron Vaughn and Andy Richter. The first episode, “The One Who’s There,” examines that concept of the “proximity crush.” You know those feels you get when you spend a significant amount of time around a co-worker positioned close to your person. Well, Matt’s got it bad and that’s not necessarily good. Will he maintain that bond with the woman who’s name he can’t remember or replace her with another crush? Either way, it makes for delicious television. WATCH!
