Late Night Comedy Night Class on History; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of February 22, 2016)

History

HISTORY presents Night Class, a short-form, late-night comedy block premiering Thursday, February 25 at 11:30PM ET/PT. Night Class premieres with three original short-form comedy series and additional series will be added to the block. The first to premiere include: Great Minds with Dan Harmon - Created by Dan Harmon (Community, Rick and Morty) and Richard Korson (The Daily Show, Those Who Can't), the series follows Harmon who invests in a time machine and is subsequently visited by history's greatest minds. Harmon discusses his visitors' lives and brings them out into the modern world, embarking on an adventure that drops these famous historical figures right into today's advanced society. The series features a stellar group of comedic performers including: Jack Black as Ludwig Van Beethoven, Sarah Silverman, Jason Sudeikis, Dana Carvey, Aubrey Plaza, Kristen Schaal, Nick Kroll, Scott Adsit as Ernest Hemingway, Andy Dick, Ron Funches, Paul F. Tompkins, Thomas Middleditch and Robert Smigel.

Then we have Crossroads of History - Created and written by Elizabeth Shapiro, the scripted short form series examines the fascinating and largely unknown moments in history that have shaped the world. Crossroads of History will lift the veil on famous events and expose little known but historically accurate facts of the story, such as: how President Lincoln's alcoholic bodyguard, John Parker, chose the wrong night to leave his post at the Ford Theatre and how rejection from art school set a young artist, Adolf Hitler, on a very different career path. The series will include talent such as, Lou Diamond Phillips), Brian Baumgartner, Angela Kinsey, Keir O'Donnell, Jack McBrayer, Wayne Knight, Lloyd Ahlquist and Paul Scheer).

And finally How to Lose the Presidency - Throughout the history of presidential elections there are always those inspirational moments that propel a candidate to victory. These are not those moments. How to Lose the Presidency showcases real clips of embarrassing moments and mistakes from Howard Dean's scream heard round the world and Rick Perry's time of forgetfulness to outrageous moments in the current presidential campaign.
