Season 2 of 'Drunk History' Has Some Seriously Awesome Lady Guest Stars
Sit back and relax because you're about to read a hefty list of names that all have one hysterical thing in common: Season 2 of Comedy Central's Drunk History . Are you ready? (Good.) In the words of the always loud Billy Eichner, away... we... go! David Cross, Jesse Plemons, Charlie Day, Tony Hale, Joe Lo Truglio, Chris Parnell, Ken Marino, Jason Ritter, Paul Scheer, Terry Crews, Zach Gilford, Matt Walsh, Patton Oswalt, Jordan Peele, Jerry O' Connell, Johnny Knoxville, Stephen Merchant, John Lithgow, Nick Kroll, Jack Black, Jack McBrayer, Jason Mantzoukas, Jon Daly, Jaleel White, Brett Gelman, Bobby Moynihan, Nathan Fielder, Ken Marino, Martin Starr, "Weird Al" Yankovic, and, finally, Jason Momoa (you know, Daenerys Targaryen's late-husband Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones). That's right — according to Entertainment Weekly, every single one of those men are slated to appear (or narrate) on Drunk History . But, wait, where are all the ladies at?
Don't worry, we didn't forget about them — we're just saving the best for last. The second season of Comedy Central's webseries-turned-TV-show is back for another round of historical (and seriously drunken) shenanigans, and man, oh, man is the female line-up looking extra fine. We basically can't contain our comedy-nerd excitement for the amount of laughter these ladies are going to induce.
Check out who co-creators Derek Waters and Jeremy Konners have called on for this season of alcohol-inspired storytelling.
Dern is set to portray Nellie Bly, one of America's most famous investigative journalists. We're assuming she's going to have some fun with Bly's whole "pretending to be a mentally-ill person and exposing what really happens in insane asylums" thing.
No need to explain why this funny lady is going to be on the show. She's already proven herself on Arrested Development.
Palicki is making sure Plemons and Gilford aren't the only Friday Night Lights stars that are going to have fun with some good ol' history.
Friends and Cougartown. 'Nuff said.
Last time Wilson was on DH, she played Dolly Parton.
Bonet's portrayal of Mary Ellen Pleasant must be what inspired her husband Momoa (Khal Drogo) to join the cast.
The fellow Cougartown star is also set to appear in the show. Fingers crossed that she and Cox will be in the same episode.
Since her sister Zooey already appeared on the show, it's about time that Emily jumps on board.
The Parks and Recreation star will play singer Sylvia Robinson alongside the Sugarhill Gang (Da'Vone McDonald, Jaleel White, Ron Funches).
As much as we loved watching Ryder at war with the Puritans, this time we'll see her play Peggy Shippen, wife of Benedict Arnold (Chris Parnell).
We're excited to see this Glee star breakaway from her OCD-character.
Trophy Wife might be over, but that doesn't mean that Watkins is out of our lives forever.
The 2 Broke Girls writer is set to narrate one of the episodes.
The stand-up comedian has written for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and 2 Broke Girls.
We've got a strong feeling that this Criminal Minds star has got some great storytelling skills.
To get a taste of what Kirkman's like on Drunk History, take a look at her wine-filled story of the friendship between Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.
