Comedy Central has commissioned UK version of its US show Drunk History from Tiger Aspect.

The Viacom-owned channel has ordered an initial series of eight episodes, following a pilot commission.
 
Drunk History features comedians getting very drunk and telling a true historical story they are passionate about. As they narrate these stories, slurred word for slurred word, well-known actors, celebrities and other comedians act out these new, rather blurry versions of history. Johnny Vegas, Ralf Little, Russell Kane, Joe Lycett, Russell Tovey,  Rob Beckett, Alex Horne and James Acaster have all signed to appear in the series, with Jimmy Carr providing the voice over.
 
Lourdes Diaz, Vice President, head of global production and development, Comedy Central International said, “I’m excited that we have green lit series production for Drunk History. I know our UK audience is going love it, after all, it combines two things the nation holds dear to its heart…drinking and history!”
 
The executive producers for Drunk History are Jill Offman, Lourdes Diaz and Joe McVey for Comedy Central and Andy Brereton for Tiger Aspect.
 
Comedy Central recently announced that series production has begun for multi-camera sitcoms Brotherhood and I Live With Models.
