The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills will take visitors on a trip through the hilarious world of Comedy Central’s wildly popular television show Drunk History, when it unveils the Museum of Drunk History. The exclusive exhibit will open on January 9, 2019, and run through January 20. Admission is free and open to the public.
Based on the popular web series, Drunk History is the liquored-up narration of our nation’s history. Host Derek Waters, along with an ever-changing cast of actors and comedians, travels across the country to present the rich tales that every city in this land has to offer. Booze helps bring out the truth. It’s just that sometimes the truth is a little incoherent.
“For five seasons Drunk History has provided viewers with a humorous take on our glorious past,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “We’re thrilled visitors to the Paley Center will have the opportunity to experience season six through this original and fun exhibit.”
Drunk History fans are constantly talking about their favorite moments from the show and now Comedy Central is giving them the opportunity to experience them in person at the Museum of Drunk History. They’ve created intricate dioramas that represent each episode of the new season of Drunk History, premiering January 15 at 10:00 pm. Scenes include “The Creation of Frankenstein,” “The Occupation of Alcatraz,” and “Murderess Row”—the story that inspired the movie Chicago. The dioramas are large in detail—keep an eye out for Easter eggs!
“It’s great to finally be in a museum,” said Drunk History host, Derek Waters.
Every year the Paley Center presents exhibits that capture the unique combination of artistry and entertainment, and give visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process that brings their favorite television programs to life. These immersive exhibits are free and open to the public.
