Drunk History will be telling three tales from Los Angeles' past in its hallmark inebriated fashion.

Comedy Central's Drunk History, the dubiously educational history show where comedians retell the past while utterly annihilated on booze, will be focusing on Los Angeles tonight, according to Los Angeles Magazine.

We'll get to hear about 19th century vigilante Andrés Pico, Hollywood dog Rin Tin Tin, and William Mulholland and Fred Eaton's quest to build the L.A. Aqueduct.

In this particular episode, Jack Black will take on the role of Mulholland, Zach Woods (Silicon Valley) will play Rin Tin Tin's trainer and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) will play Pico.

Check out a clip form Mulholland's chapter, narrated by a sloshed Jeremy Konner, Drunk History's producer, below. "Either L.A. has to stop growing or we have to figure out more water," Mulholland realizes. Some things never change.
