Comedy Central's Drunk History has it all, from the boozy narration of notable historic moments to rotating cast members who take on the roles of a parade of historical figures. One of the draws of each episode is seeing what celebrity guests will portray which historic characters. This list of the Drunk History cast and guest stars will help you keep track of who has played who.
Although Lin-Manuel Miranda may be known for his turn as Alexander Hamilton, it's Alia Shawkat who portrays the founding father for his narration. This is just one of several times the actress has been a guest on Drunk History. Another regular member of Drunk History is Colin Hanks, who has played everyone from Mr. Rogers to Charles Dickens. Celebrities who guest star only once on Drunk History are just as memorable, such as Crispin Glover as Thomas Edison (opposite John C. Reilly as Nikola Tesla) or Octavia Spencer as Harriet Tubman.
Let's refresh our memories, with or without a glass of your favorite drink, and take a look back at some of the people you forgot were guest stars on Drunk History.
