Lin-Manuel Miranda is going to be on 'Drunk History' telling—duh—the story of Hamilton and Burr
If you’re still kind of broken up about Lin-Manuel Miranda leaving the cast of Hamilton, along with the fact that you couldn’t afford to drop the $20,000 that some audience members paid to witness his parting performance, prepare once more to watch history repeat itself – drunkenly. Entertainment Weekly reports that Miranda will narrate an episode of Drunk History that recalls the infamous Alexander Hamilton/Aaron Burr feud (because, obviously). To that we say, Yas, yas, and more yas. ALL OF THE YASSES.
During Thursday’s Comic-Con panel, Drunk History creator Derek Waters made the announcement that Miranda would join the list of inebriated story tellers for the show’s upcoming season. Other season 4 guests include Rachel Bilson, Michael Cera, Josh Charles, Kat Dennings, Ben Folds, Dave Grohl, Elizabeth Olsen, Aubrey Plaza, Ronda Rousey, Liev Schreiber, and the ah-mazing list goes on.
In a perfectly clear-cut example of why one should never say never, Miranda actually tweeted that he wouldn’t revisit Hamilton’s story on Drunk History because it had already been done:
But alas, Hollywood had other plans and for that we are eternally grateful. Now, Miranda’s upcoming appearance should totally mend your broken Hamilton hearts, temporarily at least. Consider this: viewing is cheaper than the cost of a Broadway musical, plus you’ll be hella entertained right from the comfort of your own couch.
In the meantime, if you have yet to watch Drunk History (say it isn’t so), then immediately right that wrong by watching one of our personal favorite episodes – this shit-faced recounting of Harriet Tubman’s Civil War contributions is everything.
Sigh. Why wasn’t this show around when we had to sit through all those mind-numbing history lectures in school?
