The panel will include Taran Killam (SNL), who has guest starred on all three seasons of the show, along with other guest stars and narrators. There will be a Q&A, an interactive live event, and plenty more fun and debauchery as only Drunk History can create. Following that, the party continues with a look at Comedy Central’s new series, Another Period, premiering Tuesday, June 23. The turn-of-the-century historical and satirical scripted series follows the insanely ridiculous and debaucherous life of the Bellacourts, who have more servants than relatives and whose days are filled with money, sex, drugs, and more money.
