That series merely scratches the surface of his creative output, and we’re so excited to develop even more projects with him through Comedy Central Productions,” said Sarah Babineau and Jonas Larsen, Co-Heads of Original Content, Comedy Central.

Boundary-pushing Drunk History is nominated for three Emmy Awards this year – Outstanding Variety Sketch Series, Derek Waters for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Series, and Outstanding Picture Editing for Variety Programming.
