Watch Lin-Manuel Miranda Slur the ‘Drunk History’ of ‘Hamilton’
The very first Drunk History in 2007 started with the duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, leaving it uncertain if we’d ever see a retelling from the Hamilton master, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Thankfully, the day has arrived, as a drunk Miranda leads a new all-star retelling of Hamilton’s life with a clip from Monday’s Drunk History.
Ahead of Tuesday’s premiere, Entertainment Weekly caught the first official clip from Drunk History’s new “Hamilton” episode, featuring the musical creator and former star getting nice and toasted for an in-the-know retelling.
In addition to Arrested Development star Alia Shawkat in the title role, and Aubrey Plaza sneering it up as Hamilton’s rival Aaron Burr, the clip also features Fargo favorite Bokeem Woodine in the role of George Washington. Other famous faces from the November 29 outing include Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, Wet Hot American Summer creator David Wain, and Veep (along with Shawkat’s Arrested co-star) Tony Hale.
You can see the full episode for yourself on Tuesday, and catch Miranda’s music in Disney’s Moana over the weekend.
