Watch Drunk History

In this comedy series, celebrities try their best to explain important historical events, but their often already flimsy grasp of history is complicated by the fact that they're required to drink heavily while they're explaining. The wackiness is augmented by less-than-dramatic re-enactments of the historical events.
