Drunk History

Tribeca TV

World Premiere



Based on the popular web series, Drunk History presents the liquored-up narrative of our nation's history. Host Derek Waters, along with a rotating cast of actors and comedians, travels across the country to uncover the rich tales that every city in the land has to offer. Booze helps bring out the truth—it’s just that, sometimes, the truth is a little incoherent.

After the screening: A conversation with co-creator, director, and host Derek Waters, co-creator and director Jeremy Konner, and other special guests. Each screening ticket provides access to two (2) complimentary drink tickets. Moderated by Josh Charles.
