Brace yourself for a big swig of history, Baltimore.
The Comedy Central show "Drunk History," which features spifflicated storytellers recounting great moments in our nation's past, will be filming at Mother's Federal Hill Grille on Thursday night.
Lutherville native Derek Waters will be returning to his hometown to film this episode of the show, which was an online sensation before being picked up by Comedy Central in 2012.
The show, which starts its second season this year, features famous actors reenacting history as told by the inebriated narrators. Past episodes have featured Michael Cera as Alexander Hamilton, Jack Black as Elvis Presley and Winona Ryder as a Salem Witch.
If you'd like to be a part of "Drunk History," arrive at Mother's Federal Hill Grille before 8 p.m. Thursday, as it's likely to be packed, according to a news release from the Maryland Historical Society. The show is scheduled to tape until 1 a.m.
