Comedy Central to stream a pub quiz

Russell Kane to host on Facebook Live

Comedy Central is hosting a Facebook Live pub quiz  to launch series three of Drunk History.

It will be hosted by Russell Kane from an East London bar, and the broadcaster claims it is the first pub quiz to be dreamed this way.

Stars from the new series will be taking part, including Charlotte Crosby, Jamie Laing, Arron Crascall, Iain Stirling, Judi Love and Tom Rosenthal.

The rounds will be based on the historical stories featured in the show and viewers will be invited to comment as the night goes on.

It will be streamed live on Comedy Central’s Facebook page next Wednesday from 9pm to 9:50pm – just before the third series begins.
