Here's Your First Look at Drunk History's Miami Episode
Maya Rudolph as Griselda Blanco

Comedy Central's Drunk History — a show that's the perfect marriage between education and inebriation — returns for its third season tonight at 10:30 pm. This episode finds itself in Miami, where Ponce de Leon searches for the New World, Griselda Blanco (AKA "The Black Widow") takes command of the Magic City's once-sizable cocaine trade, and screen legend Clark Gable joins the Army Air Corps during World War II.
Drunk History's Miami episode looks particularly funny as Johnny Knoxville plays Ponce de Leon and the always-hysterical Maya Rudolph takes on the role of Griselda Blanco. Less promising is Josh Hartnett as Clark Gable, but while Hartnett may not have the comic chops of Rudolph or physical commitment of Knoxville, he definitely has the look. If the preview is any indication, a Tuesday night spent in front of the TV set with some drunk PhDs waxing poetic about the 305 sounds like a good bet:
And though there's certainly no need to be drunk while recounting Miami's weird and wonderful history (it's really intoxicating on its own), it certainly can't hurt. Assuming we're not mired in a history hangover, we'll have a recap for you Wednesday.
Drunk History airs on Comedy Central Tuesday, September 8, at 10:30 p.m.
